The Road Taken

The Road Taken short poem

(with apologises to Frost)
Maybe the road was long,
and perhaps the road was wrong;
but did it make you strong,
and will you write it a song?

Maybe the journey was hard,
perhaps your soul is scarred;
long as your heart’s unbarred,
I will walk into your yard.

Maybe the end’s not in sight,
yet your path ends in the night;
did you forge a sword of light,
teach one to carry it right?

Maybe you walked too fast,
and left everyone in the past;
the road up ahead is vast,
find a fellow traveler and make it last.

Saurin Desai’s first love led to a roaring affair that's ongoing now since nearly 30 years. At the innocent age of 8 he met a comic book that whacked him on the head (pun intended) and he fell heels-over-head, literally (pun not intended). But being commitment-phobic, he had a couple of dalliances: with engineering, jobs & businesses, before succumbing to the seduction of the writer's life and giving up everything to become lazier than he ever was. Through all of this he continued to rendezvous with poetry. And after one very, very, long pregnant pause, the poems that had owned him all these years recently agreed to stop possessing him and start haunting the world. And, here we are..."Solitude and Other Obsessions"

My Road To Anhedonia

Deeper as it dredged, I came empty That’s how dishonesty swept happiness out of me, My mood was left uneasy I was disturbed. I was overstimulated. While the sun beams at the window, the day has ended for me But
