Prageeta Sharma's poems exhibit a narrative insistence and a drive to witness pursuits and obstacles in thematic terms: myth and/or the mundane. The speaker dwells, rather unhappily but always hopefully, in an inner world of fearfulness and an outer world of destruction.

Nothing gets past the narrator of these poems; all decoding fulfills her sense of prophecy.
