THE UNREAD PAGES OF MY DIARY

Written by: DEBASISH MISHRA

The unread pages of my diary....
Distress & the misery....
Confined to only me...
Which no one else could see....
Makes me just half a man...
As helpless like an orphan!

Wounded words & woes of the heart...
& agonies that will never depart...
Hide in the pages within...
So that they are unread,unseen....

Ink mingled with tears
And,oft, some red appears...
Confined to this little book...
Which no one else will ever look!

Depressed verses...a pathetic version...
As though I am another person...
A person I couldn't recognize....
An icon of sorrow to be precise....

The unread pages of my diary...
The misery & the mystery...
Still surprises me with its grandeur....
Although I am the lone reader.....
