Who’s there? – A Poem from Bengal

Suhina Biswasmajumdar, a poet from the land of Rabindranath Tagore shares her fresh poem.

Suhina Biswasmajumdar

Suhina Biswas- Sindh CourierA writer from Kolkata, Bengal and a life-long devotee of Swami Vivekananda, Suhina is against any discrimination. Two significant life-forces propel her – ‘love’ and ‘writing’. Suhina’s book ‘Tumi’ (you) and Songs of Silence (A Journey to Love), are collections of her poetic thoughts.

Who’s there?

Who’s there to be my friend?

If you wish be my foe and embrace

 

Distance brings the charming loneliness,

The lonely gazania stares at

If you could just feel her struggle to open up

If you could feel what my smile hides

 

If I could cry it would be a ocean

Every single drop of frozen tears of the earth creates….

With the twilight

An unfinished song or saga of the yester nights…

 

I don’t know why those tunes feel ashamed and break as diamonds,

 

It’s a different day

Unknown to you and me

Strange to others

 

Today Ravi Shankar would forget to play his strings

Picasso would search some Guernicas on the canvas

 

Now today is smiling

From a cringy page of a clumsy story the mermaid struggle to emerge

 

Perhaps it isn’t too late to look back

Too late to feel and love

Too late to live and chat

 

Like the heliconia

Tomorrow moves towards the light

From the golden womb of the fertile darkness

The ray of hope hails:

 It’s me

 

No one is there

No one is here

But me and me and me

I’m here

As you know you are always there for me!
