Stagnant water bodies and unread Cave Songs

Our conscience becomes barred ponds
No rain as if dropped years of thousands
Is it a stream running dry?
To meet ocean a far cry
Water gets stagnated
Oxygen runs outdated
Fishes are dying almost
Aquatic plants turn blatant ghosts

Stagnant bubbling waters
With jaundice cent like geyser flying
To jump into deep blue Baikal
How long won't your stone heart
Hear the cracking song of my broken heart?
How long, Oh! My love,
Oh! My love queen with absolute power
Would you deny the love birds song?

Our hearts have been rendered
As if a locked Pyramid
Unexcavated under sands deep
Filled with bounties to peep
Lingering long yet
In the mystery starry night
Or are they unread cave songs
Revolt of a heart love lorne

 Poet is a teacher at Mirpur Bangla Higher Secondary School
