Poetry from Prasannakumar Dalai

Older middle aged South Asian man with reading glasses, a dark collared shirt, and blue jeans. He's outside in front of a tree and dry grass.


Mind never agrees though intently I see

I die checking who wrote these words

Who clings to my heart so very much

Lost and absorbed, my eyes overflow 

I know not myself despite attempts

The evening wind blows with hisses

The mind for no reason goes shrinking

My Days drown as my heart throbs

I do my best to be absolutely genuine

But someone unforgotten cheats me

I do listen to her tremendous laughter

And fall asleep with a sweet dream.


The wild emotions of mine fly away

Shedding all their faded feathers

Me so lonely now with none beside me

Deserted are the sands of time

Old emotions fade away like blooms

My soul does write desolate thoughts 

Of my mind in odd and hidden tunes

My mind filled with an aroma unknown 

Gentle breeze blows caressing quietly 

All the hopes the sky and waves pour

I shape them into words to give you

Passionate are tunes and words I give.


The meeting is an explanation

My myth of love is older than we’re

Let the heartbeats stay tuned

Two hearts have to be brought closer

To rest on my beautiful dreams’ arm

Now I feel the world is at my feet

Sometimes find my dreams weaker

Than the broken bits of the mirror

Now settled from being shattered

Hearts are like shrines in a temple

Where we both religiously worship

God is sure to take care of our realm.


If there is something in your heart

Your eyes have already expressed it

It feels like spending a decade to know you

Every time we meet I do feel afresh 

As if your eyes were talking something

While alone, your eyes stalk behind my shade

A journey of ages has wound up in just one moment

I have no idea if my life has moved so fast

I keep thinking about you for hours

As if every breath of mine was just yours.
