Collaboration No #177

Epistolary poem #177 Presented by Dr. Prasana Kumar Dalai of India and
Kristy Raines of The United States of America


Mind never agrees though intently I see
I die checking who wrote these words
Who clings to my heart so very much
Lost and absorbed, my eyes overflow
I know not myself despite attempts
The evening wind blows with hisses
The mind for no reason goes shrinking
My Days drown as my heart throbs
I do my best to be absolutely genuine
But someone unforgotten cheats me
I do listen to her tremendous laughter
And fall asleep with a sweet dream.

She remembers days of laughter and responds…


When I read your letters, tears flow
Should I believe the words I now read?
They used to be so clear with intent
Now I question if you still mean them
Do you think I can no longer feel you?
Circumstances undid our relationship
They can not be glued back together
but can be put back together differently
You try hard to pretend we are fine
though I still feel your deep resentment
But good memories still remain here,
as sounds of our laughter peep through
And as I drift to sleep, there you are. ©
