Let me drop the last chapter

by Partha Sarkar

 

Gone are the days

Along with rosy wings.

It is night along with nightmare

And the last train yet to catch to escape the peril

And to go to sweet dreams.

So, I am at the terminus station.

So, let me drop the last chapter of sadness

Until the train comes.

At least, I have to reach home along with the fragrance of tonight

To meet tomorrow

As tomorrow is still living

As tomorrow never does die.

 

Why shall I commit suicide tonight?

 

Though the days are gone

 

But tomorrow is there. 

 

Partha Sarkar is a resident of Ichapur, a small town of the province West Bengal of India. He is a graduate who writes poems that are inspired by the late Sankar.

Sarkar and his friends (especially Deb kumar Khan) protest against social injustice and crimes against nature. His poems have been in different magazines, both in Bangla and in English.

Bernice Holtzman’s paintings and collages have appeared in shows at various venues in Manhattan, including the Back Fence in Greenwich Village, the Producer’s Club, the Black Door Gallery on W. 26th St., and one other place she can’t remember, but it was in a basement, and she was well received. She is the Assistant Art Director for Yellow Mama.
