Gibberish - Poem by Salema Khatun

Before the invention of fire
Every thing was raw.
When emotions are on fire
The signs and symbols
Of the emotions came out
To invent the language.
Before the language the emotions
Were un conveyed and suppressed,
Coarse and raw.
When coloured emotions in words
Are failed by us to understand,
The poetry came into force to take birth.
If still the picture is hazy and unclear
And we don't able comprehend
Still it should not be termed gibberish
As it is the house of words
Signs and symbols, a canvas of…
A pack of charged emotions.

    This is just amazing. How emotions get reflected in different ways, has been put across so artistically and so succinctly. Loved the presentation. Thanks.

    A poem this well conceived and brilliantly expressed deserves multiple readings. Excellent write! What's gibberish to some is art to others. The title itself is well conceived.
    Should you have the time and inclination, please consider reading and commenting/rating some of my poetry. Thank you.

    A pack of charged emotions.
    Yes, poetry is that, released through words that charge other minds too.

    You conceived it in a right order so as a creator of the poem you know better but i think, consider a little about title, because the poem is complete and very logical...you have done a very good job in this poem. (Report) Reply
