After this one

Is there a heaven? Where I can find you again? An afterlife? With redefined rules, renewed ties? For you, I will believe, I will try- To chance tomorrow, rearrange my life; For if it is not now, it is not … Continue reading

ইতি

এমন একটা গল্প আছে, তোমার জীবনেও অল্প বয়সের খেলার মত, কিংবা মতিভ্রম| আমি চললাম, এই কথাটা তোমাকে গুছিয়ে বলতে চাই, যদি পারি, চেনা আঘাতটা বেদনা নয়, মুক্তি হয়ে যায়| তাই খাতা-কলম হাতে বসেছি, তোমায় চিঠি লিখব বলে- এমন চিঠি, যার … Continue reading

খবর

কোথায় কোথায় খুঁজেছি তোমায়; আনাচে-কানাচে, কোনায়-কোনায়- এ-ঘর থেকে ছুটে ও-ঘর করলাম, ধুধু করে মন, গেলে তুমি কোথায়! এখন-ওখান, সব-খান দেখলাম- শুধু পকেট-টাই দেখিনি, হায়! মেসেজ করেছ যে কেটে পড়েছ; ‘দেখি, যদি কাল দেখা হয়।’

Catharsis XIX: I am NOT a klutz!

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

The Morning After: Election Night 2016

For the two friends I didn’t have anymore…

I found so many… All there, waiting, just out of sight, For me to wake from my slumber Of numbness, indecision and slights- Faithful and strong, Humane and real; Of honesty and valor Of loyalty and love. I have always … Continue reading
