      1. Reservoir
        You sealed my memory once with an au revoir,
        My eyes that drank moondrops from yours, loves reservoir,
        Dark and replete with a still void of endlessness,
        Till you kissed me again to burst into a million stars of happiness.

        1. You watched the unspoken understanding in my gleaming eyes;
          Elucidating your enigmatic smile, I dwindle by the second,
          I contentedly steal your charm, in a noxious deal
          Seal my fate in a barter with your ebbing love.

          1. Come roll me up in the tarp canvas
            Paint red my meek shriveled toes
            I’m in love with those riveting woes
            Seeking your penetrating opus
            (Radha to Krishna )
            ©®Nandita Samanta


        Adhering you in an eternal embrace, my heart gives the feeling of joy.

        Oh ! the enchanting smile…its perceiving, the way we feeling coy.

        Smiling faces, holding hands in complete affinity.

        Misty eyes glaring deeply, in an ethreal unicity.

        Heaven juxtaposed you and me on earth beneath
        we signed the oath to love each other till death
        the oath is stashed in heaven’s locker since then
        bound by a cord eternal not mundane

      4. Homeland

        Your collarbones mark the borderline of the city I love the most./
        Fingers intertwined we fenced a country we created our own,/
        Now left a diasporic refugee to settle in a stranger’s arms./
        Does the baul’s song still remind you of our love, we called home?

    1. This is my confession.
      I will be the brightest side for you to gaze.
      As dark as I am, I will find enough light to adore you to pieces.
      With all of my pieces!

    2. Laughter and tears; shouts and fears,
      All that matter between Us is here
      In a room full of metaphors, love and desire, Is Our world that we hold dear.

      1. Simmering Love

        Love simmered in my smouldering heart’s embers
        Love drizzled like mercy from the beatific heavens
        Love emboldened me to cocoon you like a butterfly in a lotus flower
        Love’s mystical magic made me your slave forever

    3. ‘Together and Forever’

      Will you be there with me,
      when am low
      Will you be there in moments of joy,
      Will you be there with me in despair; to enlighten and inspire.
      Will you be there,Together and Forever.

  1. Looking at your face
    Oft turns me a poet,
    In your eyes I find words
    On your lips all alphabets

  2. Just before dusk,
    The sky tells upon a bay,
    With te deum laudamus
    Singing the passage of a day…

  3. Black Beauty

    She is darkness herself,
    Beyond beautiful, handcrafted by Passion,
    Mysterious, her voluptuous body craves intimacy of a wild soul who can satisfy her burning desires.

  4. Love

    A feel of security
    A trust of togetherness

    One form of existence
    One chance of indigence

    A peeking smile from the window
    A trust for the high flight

    This is all about LOVE

  5. Travellers in the night
    Two trains passing by
    Close enough to touch
    Yet staying but a moment
    Words just seem too much
    Yet, too little, is every moment spent

    And the kiss…
    The kiss that is like no other
    That has no beginning or end
    Two hungry pairs of lips
    Just seeking the other…
    Finding… Locking..
    And then….the universe explodes!

    A cascade of reactions
    All expressed through lips
    Slow, fast, gentle, hungry, wanting, giving
    Everything is either dark, or too luminous…
    But they don’t open their eyes
    They don’t need to see
    They feel everything, as if reading a script with their fingertips

    Such is the story of the travellers
    Like something celestial
    They travel through cosmos
    Drifting in their worlds
    But sometimes they align
    And just for one night
    They have their own universe

  6. Kiss for me, Your lips
    My aura was lighted
    The eyes of love staring under my eyelid
    My awakening soul for you
    Kiss for me, your lips
    My aura was lighted
    A warm touch of engelic connection
    My soul was washed within
    Kiss for me, your lips
    My aura was lighted.

    1. Beyond the realm of all that you see,
      there would exist a house where we would be
      prisoners of a love that would never flee.
      I look for you in places you promised to take me.

  7. Kiss for me, Your lips
    My aura was lighted
    The eyes of love staring under my eyelid
    My awakening soul for you
    Kiss for me, your lips
    My aura was lighted
    A warm touch of angelic connection
    My soul was washed within
    Kiss for me, your lips
    My aura was lighted.

  8. The intensity of your voice,
    Making me lost in you.
    No matter how distant you are,
    I can never stop loving you.
    For me, love means two words,
    One is Me and the other is You

  9. My love for you is a cocktail mix of mysterious words and enigmatic spaces,
    I implore you if you love me, try to comprehend the words emerging from my heart,
    for in our relationship only if you understand my words of love from my deepest depths
    will you also be able to relate to my complicated stance and understand my loving silences.

