THE CASEMENT OF LIFE | SAIKAT GHOSH


1.
 
Dignity is an infatuation*
 
Evermore, for being well
Runway of life packs off
From unknown
 
Not a grief
But a flying recipe in fingertips
I’ve discovered all astonishments
In your breast
 
And then it will rain
By crossing all visible distances
We’ll write the epitaphs of success
 
 
 
2.
 
You have crushed the bow-breaking bet earlier
There was no blood in my kiss
 
If there is any capsule for love
I would like to draw a moisted sleep
Half the world and half the attic
Yield a new birth in your eyelids
 
 
 
3.
 
Every proposals are hidden
Alliance upholds mystical lesions
Coverts in solitary seed,
At a corner of a ruined city
That Chapman proffered me sunbeams
 
I tied the handkerchief
I touched the stone
And saturated body of words…
Here comes the pleasure
At least where the winter shriks
 
 
 
4.
 
If I paint dreams in your eyes
The crowd in front (of) me reduces
This crowd does not mean
Just a million (of) heads
Which I wish to count.
It’s like the earth has fallen down the hills
Sky dwells in your eyes
And the magic boats too!
 
I noticed for a long time
From the bottom of stairs
The sun is regenerated on that side of glass.
Whether anyone knows or not
When hills alight in your body
Poetry becomes fire…
 
 
 
5.
 
Wilfully, anguishes create a universe
throughout my sphere
The pai-graph of my existence get visible
‘round my cheeks,
I stick to multiply divisibility on unseasonable manner
 
Yet, I often went astray
When the birds return to harbor
Urban mist rushes on my side
 
And each sleep by any molecular bed
Comes with a new probability…
