They say four letters create the word 
A word that explains it well
Not enough...
'Tis a never ending tale
The tale of this fluttering heart.
How shall I put in words
A dream seen by the open eyes
A spell so delicately woven
One which never dies.
If I say, you are the sunshine
That brightens my world with its steady light
If I say, your presence creates the lost notes
That conclude my strains of love...
Not enough...
'Tis not enough to measure what's within
Words, they limit the flight of the heart
Yet I'll let them flow
Perhaps, someday...
Some of them
Some thoughts dipped in ink 
Will belong to us
It needn't possess you
Needn't infect you with euphoria
Needn't tell you anything but this:
The eyes which would look away
Will have a luminous light
That'll speak of a desire 
To hold you tight...
Greedily relishing,
The involuntary touch of moisture,
Speaking the muted words,
Quivering, parched lips
Will seek a soul dissolving kiss.

Words... they seem so insignificant
When it's about the depth, they'll be this poetess' fall
For the intensity of the unseen, unspoken shows her
They aren't enough...
Not enough to let you know
The dimensions her love can cover
The desire, pull, the bliss
Her restless soul feels
Uncountable ways of loving
The infinite wishes of togetherness
Not enough...
Words would never be enough.


  1. and words arent enough to admire such a lovely piece of poetry...i like this it is raw..unblemished..without a hint of cosmetics done to it..pure like evian water..or even purer..:)

  2. well said! Words are, ironically, not enough to portray in perfect vividness, a poet's imaginative horizon.
    Its the striving for the perfect description of the poet's thoughts that makes words count.... its like painting using words rather than colors
    And you achieve that while exploring that very idea. Beautiful,creative writing as always.


    1. Thank you so much Nilotpal for the valuable feedback... :)
      I feel, the deeper an emotion is, the more difficult it is to be captured in words. One might use a million words, still it wouldn't be anywhere close to what one'd like to express