  10. We both chased love
    Like children running after butterflies
    And when it stopped for us to settle
    We wanted it no more

  11. i’ve been trying to get over you
    but, my dear, you’ve helped me feel love
    and that’s what has been causing the problem.

    you and i cannot be together, and everyone else isn’t like you.

  12. Tempestuous journeys that weave hope
    In love, strife and laughter soak
    Those that alight before time
    In your hearts chime

    Kavita Panyam

  13. Love blossomed when we first met,
    The rains kindled a fire, while we were wet.
    Love brought us together, But Life kept us apart,
    But, we were sure never to leave each other’s heart.

  14. Recycled Love

    My heart got ripped by the draft of wind,
    I realized I was writing the first fillers to the bleeding pages of your heart;
    All you were passing to me was recycled love with a ‘tear shaped dew’ drop sliding down a rose.
    The love script had already been taken by the one who had opened your page first.


    Fifty years of togethetness;
    Sweethearts to man-wife to good friends
    Love changed form a million times
    But never was it once absent

  16. It is not important who says sorry…
    I say sorry… or you say sorry…
    It is not important who wins…
    I win … or you win…
    It is not important who loses….
    I loose …. or you loose,

    It is important that we care…
    I care … you care ….
    It is important …
    My heart bleeds for you..your heart bleeds for me,
    It is important that we feel…
    I feel you…you feel me,
    It is important we love….
    I love you… you love me

  17. handshakes, cupcakes, tea breaks, snowflakes, the nights awake,
    the rapt’rous kiss, the yearning, burning love we make,
    fighting, ignoring, screaming, and at last silence
    letting it all dissolve in unending heartache

  18. Love & Relationship

    Love is a feeling that comes and goes and then comes again,
    Why this happens to me? Is this my loss or my gain?
    My heart keeps wandering, when my past keeps haunting,
    But still, my present relationship is healthy, without any daunting.

  19. Hearts stolen, tucked away, broken
    It’s not love,for love heals
    You and me, but US they see
    That’s love, that’s how it feels.

  20. We are lovers fallen apart
    Much before we could unite,
    It’s God who make relationships,
    Maybe we were meant to love only from afar.

  21. Dear Love, for nothing less than you,

    I can be your’s and you can be me,

    Would I broke this happy dream,

    Does it was only a theme…

  22. I bet he is lying there thinking
    I wish that she was here
    He is probably hugging his pillow right now
    And whispering in its ear
    I cnt wait till tomorrow
    I miss my woman
    It will feel like a touch of heaven
    With her by my side
    Want to sing together
    As i look into her eyes
    I love her smile
    She is as pure as mountain’s dew
    I feel on cloud 9 when he whispers ‘I Love You’…..
    He is the king of hearts sent down from heaven
    I am forever thankful for my endowment
    I will treat him with respect and love… ❤

  23. “This has happened for the first time ?
    Why did I feel like this
    Knowingly or unknowingly,
    ” I feel in love with you

  24. You delved deeper into the depths of my soul,
    Tearing through mantles, in arrant rhapsody!
    Until you dared to invade, the nebulous blackhole-
    Lying in eternal wait, and got consumed!

  25. I may have never told you
    The feelings I hold for you so deep
    Just look into my eyes for once
    My silence says it all, your heart is for me to keep.

  26. Rainbow

    Fought, made up, looked away, stole a gaze.

    Loved, laboured, and lost again; was that a poetry or a maze?

    But came a spring, and blew a breeze; on the cactus – came a bee,

    Who won, which war, who cares, who lost! In love, they were… entwined yet free!

  27. The strangeness in those familiar eyes,
    The aloofness that your heart contrives,
    The semblance of your changing desire,
    Would never be enough to put out this fire.

  28. Love puts –
    The meaning in a glance,
    The warmth in a smile,
    The tenderness in a touch,
    The beauty in each day !!

  29. The whispering raindrops mingle with my tears,
    Shall we ever meet, my heart always fears,
    They do not know you are but me,
    And that is how it will always be.

  30. Relationship is like a tree
    Water it with love
    Let the roots grow strong
    To reap the fruits and shade above

    – Prerna Wahi

  31. A welcome intruder…

    Like a kite so full of life, I fly high and free;
    In your hand is the thread of love, releasing as well as binding me..
    In your silence I hear volumes of a fathomless love;
    Even your lovely talks say just one word – LOVE…

  32. #Contest Alert


    Waiting for you dear with subdued hope,

    With clustered hope to rest in your cozy arms..

    Exhausted body ponders for the tight clutch,

    Desiring for the warmth which your touch initiates.

