moments from the journey poem 16

moments from the journey

Sharmishtha Basu is an unemployed artist, writer who is out to test her works, looking for publicists, literary agents and gallant, generous readers, to see if they can help her to build an “unorthodox” career, a path followed by many before, some has been blessed with success, most have not, let us see what you make of her attempts! A failure or success- it all depends on you. These are pieces from her book, the book is available on createspace and amazon- It is a collection of poems and black and white illustrations to go with them. Some are photographs, others paintings, cyber sketches mainly.

Moments from the journey

Don’t play with your pain.
Sweet one it’s all consuming
ruthless fire which slowly
consumes the heart which lets it stay!

Once allowed to stay longer than it should,
it will make its home in a heart
convincing the heart it’s an essence
then it’s flames will spread around.

It slowly consumes the entire being
turns a living, thriving life
into a handful of dust and ashes.
Its raging flames never stop burning!

Don’t let it linger in your heart.
Either extinguish it with love
or just throw it out of your life
and move ahead without giving it chance!
