You have grown
into me
you are part of me
your words are my words
your tones and gestures
my tones and gestures
the way you dress, is the way I dress
How do I separate
How do I escape from you now
without losing my self?

May 2008

( do you think I could compile all these and get a book published?? or are they fit for the waste paper basket?)

Dear Shruti,

This is a wonderful poem indeed, and perhaps you have found what it is to love in your life!

Maybe.. maybe not! Remember, the end of the poem talks about a need to separate and escape which seems very hard... it has suggestion of other things, than a pure love!

Dear Shruti,
As I told you, I will have to come back and do quite a few rereadings before I can make a few reasonably useful comments. I'll try to that over the weekend.
Right now, let me say that I enjoyed all the poems, and found some of thhem excellent.
There are a few which could have done with a little more polishing, but otherwise, overall great!
Yes I think you can easily manage a booklet puplication, but since the word in bookseller/publisher circles is that "Poetry books don't sell" you will have to approach a few dedicated publishers who look at quality and not at market rates-two good instances would be Pencraft and Writers Workshop. All the best, Ok?
Sindhu.
