Silent Love

By: Mohammad Jashim Uddin

How long have we knocked each other?
Historians like Herodotus, Thucydides, and Ibn Rustah
Cannot complete writing the history of our love,
They might have failed since it’s longer than that of history you guessed.

Waters are enough to use as ink
As we used words after words exchanging feelings,
I not to like to delete old messages,
Because they are my memories,
Because they are silently killing me,
Because they are more powerful than the present.

‘Words never spoken, endless conversations
Through the eyes,
That’s the kind of love
That’s never said
But always tell…
That best thing about me,
Is you, is your warm, is your silent love.’


The poet is assistant professor of English at Northern University Bangladesh.
