I’ll Trade You Talent For Love

Sometimes it’s tough when we decide our fate before birth. Success seemed so much more salacious to me than love. How silly was I? For the rest of my life, the clapping of the audience…

Remember by Christina Georgina Rossetti

Remember | A Poem by Christina Georgina Rossetti

This poem describes the fear of Christina Georgina Rossetti, not from death but from the fact that her lover might not remember her after she is gone. But as the poem progresses, she accept that for a greater good, it would be better if he forgets her and live happily, rather than remember and be sad.

Ek kissa mera bhi

Har ankahee baat raaz nahi hoti Har kisi ki kahaani udaas nahi hoti Agar dil mil jaye toh jashn-e-ishq Magar dil toot jaye toh awaaz nahi hoti Sehete hain hum bhi par kehete kuchh nahi Aage badh chali zindagi dil toh hai waheen Toota toota sa poochhta hai hamsafar se apne Kaheen mujhe bhulaya toh nahi?

BETRAYAL

I loathed the flowers thatI’ve planted on the backyard. I did water on it every single day. I’ve cultivated it as soon as its roots sprouted. But why? Why did you bloom for someone else?

I Measure Every Grief I meet |Poem by Emily Dickinson

This is an extremely sad poem, much like the life of Emily Dickinson. A poem about her appraisal of the sadness and grief that she meets, and I bet she meets many. This poem just keeps getting sad until the last couple of paragraphs, where she reveals that other’s grief gives her comfort. It is others too, who have suffered. And some of the pains are like hers.

Not Waving But Drowning Stevie Smith

Not Waving But Drowning |Poem by Stevie Smith

This is an extremely sad and gloomy poem. A poem about a man who seems happy and full of life all the time. But inside he is dying. He gives signals about his state of mind, calling for help or maybe an ear who could hear. But either the world was deaf or ignorant or deaf during his life.

Fear no more the heat o’ the sun William Shakespeare

Fear no more the heat o’ the sun|A Song by William Shakespeare

This song is a very famous song from the play Cymbeline. It simply means that you need not really fear death. Death is inevitable. Each one of us, be it royalty or the common class, everyone eventually will “come to dust”. All that we do and all that we become will lose its existence one day. And we need not fear it.

Forgetfulness by billy collins

Forgetfulness | A Poem by Billy Collins

This is the poem about the limitations of the memory-feature of human brains. Due to these limitations, we tend to forget things. This poem lays down the whole logical sequence in which our brains start forgetting things.
This comes as a word of caution to all the writers desperately trying to create a masterpiece. No matter how beautiful your creation is, it will go down to oblivion, as we all will.

We wear the mask Paul Laurence Dunbar Poem

We Wear The Mask | Poem by Paul Laurence Dunbar

Its true that we all wear the masks for some reason. But, the poet here has a question that why are people always so interested in counting our feelings hidden behind the mask. Why can’t they just take us with our masks? There is a reason why we put this mask, why can’t everyone just let it be.

Annabel Lee Edgar Allan Poe

Annabel Lee | Poem by Edgar Allan Poe

In this poem, the speaker talks about his love that was long lost. Lost, because it was so strong that everyone at the ‘kingdom by the sea’ envied it. The speaker believes that this, even though they were just little kids, love between him and his Annabel Lee was stronger and deeper than the ones between the people older and wiser than them. That despite the physical distance no one can part their souls from each other. Their love was real love and no teenage crush.
