Hard to handle…. Dreams

Dreams, desires, aspirations!
Shine like stars
Against a dark night sky.
Some, brighter than others.
Some twinkling to attract,
Some, almost consumed by the inky darkness,
Barely perceptible.
They attracted me and
I reached out,
To hold and own.
But like stars,
They glowed with fiery intensity
And intended to singe those
Who sought intimacy.
Dreams, aspirations, desires
Burnt me, with their heat,
As I reached out for them.

Born in the year 1968, my childhood was spent amidst the beautiful scenic landscape of a small town in India, Ranchi. Though an engineer by qualification, reading, writing and cooking are my passions. Another thing that I am passionate about is my country, India. As they say, a lifetime is probably not enough to explore the whole of India. Currently based in Kolkata, I can be reached at gdutta17@gmail.com.
