Sensitivity - Poem by Khairul Ahsan
Men and women seek to hide
Their weaknesses, their frailties
An inbuilt mechanism seeks to provide
An excuse for all their infirmities.
Men and women hide in the deep
Of their own sensitive mind,
Some secrets which they keep
And guard like sentinels of some kind.
Men and women crave for a touch
A delicate touch, soft, slim and smooth,
On their frail minds, if not so much
On their skin, at old age or at youth.
When their heart is touched by words
Or eyes that translate feelings into caresses,
Their spirit soars high in the sky like birds,
Yet they shrink when love offers its embraces.
