Aminur Rahman, Bangladesh, 1966



Love and Other Poems

Love : 1

A lot of difficulty
everything seems aimless
a waste of time.

Without understanding
without giving
my heart is stiff
even though, all is clear.


Love : 2



With eyes closed
I make a diamond-choice
My heart is blissful
Though everything is lost



Love : 3



You love me quietly,
why then the abruptness
                in you?


I am a lowly poet,
a picture without colour

Love: 4


nightmares             the
one                         days
can                          pass
live                          memories
reasonably.             fail to
