Faiz Ahmed Faiz

(13 February 1911 - 20 November 1984 / Sialkot / British India)

Highway


A despondent highway is stretched,
its eyes set on the far horizon
On the cold dirt of its bosom,
its grayish beauty spread

As if some saddened woman
in her lonely abode, lost in thought.
In contemplation of union with her Beloved
every pore sore, limbs limp with exhaustion
