My poem” BEYOND WORDS ” reviewed by honorable reviewer Prof. Dr Nirakar Dash , Department of English of Assam University.
Humbled & Honoured.


Beyond words is the emptiness within
The nameless bond makes us restless
Your shadow does linger in my eyes
Even if I wish it can’t be done away with
Drifting away from your sweet memories
The path we used to take the other days
All those trails have already vanished
Nights feel melancholic and days grieve
All the crowds ‘re silent ; stay out of me
To point where tears reflect my heart .

“Beyond Words” by the well known poet Dr Prasanna Kumar Dalai shows the lover’s inability and failure in love.The boredom resulting from the estrangement of his beloved is beyond expression.”The nameless bond” indicates that the relationship they had, perhaps couldn’t culminate in marriage. “The shadow” in the third line references Eliot’s,”Between the idea and the reality… Falls the shadow” ,which stands for the sense of loss and hollowness the poet can’t dispel.He laments the bygone days of mirth and joy with her.Now she being separated from him, he grieves twenty four seven, which is explicit in the line:””Night feel melancholic and days grieve “His gloomy state of mind consequent upon the shattered love repels his friends and companions from him leading to a sort of social alienation.Veiwed from Eliot’s stand point, the poet suffers like Brutus in “Julius Caesar” whose all manoeuvres have failed, and the word “shadow” in the poem suggests that the poet is not cut out for his love.Very nice poem Prasanna Sir.Congratulatios and regards.
