Readers Comments On “Poetry Contest: Write a short poem on ‘Love and Relationship’”

  1. 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.

  2. Sunila Khemchandani

    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

    ©®Sunila – 09/09/2017.


    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

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  6. “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.

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  9. 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

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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

  14. Anil Krishnanunni

    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.

  15. 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.

  16. Meenakshi agarwal

    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.

  17. 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.

    ‘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

  19. 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”

  20. Taetvik Basumatary

    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.

  21. Jamuna Rangachari

    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

  22. 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.

  23. 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……

  24. 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..

  25. 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

  26. 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

  27. 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!

  28. 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!

  29. #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…

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

    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)

  32. Kritagya Daarshanik

    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)

  33. 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…

  34. 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

  35. 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 !!!

  36. *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..

    1. Sarbani Siuli Mondal

      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.

  37. 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…

  38. Rachana Chakraborty

    #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.

  39. 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…

  40. 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.

  41. 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!

  42. 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… ❤

  43. 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.

  44. 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

  45. 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.

  46. 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.

  47. 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.

  48. 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.

  49. 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

  50. 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.

  51. 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.

  52. 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

  53. Ramit Chakraborty

    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.

      1. Geethanjali Dilip

        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. 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.

      3. Biswarup Sinha Roy

        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. 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

    1. ‘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.
