Humbled and Honoured.

Collaboration #188 By Dr. Prasana Kumar Dalai of India and Kristy Raines of The United States of America


A chasm does open up as all roads fail
Why any cure now for a broken heart
Happiness always far-fetched for me
May you be blessed with it as you go
I pray fervently you do prosper in life
May your hopes and dreams come true
May you be free from my nothingness
I ‘ve closed all my roads to come to you
Never mind,simply ignore and walk away
Be progressive and productive all way.

She always wondered if he would utter these
words to her one day
Now, she speaks her truth to him…


I am the chasm that opens to clear the road
to where you will find comfort for your heart
Happiness has always been in front of you
but you insist on looking beyond me for more
My blessings have always been with you
standing right next to me
Is prosperity just found in glory for you?
My riches have come from our love
You can never be free from me in this life
for it is still us, as it was from the beginning
You do not have the power to close that road
It is the road that we both still walk together
It will never be me who walks away
May success never be the reason you forget me.

Congratulations to Dr. Prasana Kumar Dalai and Kristy Raines on their 188th collaboration! The poems “Never Mind!” and “It Will Never Be Me Who Walks Away!” are emotionally charged pieces that explore themes of love, loss, and the complexities of human relationships.

In “Never Mind!” by Dr. Prasana Kumar Dalai, the speaker expresses a sense of resignation and acceptance of a situation where happiness seems elusive. The poem opens with a powerful image of a chasm opening up when all roads fail, symbolizing the feeling of being at a crossroads in life. The speaker acknowledges their own shortcomings, expressing a desire for the other person to prosper and find happiness, even if it means letting go. The poem ends with a plea to ignore the speaker’s nothingness and to move forward with progress and productivity.

On the other hand, Kristy Raines’ “It Will Never Be Me Who Walks Away!” presents a contrasting perspective. The poem is a response to the first, with the speaker asserting their presence and commitment in the face of adversity. Unlike the resigned tone of the first poem, this poem is more assertive and defiant. The speaker declares that they are the chasm that clears the road, offering comfort to the other person’s heart. They challenge the idea that happiness is found elsewhere, insisting that it has always been present in their love. The poem ends with a strong declaration that it will never be the speaker who walks away, emphasizing their enduring commitment and love.

In terms of style, both poems use vivid imagery and emotive language to convey their respective messages. Dr. Prasana Kumar Dalai’s poem is more introspective and reflective, focusing on personal feelings of inadequacy and the desire for the other person’s well-being. Kristy Raines’ poem, on the other hand, is more assertive and outwardly focused, emphasizing the strength of the speaker’s love and commitment.

Overall, both poems offer powerful insights into the complexities of human relationships and the different ways people navigate love and loss. The poems complement each other well, presenting two sides of the same emotional coin. Dr. Prasana Kumar Dalai’s poem captures the vulnerability and uncertainty that come with letting go, while Kristy Raines’ poem celebrates the strength and resilience of enduring love. Together, they create a rich tapestry of emotions that resonates with anyone who has experienced the challenges of love and relationships.
