Fragments, a poem by Gopal Lahiri at



written by: Gopal Lahiri




The crescent moon is trapped
in a surgical anesthesia
whites of the eyes are frozen
in lost years, dead words
lock deep inside the moribund body.


Life is not there,
The walls echo differently
pale images sink and fade,
filling with the sea mist,
freeze on the silken doormat.


Romantic detours up in passion,
a token of teenage love
a new ease has set in,
breathing in each other’s skin
gather resonance.
