Priyam Goswami Choudhury
Encroached spaces in trespassed places blind
You in the childhood you are trying to find.
Can they see that stranger that turned up that day?
You have all grown up. You went away.
So many shadows haunt your senses when
Your new home does not smell like your old one.
But the rain comes home for you
And you are making new roads to walk on.
Because the old one is only a photograph where
The moment comes alive. The past is broken.
You have grown up. You must go away.
The rain is singing no songs. The streets have spoken.
