The Paramour Moon And The Eunuch Nights Poem by Gayatri Phukan

The Paramour Moon And The Eunuch Nights

Rating: 4.9


On the full moon night
The moon puts on the red dress
The eunuch nights lie still like a log
The moon embraces a heartful of unbearable sorrow
Wearing the red dress
The moon turns into a rock
No one
Just no one understandsl
The pain of the heart of the moon
The hunger of the heart of the moon
The selfish eunuch nights
If I could even offer a heartful of love
Just tell me
After how many eunuch nights
The moon turns paramour
It's because of paramour moon
That the pet birds turns wild
The sorrow of the night of the birds
With the long vermilion marks between their parted hair
Gets accumulated
Transformed into ice.
The wild birds loiter in stranger's courtyard
The nests break like that
The game of make and break continues thus.
