Shakhawat Tipu, Three unpublished poems

Around the love

Who you are at the point
dances in the world?
Same line or equal pain
is awakening in the circles!

Perimeter after a point
diameter or radius
the shadow goes away
as far away!

Look at that like falling in love
at numerous dust turning around!

Those sacrifices of love
that is also a point equal to the mind.

On the old wind
looking at day and night
looking at year after year
How’s the turn and turning around?

You are gravity, I’m a dust particle
Love is as round as the earth else!






Alone Sex

I’ve never seen a peacock’s leg
in the rainy season, the flock has blossomed
You didn’t understand what a pain
every turn was made jargon! 

Alone x in the forest, alone sex!
Before the confluence I saw a peacock
and she is dancing alone in the rain
with unbearable happiness!

As though calling peacocks now!
Feeling know, the organ dances out of touch
and like rain are chewing sweat and
You are lonely in the rain somewhere alone.






The soul sleeps

The moon is like a lightning rod
have been awake for centuries
waiting for your sleep.

People never sleep!
Sleep is only his soul
as alone as a tomb.

Some signs of sleep
frozen eyes stick to
overnight like a dream!

Sleep is like a prehistoric habit
and the eyes are colored of orbits!