  33. I was with you because I felt for you…
    Because you were the friend to bring change new…
    I was stupid, it was my debut…
    But in your list I was the last one in the queue…

  34. Love and Relationship

    Relation is thy name if love is found,
    Tender would be there like merry-go round.
    Relationship and love- do two coexist?
    If this be so, Love can’t resist.

    1. Love is a ribbon; relationship is flower,
      Combination of both acts as cloud & shower.
      Feel the love; relationship will be beautiful,
      And accept the relationship; your love become fruitful.

  35. *13 reasons why*

    She was a girl, lonely and wanted someone.
    She was beautiful but people craved her only for fun..
    She wanted someone to be with her, to love her,
    But found none.
    Silly girl, too sensible, stupid enough to end up her life…
    A grave mistake, that can’t be undone..

  36. A Place where the Dawn meets the Dusk & the Core touches the Crust
    Where the lovely Skies embrace the Earth & the Silence only that could listen the Worth
    We’ll be meeting someday, At that Destination…….
    The Destination named “Infinity”, Where Noone ever met !!!

  37. Tied around by the red thread of love
    Separated by distance,time and circumstances
    Nothing would separate the souls
    For their hearts beat together.

  38. The most abused four letter word
    She said with a wink
    I was talking about love
    What the **** did you think?

    – Prerna Wahi

  39. When love replaces ego
    A relationship stands tall
    If you are ready to forego
    You will soon conquer all

    – Prerna Wahi

  40. A feeling in sailor dress peeped when everyone left,
    Butterflies in stomach remained no longer an unfelt proverb.
    Waiting time turned tickling,meeting him became wishes,
    She soon became queen from a princess n what made her so was a sailor’s love

  41. For you were in every part of me
    And I couldn’t even be a part of your dreams
    For you kept me gasping for breath
    And I kept pumping life into you

  42. I redolence your wear while you are away to feel you near,
    Today our daughter redolence your sheets,a missing you fear.

  43. ?Our energies connect and intertwine
    Like the branches of two trees
    Hugging and trailing along one another
    And eventually growing together as one.?

  44. The breeze was pure and narcotic-
    Oh! the audacity we had to be there.
    The night was an everlasting silver filled with,
    the moments we stole and shared.

  45. Amidst the shining stars
    We sat and sat and sat some more

    She searched my eyes for an answer
    I knew nothing about the question

    I admired her magnanimous beauty with my bare eyes
    And she accepted my charms with an open heart

    The twinkling stars stared at our presence
    For they know not what we wanted to say

    We sat there some more and the night passed
    The desire that brewed in our blood gushed through our lips
    And we lied under the stars….. Hoping the night may never pass

    Never pass…


    A hollow heart’s rigid groan
    A selfless charm distinctly known

    A tragic path’s mocking rust
    Kissing fare thee well
    – the menacing lover’s escorting dust

  47. Title: The best girl to romance

    The smile that unfurled was like never before,
    The desire to live each moment a tad bit more.
    The songs in the sea shells made her dance,
    She had found herself, the best girl to romance.

    – Kritagya Daarshanik (Haywire Chronology)

  48. Title: Love was in the air

    He sank in the bottomless pit of despair,
    The fate he met, pretty common, definitely not rare,
    Only him to blame, the odds were against, he was aware,
    It all started, as they say, when love was in the air.

    – Kritagya Daarshanik (Haywire Chronology)

  49. Clouds-wrapped Sun lavishes,
    Longer sleep and lingering dreams
    Where You, I and kisses are plenty
    While Wakening cognizes endless nihility.

  50. Love, a bond of freedom’s promise;
    Pure and wise is such relation,
    Chain it’s wings and choke it’s breath;
    It may still live a smiling death…

  51. Bond not-to-be:-

    Oh eternal Love!
    Why seeking a relationship to subsist?
    Set your fondly wings
    Breaking free any namely liason❤

  52. #Youandme – For the contest

    It was always youandme and it will always be, because
    Your voice makes my heart quiver
    Your expressions are like a shining armor to my darkness
    Your smile is a closet of happiness
    Your touch is a cuddle to my bewildered heart
    It was always youandme and it will always be…

  53. Today the pen is the saviour
    The words, enemy

    If only, an empty paper
    Could tell you the pen’s rampage….

  54. The Final Stop :-

    My heart was a wanderer,
    Who found your Soul and called it HOME.
    Hold it there and make it yours,
    I don’t want it to saunter anymore!

  55. There in my deepest darkest slumber, amidst the night that bore no moonlight…
    ..where I no longer existed with all my plight..
    there you were waiting, at the crossroads of my life, wanting to hold my hand and just say, let me try.

