Poems by Asoke Kumar Mitra



Winter nights are without dreams
The night offered roses distilled from your blood

Cold wind, rain and storm under my skin
You want to come back through my veins

Your passion strained my heart
You play the anthem of salvation

In my heart beats where silences build
Unspoken gently with care moved inside

My dream anchored in your eyes
Slowly winter sets in, passionately wipe the shadow

Lilac blooms in broken temptations, deserted in tears
You wake up and sinking into despair

(C)Asoke Kumar Mitra, December 2018



You were singing
A song of past days
Which are no more

Wished to touch your lips
Wished to drink the song
In my silence,smiling distant nights

You stole with your glances
My loneliness
Memories of past as butterflies

You vanished with the heart beat
With the touch of my palm
Salty taste of tongue

Now the silence of centuries
Today’s song will be in memories…

(C) Asoke Kumar Mitra,December 31,2018,Kolkata,India



Wings of darkness left behind the shadow,
Angry memories stalk
The flesh of winter
You did not answer
A secret river of love

In your sweat a fragrance of musk
You surrendered to the night of passion
Unburied corpses of desire in January cold
Your fulfilment and mine

Whispers of stars, the laughter of moon
A silent wordless answer
Endless wintry drama
Nights remember you

our sorrows
In the intimacy of winter.
Moon is black tonight

Imprisoned between broken flowers
Memories burnt
