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

strengths

I need no gifts, no new words, No assurances you can’t give I need no tomorrow- No promises of no sorrow I don’t need you to be here- A warmth, arms to enfold And shoulders to rest, Or a thought, … 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

endurance in silence

Little did she know, the fire that she poured Burned and razed, heavens and hells galore; It never paused, it consumed and gnawed- Till ’twas all that lived, raged and breathed in him. N.B. Contrary to what we think (or, … Continue reading

long nights

as you slept lightly, on your side breathing softly, deeply next to me, I looked and looked, unbelieving incredulous, that this was really true; almost like I wished you into form after nights and more nights of imagining, dreaming (and … 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

খুব সাধারণ

(আরেকটা প্রেমের কবিতা) চায়ের কাপে অনর্গল, অবিশ্রান্ত আমার বকতে থাকা- চুপটি করে তোমার শোনাও নাকি এক রকম ভালোবাসা। দিনের শেষে বাড়ী ফেরার যখন তোমার খুব তাড়া বন্ধ দরজায় কি দিলাম তালা? সেটাও বুঝি সোহাগ করা? দোকান থেকে মিষ্টি খেয়ে, হঠাৎ খেয়ালে ফেরত … Continue reading
