You- The only competitor.

You-The only competitor. 

I am not a madman poet,
who shall compare thee with the sea.
I am not a lost lover,
who shall fare thee well with tears.
I am not an angry ghost,
who shall shout as thunder,disguised.
I am not a reigning soldier,
who shall protect thy heart in an armor of metal.

I am human, and nothing else,
I can love you,
only to my heart's capacity. 
To tell you otherwise like others,
is nothing but a lie.

I shall not compare you,
to the morning dews that smile.
I shall not compare you,
to the red flames that dance.
I shall not compare you,
to the smell of the wet Earth.
I shall not compare you,
to the mist that makes the dawn worth. 

I shall compare you,
only to yourself.. 
to your words, to your songs,
to your thoughts, to your mind,
to your heart, to your love,
to You-The only competitor.

  1. wah wah wah!
    Where was 'nilanjana the poet' hiding all these days?


  2. wonderful thought... however, i don't think many will think this way. pity

  3. @Twisted: what happened to your screen name and blog?! :O You've totally changed it!! Nice :)
    Though I hope it's cool if I still call you Twisted Elegance ;) Loved the name..
    And the poet has been out for QUITE a while! Just that you were a lil off blogger? ;)
    God,I am SO happy to finally see you on my page! Boy missed you!

    @Ramit : Eee :D

  4. @Rishi: Thank you so much :) Very kind of you!

  5. it was good 2 read...although cant relate to it...tats wat experiences are for :)

  6. ^ Lol! That's fine. Thank you anyway :)

  7. Wow.. wonderful.. its right out of someone's heart :)

  8. people found it hard to recognise my blog with the pen name. So I just thought I should make it easier for them. And as I have started writing reports on the blog, correct bylines are a must :)

    You can call me twisted anytime :)

  9. @Nil: BEAUTIFUL!!!!! I honestly think this is one of your best works. The rhyme scheme, the thought, the composition...all were excellent. The climax was the best part, and it really highlighted why each person should be regarded as unique and judged on nothing besides their own actions, rather than be compared to others. In fact, I loved the every stanza. To give such an honour to your competition...lucky them!
    Congratulations again on having written something so beautiful. I am so proud to have you as a friend.ALWAYS keep writing!

    Oh and before I forget, Happy Republic Day!
    (BTW, did I mention I hang around your blog a lot without commenting? That might explain my excitement at the blogger award.)

  10. @The west wind: Thanks darling :)Catch you on Gtalk!
