Debanjana Majumdar: Figures of Thought: Collegiate Voices across Spaces

I built a wall with sand

I built a wall with sand,
hid our love with impalpable curtain,
and carved your name with hand.
For these times are so uncertain
and love for once must go
to dust, leaving no sign behind.
Thousand mournings this morning and tomorrow;
but inamorato inamorata remain inextricably intertwined.
Beloved, speaketh not you love me
people love so long love last,
so long youth, beauty and money.
Is our clandestine love actually dwindling?
Our implacable love dwells in lust –
“Can love exist without lust lingering?”

Magic Moments

Take a sip of Magic Moments,
hold my hands each and every seconds,
step into the land of fairies
give me pansies and some berries.

See the golden deer run wild;
the weather’s pleasant, good and mild
a sip of raw Magic Moments
led us to the world of angels.

No paparazzi, no one to judge us;
step into the daylight, do a jazz,
Ball dance, Ballet and my white dress –
do not worry; it’s a state of grace.

We know no one, no one knows us;
a ubiquitous silence, no caste, no class,
no war, so far no means of treachery
this daydream’s dangerous but I know it’s worthy.

Take a sip of Magic Moments
fill your life with magical moments.
