Aman Saa (Assam, India)
Let me find my way.
Without being a synonym
There must be name for my name
As I have roamed many a road
As I have floated inside the retina of many a heart
Beside me many vendors have sold my old pain
And children have walked away with their delights
All the while I lay showcased with the same old night
In the palms of my dreams, still the same silent and infinite.
I walked all the circles and many times stumbled
over my own identity at different points
still there is no cage yet, not even of words
where the centre of love and life can be arrested.
Where the vastness of musical mysteries be opened.
This moment I left everything and this walk is long
You too are on your way
I am only looking for a nameless name
Let me be undefined, if you rest here.
We are friends of a moment
And this moment was born to disappear.
But we are companions beyond our shadows.
So when we are gone, opening the reins
of all these rules,
let them meet on an artful afternoon
or a drunk sunset
and collect the remnants of the recitation
of how we wrote and sang life.
An anonymous song just like the night
