Busy Dhaka

Dhaka

A good life is always at ‘Home’
The life I had growing up.
Not that everything was pitch perfect but it was Home.
The comfy place of all.
Nothing was extravagant;
everyday faces, some good friends and a place you belonged.
A chaotic city that people mostly complain about,
Still reminds you of the best days you had.
‘Home’ might not be the exact one you wanted but eventually you’ll miss it.

Cape Jasmines Only

There was no wishlist,
Boring lectures were all gloomy without any twist.

Was waiting for a miracle as days were passing;
Nothing seemed special only numbers were adding to the monotonous aging.

One fine evening, a blissful wind blew me off the track, while passing closely…
Dragged me out of my misery and brightened mornings with cape jasmines only.

YOU

The way you loved yourself so biasedly
Wish I could do that to myself a little too…

Having an innocent face, you planned your way in like a sly fox without giving any invitation,
Wish I had a little bit of psychic intuition to predict your cruel intention…

Psychologically situations were drenching me, depression was only around;
Thought you were my true friend, battling in the same ground.

Who knew you were the one, who cunningly laid out blades, identical to grasses…
How did you forget all those kind sacrifices and emotional embraces?!

You tried to convince me that I’m the messed up one, efforts of mine was never good enough according to your observance;
Breaking me was your ultimate goal just to succeed on your mission of dominance.

Wasn’t a fool so you proved your determination in the toughest way possible, in the beginning of our riddle;
Gradually earned my trust only to crush me in the middle?!
Still remember your speech on being ’real’,
Used to admire how authentic you were and ideal!

Alas!

Yes, for you, you succeeded on your ill will!
But wait, that won’t last long….
Yes, go and give yourself a pat on the back, celebrate!
But wait, that didn’t last long….

Creativity’s Craving

If you’re a creative person worldly life will never satisfy you,
Only your creation and the perfection’s joy will tranquilize you.

The dimension from every aspect will challenge you,
And only you can rest it to peace through calming the cravings that’s in you.
