Payal Parande


My Fellow Poet

In a black coal mine
You are the diamond in the rough
Shimmering as blazing as sun
You have power to make us blind
With your sheen

On the saddest day of the life
You are the miraculous joy
Vehement, frenzied and raving
You have power to make us cry
With a laugh so hard

In the abandoned entity
You are a pleasant friend
Amusing, affectionate and authentic
You have power
To make a veteran truth false

I hoped you'll stay long
But you may go because you wish to be so
But the time with you
Was crucial, candied and charming
And no matter how far we live
No matter how critical time we'll go through
I'll always miss you
I'll always miss you

Poet's Notes about The Poem

hello again,

this poem is for a fellow poet form this site 'Jahan Zeb'
he is from my neighbor country and i am not going to lie but since i was little i heard horrible things about India and Pakistan fight but when i started to talk with this person he made those all horrible things disappear and i am glad he did so and i am also very great full for his kind words to me he always makes me laugh he is a superb person...

but now he decided to leave this site and i really don't know the reason...but his poems are brilliant they are fabulous, fantastic and i don't want someone who is so good should go thinking his work is not appreciated cause i know it is....

    When love and friendship
    like a ship collide
    When waves
    the sea
    I see them never cry
    To my heart
    I ask it never why..........iip (Report) Reply

    *tearing streams of friendliness*
    *saltish feel of aloneness*
    *memories of ageless moments*
    *shores the lips in wearied contempt*
    *O dear friend! *
    I'll miss u,
    I'll miss u.

    Hope it is to your liking? A reflection of my love for your words. (Report) Reply

    Lovely. Payel, politicians made us think so. They kiss snake and the snake -charmer, at the same time. Above all, it's a nice piece regarding fellow feeling and sense of fraternity. A big salute to you Lil poetess. (Report) Reply

    Love no season knows nor clime
    Poets and artists are linked each to each by their feelings
    No boundaries does the heart know
    India or Pakistan-
    All are one
    Here at the threshold of words
    Doors are wide as the sea
    All are free to enter.
    Payal you are lovely.
    Your words and feelings too. (Report) Reply

    A poet from our language said about poets, Poets are skinless creature. That is true. they are moved easily. They feel pain for the wounds of others. They will weep for small and minor emotional situations. Thanks Payal. You poem shows you great. (Report) Reply

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;

The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
