Last night

Suddenly I woke up from


My room was

on the verge of destruction;


It was filled with cans of worms….

I was taken aback to see

the pallbearers

sent by Fear & Death.

They wanted to get me into

the real hot water then….




I poured my words

on their bag

And those

Polite words were

something like ….

 “I am enjoying the music, the nectar

in my citadel”




Words created curiosity

and anger in their master;

At the crack

of  ‘dawn,

They came and asked ,

“You live in a hut

and speak of listening to music in a fort,

Where is your fort?”

And I put my hand on

My heart;

The greatest source of


 My hide!!!

    Excellent work…..

  7. Hi Rajdeep,
    I Liked the slow built up of music being the source of a heartbeat as much as the hide. The subtle dialogue ends in an unexpected answer.. good one

  8. purabi says:

    can my words be different?a reservoir of deep thought, feeling an understanding is what the poetry holds.

    good work!

  12. Gion Gion says:

    I had to google Samhdi. 😉 This seems a multi-layered poem.
    Endings – life, dreams, thoughts – hoping to maintained in essence? Not wishing to conform? Music as representing a spiritual / intellectual force for individual animation?
    A few minor changes suggested:
    anger in their master;
    music in a fort,
    Where is you fort? – “art thy” seems out of place with the language of the rest of the poem,

    oh..i simply loved the interpretation of music…this is really awesome…:)

  14. Sangeeta Mundhra says:

    Excellent composition and a deep spiritual meaning. Highly inspirational. As long as the music of hope, belief and confidence is alive in the innermost citadel – the heart, no one can put a person down by threatening to destroy the exterior of this citadel, the hide.
