Desire by Gopa Nayak

Desire by Gopa Nayak

Desire nurtured
Flows like an unbridled stream
Washing away all inhibitions
Embracing all entities
Satiating all fascinations
Desire chained
Beats like the mighty ocean
Tossing away all offerings
Turning down all with fury
Resenting all attractions
Desire unleashed
Erupts like a volcano
Destroying all livingness
Subsuming all extremities
Arresting all predictiveness
Desire, must you regale
and unleashed?

Gopa Nayak writes in both Odia and English on themes that vary from women’s role in society to theft in London suburb. She has recently come back to her home town of Bhubaneswar after her long sojourn of thirty years outside Odisha. She has a DPhil from the University of Oxford and is currently teaching English in Bhubaneswar.

  2. Awesome poetic expression of the universal quest that agitates the minds of man in all times. I would say,

    Haunted by desire we sway from shore to shore,
    When tired of its craze, we pray salvation restore!
