A Poem by Madhuchhanda Karmaker

Platonic Love......

Lazing at the spoils of life
Tugged between regrets of
Lost yesterdays and
Sky scraped tomorrows
Few drops of coffee
Drifts from cup to lips
Covering the blanket with fear
Lest the weakness of human flesh
Is revealed
The morning fog runs in the street
Selling stolen dreams to Plato
Alluring him to repent
For not getting drenched
In the rains
When heaven cried
As sheets turn wet
Taunts memory
Forgetting to remind season
The reason that made
The flowers go dry
Silently Plato prays
As the poisoned republic sigh…
