Flame By A Fire Stick - Poem by Rafiqul Anowar

That was an old story –
As that was a life long ago before this living:
I showed you the way to go
And came back in the darkness with silence,
You didn’t look back - even said nothing and; -
My heart was full of emptiness.

Like a fire stick flamed in a moment - and burned-
On the dust of broken hulled ship at the port of my life; where
Stillness turned in to a violet sea. Golden hair of the cloud –
Faired the sky with the beauty of heliotrope.

It is my life now; so it is yours; Here it is the serenity
of human in this earth.
Days I loved you, like a lagoon I hold the place
Of a distant ocean in the darkness.

As I wanted – wanted so…. (With a deep breath)
Who felt no tear for a moment in Love!
Yet – I showed you the way to the stairs, and
I returned in the silence.
You won’t look back - even didn’t whisper -
And so, I asked nothing in that night.

Like a fire stick flamed in a moment - and burned -
On the dust of that broken ship:
I saw you to go toward the stairs,
And I came back with serenade in the darkness.
