Shahzia Batool

(Pakistan)

The Medicinal Relief!


In a spark
of some unconscious imagination
Or in an intuitively telescoped montage
Of my deep vision
treading alone wretchedly
on the thorny pavements of your alienation
leading to your heart
the journey gets tough- -an infinity
during the course of which
the nights are long and tedious
the mornings bring no calm
such nights and mornings together
keep bruising the pain hidden
behind every hearty smile
in such moments of isolation
from the rest of the world,
and my own busy self
the medicinal relief I receive
by writing orphan poems with broken reeds
the feel of such writes is special to me
especially those which are written
with the eyes blurred
hands numb
heart dead
and mind not working at all…

    If you go on writing such good poems and most of us going on reading them, where is the scope for the real orphan poems? Your relief comes not from writing them alone. We are all here to supplement to your other needs and so a poet`s medicinal relief is a bliss of the highest kind.. Excellent rendering and rightly condensed thoughts have made your verse great. Here goes my 10 out of ten and from the midst of relief in mount, you please have one more smile.. (Report) Reply

    Yea, it is in moments of isolation that orphans of poems are born to us! After all the labour pain, once when we see the face of the new born, it is like the medicinal balm. We forget all the pain and rejoice! ! The intense sense of melancholy is paining... but an incredibly beautiful poem is born! ! (Report) Reply

    Very Fantastic poem indeed Shahzia..This poem carries an in depth meaning..I might have read as many as five time to grasp it. But each time, I came out with different messages.. First of all the poem is written with heart, whose world is far away from the world like orphan, secondly this poem is written by a person one wih eyes blurred, hands numb, heart dead, poor working of mind and these heartfelt poem, do fetch money for self medicinal relief..Really appreciate the way you presented it. Loved reading it..plus 10 (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
