Waseem A Malla Poems
Piper Of The Holy Land: Kashmir
Far away in an unknown corner, God has carved with His own hand, Valleys that sink and mountains that do tower, Kashmir: a holy, spiritual and a sacred land;
The Cruel Mistress: Life
I think of you as a cruel mistress, Landed I'm in utter distress, This insanity, no wine can bring, This pain in my heart, no bee can sting,
The Feast Of Immortality...! ! !
The darkness stays guarding my house, During the blackest of the nights, Guarding the ruined empire of light, The light which now illuminates the path,
Candle & Moth: An English Ghazal
In the far away lands I saw its glare, The candle at which the moths do stare; There I sat with my mates to see- How,
The Flowers Of Your Love...! ! !
From the barren lands of my heart, Sere for years, in utter thirst, Do spring the flowers of your love. Those flowers of Daisy- Innocent,
The Special Girl
Every tick of the clock, every beat of my heart, Reminds me of your beauty, of your name, Of your smile, your fragrance, my sweetheart, I can do nothing, just exclaim.
I Hope: One Day
You will be mine forever, That all along the way, There will be blessings showered, And flowers blossoming, for me.
A Poor Single Mother...! ! !
Tonight she decorated another bed, She was the ornament of another night, Tonight some new arms embraced her, And she slept with another man.
... It Is: An English Ghazal
Look at my love, how grand it is, So green a crop, in Heart's land it is; Of all in existence, God thus spoke: He commands it to 'Be', and it is;
Every Night: A Ghazal
Every wound of heart extends a little deep every night, Pangs of death & of pain, hush up my sleep every night; Miles & miles lie ahead of me before I depart,
In My Dreams: A Ghazal
Dislike of Hypnos, perhaps, I provoke in my dreams, I wonder who keeps me awoke in my dreams; Dreams of love & of hatred keep me sleepless,
In My Eyes- A Ghazal
Her beauty settled a sight, pristine in my eyes, Dreams have turned, after long, green in my eyes; Numerous seas have set forth from my heart,
Journey Sans Destiny
I had set upon a journey, far and long, For years I travelled with my luck along; A journey, one of a thousand distances,
Nostalgia: Years Later
Years later, As I passed by your streets, I felt the same euphoria, That I had felt years ago,
The Cruel Mistress: Life
I think of you as a cruel mistress,
Landed I'm in utter distress,
This insanity, no wine can bring,
This pain in my heart, no bee can sting,
Those who think of you as a pleasure,
And call you a heavenly treasure,
Have never had me in their sight,
Only pain you inflict, and no delight…
