[02] Acquitted Desire - Poem by Ashraful Musaddeq

A butterfly died of a heart attack
While you were laughing on the window
Catfish jumped on the bank of a tank
Cool sleeping dog shaking dreams like tail.

Trust blooms in front of summer
Melting heart flies over floating algae
Snail crossing prickle heat zone of back
Acquitted desire moves around bangle.

    A butterfly dies of a heart attack...Wow! That is poetic license and well wriiten prose. These fews lines show us how we live at times in a myopic way and in parallel worlds all at the same time.
    Good write.

    I'm just lost in the maze of metaphores.
    I fear my desire be accuited else I would seek help for rescue.

    Yeah, a poet should know using strange words to express an idea likes magic art., like you have done, words might be even conflicted, it is a kind of what so we called beautiful art. Good job, A. Musaddeq! (Report) Reply