  56. Sometimes I gaze into her eyes, and wonder
    Is love anything but a Bollywood blunder?
    Reading messages, not looking at the sender;
    Look bee, ’tis a new match for
    me, on Tinder!

  57. Mystical are the Moments
    when I sleepwalk to the rhythm of your love –
    Not wanting to wake up,
    Burning in the Flames of Desire…

  58. Love…a fragment. Love…a whole life in itself. Love…not once. Love…every time. Love…Intense. Love..Passionate. Love…Temporary? Love…A Phase! Love…Forever? Love…An Art. Love… A state of Mind. Love…An Emotion. Love…A Play of Hormones. Love…Desire Love…Fire Love…Happiness Love…Sorrow Love…Pain Love…Cure Love…Freedom Love…Boundation Love…Love….Love…Life

  59. When i talked about you, words formed a poem
    Song flew in the air as I hummed your name
    The world turned foe, my life haywire
    But the envelope of my heart now read only your letter

  60. Forever alone , gazing at the sky i wept ..
    It had been days since i peacefully slept ..
    You entered my life and became mine ..
    I haven’t been the same since that time..

  61. I have fallen for your laugh which is utterly contagious;
    I have fallen for your smile which makes me feel giddy for no reason at all;
    I have fallen for our jokes which I remember even days later and burst into laughter;
    I have fallen for how you can make my day better, even if I wanted to cry a moment before;
    I have fallen for every second I get to spend with you even if those seconds will always leave me wanting for more……

  62. The connect

    Under the stars and the full moon, two friends lay

    One thinking of his goals for future, and one thinking of her upcoming holiday

    Little did they know, they’d end up together

    15 years later, she with her backpack, he with a ring in his pocket, under the Eiffel Tower.

  63. Love – a transcendental feeling

    Experience sublime love in the heart
    Because, of all emotions, love is the subtlest
    Unconditional love makes our lives wonderful
    Our existence thus becomes meaningful

  64. For as long as the stars will shine,
    I will be yours, you will be mine

    Before they stop, they all will say
    These two have died, let’s go away

  65. Love’s sweet salve is when you touch
    nothing else can heal my pain

    I long to feel hurt later too
    so that you come and cure me again

  66. Love is like a sweet mysterious aroma;
    Carried to you by a gentle breeze once a while;
    Neither can you find it nor can you chase it;
    But just take it in and cherish, when it comes upon.

  67. If you are expecting a gorgeous fairytale
    I will weave it carefully for you everyday
    Even your silence doesn’t raise an alarm
    Expect any magic trick & I will perform

  68. Long distance love

    Tracing the contours of your face
    With my mouse’s embrace
    I wonder whether my mouse’s clicking
    Can keep our two tickers ticking.

  69. Soulful , divine and a day filled with sunshine ..
    All these words are used to describe love that is True.
    For me these words have no meaning ..
    The only word that describes love for me is “You”

  70. #Love #Poetrycontest
    ‘Chained to you’
    “There’s nothing out there that I wouldn’t do,
    To spend every second chained to you.
    I wanna hold you in an eternal embrace,
    Baby, you’re my favourite hiding place…”

    Bineesh Balakrishnan

  71. Love fulfilled is pure magic
    And love unfulfilled may be tragic
    But beyond the web of relationship
    Lies true love, really a devotee’s worship.

  72. The august gathering of flowers is for you my dear,as you melt in my arms with fear.
    Your heart beats with the sound of music aloud, as your body tells me your secret of love.
    The undying love in have finally found, its like the Peace of a hundred doves.

  73. We have no one but each other,life is always black white and grey as a feather.
    He is my white shining sunshine and I am his black secret like the coal of the deepest mine.
    I has stood at his doorstep years ago not knowing my life is inside ,and he had shut the door cos he though i was a waste of time.
    Now we both realise what love means,we are in each other,in heart ,in mind,but separated by a lifetime.

  74. Was that a mere coincidence that we met almost two decades back,
    Our relationship, since then, has got cherished memories in huge stack!
    Imperfect and incomplete you and me, who compels us to bond?
    Filling the gaps with colours, is the job of “Love”, our magic wand!
    -Anagha From Team Mocktailmommies

  75. #Love and relationship

    They ask
    From where did I find you
    I reply
    Every love has its own time….
    Not so long ago the time wasn’t right for me
    Now time is on my side and so is he.

