My Valentine

May be I know what you wanted from me
May be I don’t

May be we were nice yesterday
May be we are no more

May be you loved me then
May be you still do

May be we can rekindle the old flame once again
May be the wind is pretty strong

May be we could forgive each other
As forgetting is impossibility

May be if you would have been there beside me
I would fight back one more time

May be you are happy
May be you are not

May be you miss me
As I always do

May be you can call me now
You know how much willing I am to go

Is there enough space darling
To accommodate me
In your world
I want to touch you again

Please hold my hand once again
Press it gently, let me cry
Darling, I want to get back to you
Dahling, I want to die

Ghetufool said…
ki kore katbe bolo bhai,
gari nei, thakar bhalo bari nei, sab theke boro katha, kono nari nei.
jibone prothombar mone holo briddho hoye gechi.
jani tomar bhalo keteche, tomader dekhe eersha korina, sudhu buke ektu byatha hoi.

"briddho" to botei. 30-something fossil. Kheye deye kono kaj nei.

For a person who HAS no "nari", you sure do write soppy stuff.

Neeway, wait till next year.

I didn't know you can write poetry also. A nice gentle touching piece. Am curious to know what finally happened. Did she allow you back in her life after your V'day poem. Post your post V'day happenings in the blog.
Ghetufool said…
yeah its better to remain unanswered.

read it carefully, you'll get the answer.

I read and re-read and read it again. Poetry is a mystery, just like Mona Lisa. If u are happy u feel the frame is happy and if u are sad so gets the frame. ur piece of poetry is no different. The answer may be there but I don't have the discerning brains to deciper teh same. it is like Da Vinci's code.

dear anon,
thanks for giving that much attention. i am overwhelmed.
did you mention da-vinci? feel like i am a genious.
anyway, it was never a poetry, i seriously dont think i can write one.
it was something that i wanted to express, thought of writing it in this style. didn't have the mood to write a verbose prose.
thanks thanks and thanks again.

All said and done my question remains unanswered. Please break the Code for the lesser mortals. Let thine know where the answers lie buried in thy poetry whcih is as fresh as a rose petal.
Ghetufool said…
my dear anon,
i am honoured that you gave so much importance to that piece.
it's a little secret of mine, that i don't want to make explicitly public.
please pardon me for not answering it. it's upto you to find out, if at all.
maybe i am a total failure in codifying the secret and it is leading somewhere else.
in any case, let's call it a day.
please don't feel cheated or insulted, i hope you continue visiting my blog. i am really really elated for the attention you gave me. that's the highest i have ever received. thanks buddy.

Let it rain hard

About a dozen years back, I started writing blog posts out of sheer boredom in office. The work was repetitive and the bosses were menacing. Not the fault of bosses as much as the systems put in place. It was a real-time world and you perish in seconds or become a hero. No, I was not a stock market trader, but close. I was perhaps in deep agony. I had left my family members, my root, my friends and my culture. Those years were the most important in my life, the early twenties. I was free for the first time. Free to do whatever I wanted to do. It was a lot of pent-up sexual energy really looking for an avenue to be released. I found my moksha in creativity, especially as my office colleagues started appreciating my writing, albeit with no hint of grammar in it. Slowly strangers came to my blog and I visited theirs and we became friends. And then I started connecting with people far away from my place, across oceans. With one I became friends for life – Ian Vincent Mulder. But that’s ano…

On Mithi

I became a father on 18 November, 2014. At that moment when fatherhood embraced me, perhaps I should have been elated, jumping up and down and doing all sort of activities that new fathers do, at least, that's what most sane people do. But nothing of that sort happened to me. When I heard my baby's voice, first like an angry cat and then a mild wail wafting across the operation theatre to the waiting area where we all were pacing up and down, the first thought that hit me was how was my wife? It was a C-section and she was partially unconscious. I should not have read Internet too much, for I was reading all sorts of horror stories, of mothers not waking up or recovering etc. I was petrified as I was not hearing my wife's voice. The doctors and sisters inside the operation theater must have been very busy with their other procedures. In fact, after bringing out the baby from the womb, they were busy closing the cut, I later got to know.
The realisation of becoming a fathe…

The Sculptor's Tale

(Note to readers ... mainly Ian, who is the only one who reads this blog >> i just finished writing this in office. didn't even re-read it after writing, forget editing. Expect a leaner/fatter and better written version, if my mood permits.)
Keep your hands busy, said my father every time I used to lean against the tree to catch my breath. Keep your hands busy you idiot, keep your hands busy, don’t let your head decide for you. Keep your hands busy, he would coax me to get working. And so I would again start chiselling the chunk of rock, along the lines my father, a master sculptor, had already outlined. But I would still dream with eyes wide open. When the hammer used to fall so gently yet firm on the chisel, I used to dream of the cities and the grand mansions. I was not good in sculpting, yet I wanted to be the greatest sculptor in this world. I wanted to be honoured by my king. I wanted to be the subject for which kings wage wars against each other. I was a dreamer, I …
