Thank you so much Cijo Joseph Chennelil sir reviewing my poem, Humbled and Honoured.
(2616)My creatively positive rumination on a wonderful poem titled “SECRET OF TORMENT !” delineated by DrPrasana Kumar Ji from India.
SECRET OF TORMENT !
I’m sans your hopes and compassion
Cause we are strangers
You never gaze at me with sincerity
My heart no longer shakes when I speak
Your glances reveal not the secret of torment
My memories are now my companions
Your shadows and my painful nights speak aloud
If love turns a disease, it’s best to forget it
If relationship becomes burdensome
It is best to end it then and there
Our tale can’t culminate in a moment
Let’s conclude it beautifully .

Dr.Prasana Kumar Ji,
Your poem titled “Secret of Torment” is a poem that depicts life’s complexities in a subtle fashion.The rupture is reiterated in no uncertain terms.The tag of not knowing to each other is apparent.The pseudo expressions are the hallmarks of the behaviour coming from the other side.The emotion is settled and the heart keeps its peace holistically.There is no shadow hidden in those gazes.Those good old days are numbered.The lingering memories still haunt the individual in question here in the poem.The possessive love should be put at rest.The connections of lethal and venomous nature should be done away with.The parting in good terms is envisaged here rather than acrimonious exit from one another.Kudos to you for composing such a poem of outstanding nature.
Cijo Joseph Chennelil.
