#74 Love Undead

I was madly in love with you
I was, I am still, I will be,
Because you taught me to love.

Before, it was a word,
Now it holds meaning
The feelings will stay with me.

Feelings are but burned marks
Etched in the heart
The clock ticks, I still breathe.

Even if things have changed,
Values diminished, feelings blocked,
I would live with the pictures I have.

Even if all the leaves fall in autumn and dry,
The tree bears pain and carries on living for another day.

#73 The feeling of a question mark

When a story starts with two
It goes on for a few days
Some feelings match, some scatter,
Even after times of togetherness.
Two does not hold
Falls apart to one,
And another nameless stranger.

Time brings a lot of changes
Known to unknown,
And the distant stranger becomes close.
But the biggest power of time
No one knows what it will bring
Good or bad, love or a heartbreak.
It will only be known when the time comes
Bringing the stranger along.

Life changes a lot
Through storm, clouds, and the sun
Does not let you grow beyond.
Where mind wants peace, life takes tests
Two plus two never make four
All growth ends in myself,
A few strangers come to nudge.

I am also a stranger, to myself
I am an eclipse for you.
Even if feelings match, still we move far
Because this life is a walk alone
A stranger, moving from two to a growth,
Holding the hands of time.

#72 Beggar

Clouds fly by, too fast to catch
Where are you? It’s getting dark already.

The road just winds once at the corner
I cannot see any farther away than that.

Wind blows in some news
There’s so many new things happening.

I heard things are good for you.
You have taken chances and it felt nice.

These monologues play in my heart
Nothing ever comes out of them, just my hair fall.

This turned out the way you wished
I let it happen, I had no intention to stop.

There’s no trail, no story left behind
In one day all feelings were replaced.

Through the windows of the moving car
Everything moves back that you left behind.

There’s one home half broken,
Standing, waiting, for your arrival even if once.

I am your fool even when the clock stops
Although there’s no more glasses to pour and drink.

#69 Micro Poems

(i) Encounter
Life is full of surprises, how they had met
They found each other and found a hidden place.
A cup full on the table, a cup left empty
Two people face to face, two different tastes
One was there for the coffee, another for a face.
All over a cappuccino that sealed their fates,
Forever to love the different beings and their hearts.
*************

(ii) A dream too close
Where to our dreams go?
I might not come back even if it’s morning
But the world of dream is too good.
Will you still be with me while waking
Even if I am one far away in dreams.

(iii) Mamihlapinatapai
I sit, you sit too
One word, two words, a story flows.

(iv) Do I see you?
Why will you look at me so intensely with a desire to kill?
I will lose myself to those eyes, they speak.
Those kohled eyes, they hide,
So many tears and still feign a smile.
Can I move closer and kiss;
I don’t want to lose what there is.
Those kohled eyes, they dream
I wish to stay forever planted in them.

(v) The Reader
Take down one from the shelf
Open a page and read
You’ll find a spring evening hidden somewhere
Where the frost melted, but the fog stayed
Take a walk and you’ll find yourself lost
Pages are best keepers of all secret talks.
A feeling will overcome until the book is kept
The shelf holding one less, a book given
But you’ll be a book rich, a new story to tell.
*************

(vi) মেঘের সাথে
শীতের সন্ধ্যায় সূর্যের ওপাশে
সবকিছুর থেকে দূরে,
সময় কি আমাদের শেখাবে
আর কতদূর যাওয়া বাকি?
এক প্রান্ত ছেড়ে, সীমারেখা ঘেঁষে,
মনের মাঝে স্বপ্ন দেখতে দেখতে
চল হেঁটে যাই হাত ধরে।

#65 The Boy Walking in Time

Once upon a time, there was a boy
He walked on and on,
To reach a destination he never had.

Where was he going? He didn’t know.
What was the reason? Nothing kept him home.
How long would he walk? Who knows, it’s life.

Through the ups and downs, mist and rain,
The boy still walked on,
To a land unknown.

Five years ago, the boy met a woman
She hid behind a lot of mysteries, she was the unknown,
She was the Princess of the Clouds!

She asked where he was headed,
The boy couldn’t respond, he said he only walked
She smiled and said, I’ll walk along.

The boy stopped on his tracks,
Lost his desire to walk anymore,
He knew now he was home.

Now, five years later,
He comes back home one more time from another walk,
Will everything be the same?

It’s late night, travellers find rest in the sarai
The boy must walk on,
He has a place to reach tonight.

This time he knows his destination,
He knows the way and the reason,
Tonight the boy walks on, he must reach home.

Truly said, home is where heart is,
The boy realised, “my heart is in the East, buried far beneath,
Where Princess of the Clouds lives!”

#63 On the Roads (disclaimer: childishly and sleepily jotted down) 

One more night at an empty motel
The rooms all feel the same
The damp, the dim lights,
Lack the warmth that I had.

The coffee dates, the waffles
The rainy goodbye,
Will I ever forget what you did for me?
I will forget, only if I die.

Do you still look away and smile?
When you think of something funny
But cannot share it because you want to show,
That you are angry and serious you can be.

You know, you have the brightest smile
It is different, and special in this heart.
Made me feel better when I saw,
And you gave me a bit more hope.

Now that it’s dark and time to sleep,
I hope in our dreams we will meet.
Again a time I wish I find,
To hold your hands I hope I can.

#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.
