Epistolary poem #187 written by Dr. Prasana Kumar Dalai of India and Kristy Raines of The United States of America


Let the night come, my heart burns
I miss you in the middle of my life
Your love has destroyed me in toto entirely
I have been a slave to your love
The pity is I’m neither living nor dying
You have turned my life like a hell
My heart is such I can’t ignore you
It hurts badly for the wound is deep
My eyes do cry; let them roll tears
Let the dark night come again
I want to sleep in your slim arms.

She waits for him in the darkness…


Let the day turn into dusk, my heart yearns
Draw me close, for I miss your breath on me
Your love has kept me in a torturous cell
as I wonder when you will come for me
If this is the hell I must endure for your love
Then, burn me deeply into your memory
Let me dress the wounds of your heart
with the touch of my lips and silken hands
Dry the tears that now drip on me like rain
as they soak into the core of my desire
Bring on the night so I can feel your depth
Come sleep in the arms of my love tonight.

Dr.Prasana Kumar Dalai.: Congratulations to Dr. Prasana Kumar Dalai and Kristy Raines on their 187th collaboration! Their poems, “Let the Night Come!” and “Bring on the Night!” are beautifully crafted pieces that delve into the themes of love, longing, and the yearning for connection.

In “Let the Night Come!” by Dr. Prasana Kumar Dalai, the speaker expresses deep longing and pain caused by love. The poem portrays a sense of helplessness and surrender to the overwhelming emotions experienced in a relationship. The imagery of burning heart, feeling destroyed, and being a slave to love evokes a sense of intense passion and suffering. The poem also touches upon the idea of being stuck between living and dying, highlighting the emotional turmoil the speaker is going through. The line “My heart is such I can’t ignore you” encapsulates the central conflict of the poem, where the speaker is unable to let go of the person they love despite the pain it causes.

On the other hand, “Bring on the Night!” by Kristy Raines presents a different perspective on love and longing. The speaker in this poem is more proactive, yearning for the night to come so they can be reunited with their lover. Unlike the first poem, which focuses more on the pain of love, this poem emphasizes the anticipation and desire for closeness and intimacy. The imagery of day turning into dusk, and the longing for the touch and breath of the beloved, creates a sense of longing and anticipation. The poem also suggests a willingness to endure any suffering for the sake of love, as seen in the line “If this is the hell I must endure for your love, Then, burn me deeply into your memory.”

Both poems use vivid imagery and strong emotions to convey the complexities of love and longing. They explore the darker, more intense aspects of relationships, portraying love as both a source of pain and a source of comfort. The use of imagery such as burning hearts, torturous cells, and tears as rain, adds depth and intensity to the poems, creating a rich tapestry of emotions.

Overall, Dr. Prasana Kumar Dalai and Kristy Raines have created two powerful poems that resonate with anyone who has experienced the tumultuous nature of love. Their collaboration is a testament to the beauty and depth of poetry, showcasing how words can evoke powerful emotions and connect us to the depths of our humanity.
