Living wounds
Shakib Lohani
Translated by Ahmed Tahsin Shams


POETRY

Don't scratch where
your wounds live.

Inside mine: a fragile glass,
smashed into pieces---once in your hand,
now lying on your floor,
ignored, sympathetic.

Terrifyingly trembled, you,
to be tired to put on such weighty 'motions.
What's there to live on
your anxiety, illusion, and kindness?
The only need is a minute of love.
Only by pouring a paltry piece of adore,
you could have read each letters and commas
of the history painted on that red-blood shirt. 

Chat-chitter earth, designs of gigantic politics,
stream of blood of a destitute land---
beyond all these, you engulf me.
The body---burnt, nomadic,
looked after, with care, by the nurse. 
On your way back,
don't re-scratch
where those wounds live.

Infinite
Mashiat Mubasshira


Impatient to be boundless,
obsessed
             to explore the INFINITY...
lying beyond
                my
           closed
            doors.
I wish to set out
                         on a placid midnight,
and walk through silent roads,
glimmering
                 with peaceful yellow streetlights...
and sit on a secluded bench,
stare at a galaxy of stars...
Wounding up the night,
                                 till
                 the day               breaks.

Distant misty woods
            await my presence.
I want to rush
            through the lonely track...
that curls
           among
       tangled
           creepers.
And I wish to sail across seas
in my raft alone,
                          for days...
Yes, infinite
in my own pursuit of...

Mashiat Mubasshira is schooling
with Viqarunnisa Noon School & College
