Am I Insane - Poem by Tanzila Rehmat
You are here and I let you go
How can it happen? Maybe you know!
The dawn won't break without seeing your face
The night won't fall if my dreams don't trace!
I can never let my mind foresee
Life without you; will never ever be!
Water I don't care; air I don't need
This is my love you have to heed!
Unexpressed hope mocks me a fool
You never accepted but I have a fear to lose!
No, my heart won't permit; it will never allow
To be shut up and leave you for then and now!
Feeling so empty, feeling so low
You've made me restless and you don't know!
I want to hear you once again
Call me now and relieve the pain!
My silent love screams; oh it screeches piercing cries
I can't keep it quiet with the pace it picks the rise!
Borrow my heart for a second and let it beat
Sweetly painful cringes would come to meet!
I wish you could sense I wish you could feel
How the sore longings in my heart would heal!
Don't take me for granted don't break my heart
My body and soul... will get apart!
Try to be quiet for a second try not to say
I will be gone but my feelings will have their way!
They will reach your heart; they will pinch your soul
You'll be worried; miss the moments' bit and whole!
What is it that you're here but still I miss you
Can never it be called Love... that is true?
So deep is this loneliness, even in crowd
Am I insane; or you're so proud?
