Sankhajit Bhattacharjee Poem 64

Scientific Research Fellow in University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee


Quarrel is a part of a family:

his parents- misunderstanding and short temper control his potentiality.

A wife became the victim of a quarrel,

her nose was broken.

Red blood merged with red love.

Love received a blow-

on a snow-white gown a yellow tea spot.

Detergents and blues would fail forever to make it powdery white.

Yellowness has now become the tears of wife’s eyes,

the muscle-red heart of husband has turned yellow too!

Her son called a doctor-

stitches stopped bleeding:

within 7 days she got recovered.

No police case was filed-

as an accident is an accident…

Love still bleeds,

bleeds like a broken nose.

Three doctors- respect, belief and sacrifice

fail forever to cure.

Though the wife was wounded,

her husband’s right hand is now bleeding instead of her broken nose!
