Winter nights are without dreams
The night offered roses distilled from your blood
Cold wind, rain and storm under my skin
You want to comeback 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,2018,Kolkata ,India


Define your heart to me, you said
Someone else’s existence, against your own
A strange request, but I answered anyway
Perhaps you want to get to the bottom of me
Within your eyes lilac dance
No words from your golden tongue
A footprint of clay god and flying broken leaf
Within your eyes a raging sea...

A mad dragonfly in a wilderness
Your question, symphonies of the silence
Memories arrive as an epitaph
Close your eyes, feel the silence beneath the  skin

Your voice running into the wind
(C)ASOKE  KUMAR  MITRA,2018,Kolkata,India


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

Wished to touch your lips
Wished to drink the song
In my 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
