The Sculpture Of Unfulfillness - Poem by Jyotishman Debnath

who cries at midnight
what comes out from the heart of the rock?

the thousand years of grief
comes out dropp by drop.

no one knows the story
of me..!

long ago, when tears watered the corpses
from the storage of past tales,

I was born
and see i have been here for thousand years
a rock
the sculpture of unfulfillness
with a story written in my heart.

a story that tells of people of broken heart
of people seeking one word 'life'.

I am just a rock
I have carried the burden of grief for years.
I cry at midnight
my heart screams one question...

'like this to everybody
love comes
death comes
why not life? '

I am waiting for another thousand!
