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

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

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

My Nose and I: The Battle

Claritin is my new companion in this still-new country that I have been in for the last few years. It becomes Allegra, during my more trying times, but it’s only the name that changes. Anti-histamines remain my best friend, no … Continue reading

"Take no prisoners"

Do you believe in the “divide and rule” adage in making friends? Is that what makes one more likable, worthy and dependable? The ability to whisper some harmless snippets of their “other” friends, putting in that little seed of doubt, … Continue reading
