A Busy Street - Poem by Mohammad Akmal Nazir

Shameless, nude always invites
To outrage her modesty,
Smooth and grey
who would not be
The victim of her
charm,
Pleased with being invaded
Yet wishes them to lessen
their intensity,
In search of peace most blameless Yet always ready for retribution,
Like a great saint who never minds to take
The burden of their sin,
Bearing the rage of elements and lost in her silence,
Like a harlot baring her bosom to all,
Welcomes each new and old visitor,
But ah!
Has anyone ever tried to descend in her emotions?
Still looks all the time so fresh and so new.

    An interesting poem making good use of language.

    (Unsure about the droning, computerised reading that's on offer, though! It's not the fault of the writer, of course, but it certainly doesn't do his work justice..

    It Could Be That Of, I Mean It has A Nice Story Behind It, People Can Take The Coldness emotion's of any woman & Blame Guilty On Her So She Feels Guilty, But In My Eyes It Is Wrong To Blame Everything On A Woman As It Is A Woman Blameing Everything On A Man, I Truly Like The Story & Message Behind It, U Are A Top A Writer(Nice Work Mohammad Akmal Nazir) (Report)Reply

    Nicely done, a bit erratic - intentionally so I imagine.
    Good job.

    This is a powerful poem, though perhaps a little too abstract for me at some points. I like the comparison to a harlot. (Report)Reply

    hi,
    Thank you for your encouraging words...
    'A busy street' is it written on a real character? ? ?
    The writing is nice and veryexpressive....just my concern is that women may not like it.
