Tell the Ghosts I’m Home

Author Name: Urmi Chakraborty | Format: Paperback | Genre : Poetry | Other Details

Tell the Ghosts I’m Home is a lyrical séance where the poet invokes all the ghosts she encounters in life. These apparitions don many forms in each poetic piece. They lurk as guilt in corners of the bedroom; they frighten through flashes of nostalgia; some whisper secrets from scars and some loom over the stanzas as wraiths of regret. While sometimes the reader might find themselves intoxicated in poetic drunkenness and hopelessly stuck in the narrow journey from the bed to the bathroom sink. Tell the Ghosts I'm Home beckons everyone to move with the poet like a ghost and embark on a journey that traverses the pendulum-palm trees, green cornfields, cobblestone streets, cafes and clementine graveyards. The poetry collection is a chiaroscuro of a series of long and difficult hauntings interspersed with paths of lights and magical hope. So, gather up your mettle and embark on a spectral reverie through these haunted pages!

Urmi Chakraborty

Urmi is a student of English Literature and has been writing since she can remember. For a long time, she had kept her poems concealed in diaries and scraps of paper everywhere but a couple of years back, after getting inspired by a friend, she started her own Instagram page (@poetrybyurmi) where she began posting her poetry and write-ups. Since then, she has been putting out her poems to showcase her emotions to the world. She mainly writes about the ebb and flow of life with an interplay of light and darkness. A lover of books, naps, tea and cats, you would mostly find her snuggled in her room reading, head banging to metal songs or planning to raid bookstores. She draws her inspiration mostly from Japanese authors, anime, Sylvia Plath, WB Yeats, Oscar Wilde- to name a few. She lives in Kolkata, India with her family, a small undisciplined bookshelf and a growing number of incomplete poems.