  76. #Life is a stage

    In the theatre called life
    Love is a play filled with pain and pleasure
    Relationships are a play replete with peace and leisure

  77. I loved riddles, or so I thought until
    you solved the one that I never asked
    who gave you the right to cross the line
    and lift the mask

  78. He loved her,
    He grabbed her in his arms..
    And that’s all she ever needed.
    They loved their story fulfilled.

  79. Lovey-Dovey

    Amorous crazy duos swim in a love stream,
    Thus they climb on Everest – in a day dream.
    Fanatic two hearts dive through deep sea
    Lovey-Dovey makes duos whispering bee.

  80. It began with a tear and a hug,
    A shimmering star in the dark quiet night,
    Till it came tumbling to the ground,
    There is always a tear until comes by a hug.

  81. Wish our love was an immortal painting,
    by the million strokes of a master painter.
    For colours will stand the tides of time and chaos,
    with their hues dwelling freely in the finest of memories.

  82. Simmering Love

    Love simmered in my smouldering heart’s embers
    Love drizzled like mercy from the beatific heavens
    Love emboldened me to cocoon you like a butterfly in a lotus flower
    Love’s mystical magic made me your slave forever
    Copyright Lily Swarn 10.9.2017

  83. Love comes in sudden spurts,
    When your eyes are little specks afloat on a sky the colour of the blazing Chinar –
    A lantern in a paper-room blooms
    As we puff upon each other to stay aflame.

  84. At a distance, I see offices shut down
    And people returning to their houses,
    I wonder if one goes back only to write
    A poetry about whom they get back to.

  85. I saw you broken on the wings of hope,
    Tested beyond measure, more than your heart could cope,
    But I stand before you, my arms pray for thee,
    Your anger, pain and sadness, I vow to set free.

  86. While visiting your city inside me,
    You lived some of my lives.
    Now I have memories of things:
    That we never did.

  87. For a glimpse, she waited; every day and night –
    Scared she was; he was too good for her.
    The sun shone brighter; often laid back to admire
    The moon, his beautiful white goddess, he only wanted to impress.

  88. An only child, no friends so to say,
    Twenty years it took, her BFF she found.
    A friendship like no other, lost in its bliss…
    Little did she know, in love – she was

  89. You were my joy, you were my peace,
    You were the despair that came with grief.
    You held my hand as our laughter sang,
    Through the walls of my heart and eased the scary pangs.

  90. Two flowers together, swayed to the tune of the breeze;
    One was plucked,exhibited in bunch;while the other was left unseen.
    The virgin flower grabbed the eye;of a young lover passing by,
    And under a bridge,the two exchanged flowers,swayed together to let their love flower.
    Aritra Ganguly

  91. Stars and moon may leave the dark skies, I will never stop staring the gleam of your blue eyes, feeling the reflection of moments spent together, down the memory lane I promise will be yours forever..

  92. “I want the first person who kisses me be the one who kisses me on my death bed”, said that girl after hearing snow White tales
    Outside the room she questioned the screams
    Every night her mom made to
    Fulfill her dreams
    Unaware of reality, she a daughter of a prostitute wanted to love unconditionally.

  93. Four line love poem

    You inhaled the fragrance of my poem,
    and I saw hues of my happiness paint a rainbow in your eyes,
    with nothing to hold back, I gave you my entire sky ,
    the world saw our love scripted in thousand twinkling dots at night.

  94. I wrote your name on the cherry leaves,
    The great rains came and washed them away
    I cried like a child and the next day when I went,
    I saw your name written on all the cherry blossoms.

    pramila khadun


    I love you, Silently and within my core
    This love both an ache and a balm
    A many splendoured nuclear explosion
    Bursting forth in a chemical cloud,
    my love

  96. Love meant beyond its four letters,
    As blood bled from roses,
    Soaked inside the darkest corner of my heart,
    Bereaved over a cosmic union.

  97. Shiva and Shakti

    Shiva and Shakti, two beings one soul
    twin sides of same coin forever
    One inconceivable sans the other,
    A mystery why two if seem one

  98. Soulmates clamouring for companionship, love, care and happiness
    Of course there were misunderstandings that familiarity brings
    It is a world where relationships fraught with expectations
    Exist even between a mother and a child.

  99. I discovered true compassion when I discovered self love. Now I can walk into the horizon
    Holding my hand.
    Yours felt cold and distant my love.

  100. Somewhere you are breathing.
    Lost to me.
    But keeping me alive
    by being alive.

  101. A falling star and a wish is born
    Never rest forlorn
    The star dusts of Universe.
    In the bosom of the beloved, immerse.

  102. She blossomed like the flowers in her hair,
    Awake with feelings unaware,
    Her souls on fire while extremely tired,
    She has zero hopes of desire.
