Dear diary, dear friend


Knotted chains of words jiggled in my heart

The words I repeat in effusive soliloquies

Bathed in the resplendent fragrance of love

They pleaded and yearned to be free


 Effervescent tenderness streamed silently

His nearness muted all other leanings

I inspected with a meditative ardor

The mysteries of his inscrutable temper


Incandescent pearls gleamed on his countenance

His eyes mesmerised, a hypnosis set in

With each stolen glance, the magic deepened

Null and void lay my promise to self


And yet again, I tamed my fiery love

Shielded intently the sacred secret

Buried the mound of passion in silence

Untold wistful words lamented, yet again


Yet again, I unfasten them on your pages

Wounded, quivering words, find a release

Privy to my fettered thoughts and emotions

Dear diary, I treasure your calming presence


Just as I smile, scripting notes of freedom

Pangs of love return with a new zeal

Words doused in anguish, bereft of refuge

Find  shelter, yet again, in your kind pages.

  1. Speechless, totally in admiration of your work, Moonmoon Chowdhury. How well you’ve described the scandalous secrets a leaf of a naive lover’s diary hides from the glimpse of many mocking eyes. Keep penning such beautiful verse… a pleasure for our eyes.
