Emptiness - Poem by Rafiqul Anowar

Is this a Forest, where I lost?
No bird is singing here,
No shadow of beasts
Even no howls of wolves in the darkness.
Alone, with the fear
But here's no ghost or evil to be feared.
Whom do I fear?
Here's the Giant tree of grey-
No leaves on branch, no sign of green
Blurred sun in the evening horizon
Cloudless sky -
Softness that forbidden over the rocky mountain.
Am I lost here?
Like a science fiction's alien planet?
But the moon is same here one,
Even the Sun or Sky, just turned into other tone.
I am out of sleep tonight,
When the night of dead will end?
Is time passing around me?
Or I am standing year and year, no move-no walk.
Am I feeling cold?
The Silence is the part of the nature
No light on the sunshine only the heat
Breeze is here but without motion, without whisper
Lightening without thunder,
Where I am,
The river that sucked all its water, no spider web
in the deep of the jungle –
Where none had come for long long time.
Smokes with no fire or smell nothing
No way to get out of it...
What I'm doing here?
Waiting for the rain over the far mountain,
on the shore of bleak ocean?
('Do I dream to disturb the universe? ')
Do I dream?
Of green from distant eye,
Or do I die
Alone, in this emptiness?
