#55 If You Tell Me Where

Who you are? Who you are?

Will I find it out this time?

I look for the obvious to happen
But we walk past, we never met,
How can we be so lost here, You and I.

The endless rain or not seeing you
I do not know which one hurts more,
Which one makes me feel more lonely! 

I know you stand there and look,
Why don’t you try to speak?
I wait for just one time.

If things were not so far,
If time was on our side,
We would have somewhere met, You and I.

The regrets of given away chances,
The puzzle pieces that did not fit,
It’s all meaningless, only to grief.

When you were in my place
Do you have those memories?
All breath gone,we sit apart, You and I.

Where can I find you?
In the moonlight your shadow is lost.

#54 In The Depths Within

Beyond where words reach,
There is a twist of narratives.

The look in her eyes
The sudden disbelief
When I uttered those lies
Words did not leave her mouth.

Things do not have to change,
Only the change remains unsaid.

What I want from you
I never say
And what you want from me
I haven’t realised it yet.

From the security of happiness
Into the depths of uneasiness it led.

#53 Childish lines for she is leaving 

When I sit alone,
The lights dim out
Memories float by
The mist still makes me cry.

It has been so long
Your flight left
A new world called
I kept waiting.

Have you ever thought
I am still,
There, somewhere,
In the pain of separation.

Last wish to see
Baby, forever goodbye
You chose the right thing
At the cost of one last kiss.

#52 Light a Lamp in the Sands

All has stopped with time
Only time moves along
With a mute storm.

Burried in the sands
Forgotten banks of our crawling river
Shall not come
In the lap of my heart.

Prayers shall be etched
In my heart for you
Only to memories you turn.

My hands trace back what is lost
In the flow of your long hair
The North Star is my only escape
I look into your eyes.

The playing wind will be the only one
To walk in the dreams that were, with me.

Light the lamp to find a way back,
Remember me when I was so close.

#51 Presence 

Imagine you are there!
But how does it matter?
Even if you stay or leave,
Nothing much changes.

If that is it, think
You are there, but your presence is unfelt.
Surrounded by a lot of voices, others
There is work, there is soul, there is authority above.

Does it change anything though?

Probably it does.
As long as the authority is established,
An invisible target shall stand in front.
I will stand by to aim my feelings
Wiping away staleness, wiping fear, losing all.

Let the heart lose today,
She will arrive there when the time is right.

#50 লিলুয়া বাতাস 

এক যে ছিল সে বসে, একা
চোখ ফিরিয়ে নিও না,
হাত ধরবে কি তার সূর্যাস্তের সময়?

দিন নেই রাত নেই
বসে বসে সে ভাবে পাবে কি তোমায়
পাগল সে তোমার তরে এখনও।

মায়া কাড়ে সব
জীবনের খোলস থাকে শুধু
ভেসে চলে আঁধারের যাত্রী কোন অজানায়!

তোমার ছবি থাকে তার মনে
ছায়ার ওপর ছায়া পড়ে অস্তিত্বের আড়ালে
কখনো কি ভেবেছ এই আকাশ শেষ কোথায়?

দূরে সরে যেতে যেতে
কাছেও আসা যায়
যদি মন চায়, কোনো এক সীমানায়!

আকাশ বাতাসে আশা গড়া
শহর প্রান্তর থেকে বেরিয়ে,
পৃথিবী ছেড়ে কোথায় লুকোতে?

চোখের পাতায় ছুয়ে দিলে
কাটেনি বিস্ময়
এ যে এক স্বপ্ন সত্যি হবার গল্প।

তারার আলোয় হারাবে তাকে
যেখানে ফেলে আসা,
সাগর পারে পায়ের ছাপের ভিড়ে।

শুকনো ফুল ঝরবে যখন
বুকের ভেতর জ্বলবে আগুন
সে শুধু তোমার অপেক্ষায়।

স্মৃতির সাথে মিশে যায় জীবন
দুফোঁটা জল আজ আর আসেনা
মেঘ শুধু আসে আর যায়, বৃষ্টি আনেনা।

সে বসে থাকে,
একা পথে খুঁজে ফেরা পুরোনো দিন
লিলুয়া বাতাস, মন পড়ে থাকে সেথায়।

#49 Blue Moon

Speak out for real
What you have been holding so far
Things need to change
From how you have survived all scars
Now live your life without fears.

The abuses,
They do not know how you suffer,
Won’t stop,
Even if you submit to their power.

Wake up
Look into the eyes that stare you down
Rise up
You have to break your chains.

When you come out
No one will stand by you and help
I know it’s not easy
But trust me things will be okay!

You never ever know
How much you can help yourself
More than others
It’s your life and it will stay with you.

Uncage yourself
No more things will hold you back
Make it happen
You need to break free only once.

Look above
There’s a silver lining up there
Future changes
Things do not remain the same.

Fly to the sky
When you wish to move to another world
Blue Moon,
There’s a floating palace waiting for you.

One step
Is all it takes to walk away
Welcome,
To yourself in the end.
