Poetry from Dr. Prasana Kumar Dalai

Older middle aged South Asian man with reading glasses and a white collared shirt and black spotted tie in a car with a street market and white cow out the window.
Dr. Prasana Kumar Dalai

In my words you come every moment 
They all bear your name of my breath
Do stop when I don't take your name
When you're annoyed to be honest 
Whenever it happens I am with you
Know not why I care for you so much
I find you and I do accept your entity
But just can't stay away from yours
You're so close for you're my secret 
Honestly I exist for your good self only
I can't think of staying away from you. 


After crossing the road of our love
We met leaving far behind everything
How about walking to the no man's land
Hardly do we know eachother though
I feel as if I 've got my soulmate in you
Days go by ; nights don't seem to glide
Memories of yours do torment me a lot
The world has reduced me to this state 
Sitting and clutching my wounded past
Cause you're so close to me , you know
But I think you're out of my reach now .


I wish your presence when I am awake
Always in my dreams if I shut my eyes
I've recorded my world in your name
For the first time in my life you came
My eyes were wet while laughing
Nothing in my hand ; me empty &  lonely
Your entity you know essential to me
My palm lines aren't perfect though
It is clear you've accepted me as I am 
There was loneliness in my heart and
In your presence I feel heavenly bliss .


The pain and anguish won't be lost
But I 'll be yours all the days ahead 
I 've scattered myself around you
Love has bloomed in your fragrance 
I accept it whatever be consequences 
I belong to you and I do live in yours
I care not if the world stands against 
Call me faithless and I won't mind ever
I see my heaven burnt ere even built
Now where 'll this affliction of love reside
I crave for you no matter what you're .

One thought on “Poetry from Dr. Prasana Kumar Dalai

  1. I found poetic licks like “ Sitting and clutching my wounded past” and “affliction of love “ memorable and relatable. Who among us has not at some point cling to the wounds of our past? The trick is knowing when to let go of our often doomed love affair with our painful afflictions.—Jacques Fleury, author of “You Are Enough: The Journey to Accepting Your Authentic Self”
