The trick is in learning how to turn it off.Not watch the clock hand ticking,Nor check for messages to be readOr wait by the phone, willing it to ring!Good things take time, their own sweet time,Wait in your heart, in … Continue reading

Ghosted

My feet slipped a little; the heels slidIn the little nooks on the cobbled pathThe fresh snow quick and nimble,Covered my steps: I was never here!The passerby barely glanced back, With the merest of double-takesAlmost indiscernible to myopic eyesAlmost. Except … Continue reading

Catharsis XX: Changes!

I haven’t been cathartic in a while now, and a non-sappy, non-complaining, definitely non-melodramatic, less-attempt-to-rhyme, down-to-earth, realistic, therapeutic yet sarcastic post is long over due. Of course, I may not deliver on any of them or manage to get them … Continue reading

home

At the end of the long, tiring road, Waited for me, the wide, open arms. Hastily hidden salty tears mingled With glowing, spontaneous laughter, As your arms encircled and enveloped I close my eyes, peaceful; home, at last. N.B. It’s … Continue reading

Survivor

Through the mire, she dragged On her elbows and knees, Her battered, bruised self Bleeding, ragged and ravaged. Scathing words dealt blame, Told her, to dress better Entice and allure lesser- Be less human, less female. Cast down eyes cast … Continue reading

the fire of being

in moments of languish, and slowly bokeh lights hailing loss of sanity, and fading, waning life- suddenly derailed momentum, in a burst of fire that brings forth revival, in a quest for survival, the zeal flares incandescent, burning hot- show … Continue reading

খেয়ালী

একলা সন্ধ্যের বিষণ্ণতা, যেমন ভীড় মহলেও কাটে না তোমায় পাওয়ার উগ্র নেশা, আগুনেতেও পোড়ে না। তুমি যেমন আগন্তুক, অন্যকারুর কাছের লোক, আমিও তেমন খেলনা-পুতুল; দম-দেওয়া বিদূষক। তুমি যেমন সত্যি নও- জাদুবিদ্যায় চমৎকার আমিও তেমন মায়ার মত, ক্ষণস্থায়ী ভ্রান্তি তার। সূর্য … Continue reading

সাহসিকতা

তোমার সাথে একলা হাঁটা, ফেরার পথে, ক্লান্তি-ব্যাথা উপুড় করে তোমার কাছে, ঢেলে মন-খারাপের গল্প বলা; তুমি অল্প বলে থেমে যাও, তবু সাহস দেওয়া থামাও না, অন্য রাস্তায় যাওয়ার আগে, জাপটে ধর, ছাড়ো না। আমি কিন্তু অন্যমনা, জেদী, যে তোমার কথা … Continue reading

People are unkind. All of them. The best of them, the worst of them- every last one of them, given the slightest provocation, the merest leeway always end up being merciless and brutal. It’s that dratted, messed up, so-called human … Continue reading

His Princess

Sometimes I wish, that our eyes would talk Let them form their own words, express all’s worth. I wish there was a language for us, that we’d understand, Of imploring looks, overwhelmed heart and an open hand. Happiness is so hard, hard to write about … Continue reading
