Treasure Island

Abdul Wahab

The Legendary Untold

So many words have been spoken
Yet things remain unexpressed
So many words have been spoken
Yet things remain unheard.

Speaking is busy everywhere
Yet the untold entity is there.
He resides in the every corner of the heart
Of every man, like a blind black stone
He is a deaf and dumb walking down the road.
He is writhing in the secluded lane of the vein.
He is the flaming fire of the soul
As an Unextinguished burning coal.

No ventilation no language
Pent up feelings falling like foliage.
Is he a dead volcano or a pressure cooker?
A spark is needed from the bonfire
To burst to burn down every things every where.

He is alive and leads a life of legendary tragic hero
Along with the born despondent and void zero
The breast of untold bangs on his breast
Cruel sand brick stone walk and graze.
The heart has a bun on the oven
Moves hither and thither with unbearable strain
Dying a death of failure and pain.

    I really appreciate how you turn your phrases to express while saying nothing... It's like we can feel a wind pressure, to guide and open the mind, saying: think about it and say it yourself, with your own words! In the end I wasn't sure anymore of the context but I guess it's wanted... It's very inspiring! Thank you! (Report) Reply

    I love the rhythm, pace, metric and imagery of this poem as the poet describes the hard circumstances on The Legendary Untold...
    My favourite lines are these: ... He is the flaming fire of the soul/ As an unextinguished burning coal and the three last lines: The heart has a burn on the oven/ MOves hither and thither with unbearable strain/ Dying a death of failure and pain.
    Keep up writing and sharing with us...

    Yes, this is the picture now. Wait until he finds real self confidence. The whole picture will change. When he finds that everything is up to his belief and thoughts. If he dwells on problems, he gets, if he dwells on beauty, harmony, eventually his whole world will be changed to that. Wake up man! (Report) Reply

    A road to heart and sweet words yet untold
    Speaking is busy everywhere
    Yet the untold entity is there.
    He resides in the every corner of the heart
    Of every man, like a blind black stone
    He is a deaf and dumb walking down the road. (Report) Reply

    your poem is a story of life.... Original, unique and unrepeatable, I know many people who would say that it is written about are a philosopher and mystic poet for me because your poems exert inexplicable influence on human. thanks :) (Report) Reply
