Poetry 2018 Longlist, Bandana Kar


Stabbing does not trickle tears in me these days;

Nor when destiny throws me down to the hell;

It is your sudden turning away from me

That sautés my flesh in the heat of the blood.

What is/was my fault?

To cling to the pure breath that keeps me alive?

Yes, you are my pure breath, my oxygen, my elixir;

But it is that I am supposed to do when I was born as a human.

Everybody takes breath in and releases it;

But I inhale your murky love and exhale only mud;

You remain pure inside me

Holy like holy Bible, pure like my Heavenly Father!
