Hysteria - Poem by Akhtar Jawad

The hearts crawling on each other,
Were satisfied and content,
But time was jealous and could not see,
The two innocents in love only love.
It started snatching the beauty of life,
One by one everything was gone,
Emotions were gone,
Sentiments were gone,
Passions were gone,
Understanding was gone.

The cruel age,
Coated a layer on everything,
A layer that needs a name,
Distances were increased,
The beloved when turned,
In a living hysteria,
The act was reacted,
And one day the lover,
Broke two glasses,
Were it merely the glasses,
Or the hearts were broken.

Many days gone,
Time started reverting,
They didn’t talk each other,
They are sleeping in different bed rooms,
The nature intervened,
And gave wings to the hearts,
With a bitter smile,
Asked the hearts to fly,
And to go back,
In her lovely arms,
For an unending sleep,
And the dreams unseen,
Well in advance,
Before the cruel time,
Manages to snatch,
The beauty of love!

    In a short span of just one year, it is so laudable that you could compose over 400 beautiful poems on a variety of subjects! Let the ensuing years show even a bigger output! Wish you all the best! A great write on a relationship that was on the brink of collapse, but was saved at the right time! (Report) Reply
