By Anupreeta Chatterjee
I betrothed loneliness
But it withheld permission.
It draws upon my life’s caricature,
I feel broken in the midst of hopes
As my denuded heart seeks for love and redressal.
Oceans of emotions are drenched
I sit and mourn even after being surrounded by people.
Oh lord! At least acquiesce my heart to bleed
And settle with my loneliness.
I am yearning to see myself seeking attention
Of loneliness which has abnegated my feelings
To live and vow her.
Oh Loneliness! Don’t barricade my feelings for you,
Be my consort for a lifetime,
I want to behold you forever.
You are the most sublime emotion
And I can survive with you without too much conundrums.
I believe in you,
Just be with me forever.
We will reconcile with peace and then,
We can hope to see a better world.
Just be mine.
And stay with me forever.
