BY-Smruti Ranjan Mohanty


No one was with me
No one is with me
No one will be with me
Except Him at whose lotus feet
I have surrendered my life.
Karmic debts and deposits
Sorrow, happiness and anguish

Over the years
My love and tears
Longing and relationship
Had been but marriages of conveniences
Permutations and combination for a better deal
No one was bad, no one was good
No one my friend, no one my enemy
Nothing but my priorities
Defined me and my relationships
My relationship was as transitory
As my passion and infatuation
Only for a period of time
Wilted like night jasmine

Love, romance, relationship
Everything has changed
Everyone faded Including me
But not He who is beyond time
He has been there since the day I am
His love and concern has never changed
My relationship with Him is as fresh
As it was long back when we last met
On the other side of infinity

My Lord!
I am beaten and betrayed every moment
But again fall in love forgetting
What happened yesterday
My father! you graced me
I could realise the futility of the game
But I am still in the game
Give me the will and strength to come out of it
From illusion to reality
From darkness to light
To be at your feet
With nothing bothering me from outside

    Introspective as always the poem could be enlivened by some objective description or images of the real world or some action to make it more interesting to the general reader
