How Do I Forget Thee

Poem By Rahman Mostafiz

Why? Why? Is the cry in the night.
The howl of alone, far away.
Padding through the wilderness of night-smell.
Panting for air.
Screaming out passions in the midst of heavens edging towards abyss.

Deadly claws clicking on rock mountains.
Render them dead or possess them.
Never give them free.
Never to scamper in frost-light without the watchful eye...hateful eye...of alone.

Damp,
Dark,
Cave of fear.
Sheltered from wind by weeping walls.
Prisoner of tremble-cold blindness.

Battle and death become free in the wind.
Feel the night-smells.
Scream out the passions of alone, far away.

The Exile

Why? Why? Is the cry in the night.
The howl of alone, far away.
Padding through the wilderness of night-smell.
Panting for air.

Moon For Women

Soothing rays.
A subtle caress.

An elusive moon behind clouds of misconception

Shattered

Curled lips
A territorial snarl

Demon be gone...

Whiskers Whispers Whiskey

Whiskers trailing down my belly.

Whispers behind gleeful hands while passing through the halls.

Flutter By

A cry...As from the black wings of a moth
Picked up in the sticky fingers of a child.

Unstirred dust,

Here's To Man

Live and breath the flowers of the night.

Never seen.
No one to pick them.
