saadat tahir

(21011965 / Islamabad-Pakistan)

On side lines wait … 1403-2k13


Solitary lonesome days
bit by bit cast aside by measured waves
Life you private most of stargazers sight
Hold close to heart thoust
So much color and wind and healthy laugh
power and pelf and righteous staff
your smiles hid in me are tender sons
to raise to hold to cuddle and want
climb thine stalk like twirls of a plant
entwine in elusive full hearted bait
obscure by measure on side lines wait
your slick and charming body's gleam
with promise and linger of another realm
thine promise and pledge is but a farce
laying to waste and ravage and piteous sparse

    Feeling of lonesomeness runs through the whole poem. It ends in a pessimistic tone.
    'I fear me this — is Loneliness –
    The Maker of the soul
    Its Caverns and its Corridors
    Illuminate — or seal –' Emily Dickenson (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
