The waves have crashed upon the shore –

The salty air hums the song of terror

And announces the storm will knock on the door,

Thus, careful should be the bearer.

The bearer smiles at the delayed warning,

What has been done cannot be undone,

He watches the beautiful sky decorated by the thundering

Bolts and forgets the warmth of the sun.

The night is cold, dark, and uncertain,

But the storm inside rages a fearful calm,

The howling wind destroys the growing pain

For his heart has accepted his fate crushed in the giant’s palm.


Shreya Dutta is the Founder & Creative Head of StarWords India and the author of “Dance in the Rain”. She is an engineer by qualification and a writer by passion. Years ago, when little girls were jotting down their bucket list, Shreya was lost in her dreamland in which she was immortal. Dutta had started off writing at an early age because she believed that writing not only helped her to voice her opinion but also led her closer to immortality. With every write-up that gets published, Shreya believes that she gets embedded in the pages of history to inspire the youngsters who dream likewise. Writing is not just her passion; it is her way of taking the road less travelled.
