Dynasty Of Arrogance
The night is taken by the rain.
Someone came out of the mirror
in my lone bedroom and said:
'I want to stay awake with you! '
It is dark outside and flooding insane.
The high ambition is down to the knee
And a dynasty of arrogance is diminished
like a straw going down the stream.
* Translated from original (Bengali) to English by RAZIA SULTANA
A question thundered out:
-'Who are you? '
Couldn't see him but replied, I
All on a sudden, he appeared
And disappeared, destroyed by himself!
I could manage to hear his last voice:
'For a long millenniums,
I had been waiting for none but you'.
