Poems by Asoke Kumar Mitra


A Face

Hiding your face behind the blind
You laugh like a hyena
Goldwinged seagulls

Rain soaked dusk
Merging with the dust of time
And mud of memory

I plunge into you
Feel me, break me
Lay silently

Watching the sunset
My tongue grew numb
Blood in your lips

Lonely rain
Turned to
Hungry spring.


and now……

unbutton your fragrant dreams
unbutton your silence…..

the silence is no longer ours,
you smiled as the moon closed its eyes

last night the storm whispered your name in my blood

unbutton your silence…….

a night bird’s laughter echoing in an empty room
savage night of desire,

and now…..
two tired birds on the wings of darkness………lost for ever.
