Lifelike(Less) Saga - Poem by Usman Hanif

look into your heart
you see something?
she aint the last wish
she aint the last resort
that you behold within...
you look at desires
you aint coming out of shell
Look at what you have;
not at what you want

Look into your heart
through the eyes
of a weakling...
of a dying wish
of brazen irony
of your own self;
you'd see a world
that's all yours
you're at peace here...
no matter you die or live
you are in your heaven
with no one to intrude
with no one to disrupt your peace
not ever she could enter there...
does she live here too? ? ?
then you aint here...

Look into your heart
through the dead memory
of your past
through the echoing laughters
that dissolve into you
with a sweet aromatic pain
that you own but you want to own
where want to reach and lie there
where something more than life exists...
is life everything?
is she life to you?
you are still outside
knocking at where you live! ! !
unaware of your presence
still responding to desires

Come out of your heart
now look inside your heart
through the eyes of yours
follow the gaze straight
until the gaze diverges
into a wide landscape
where water shimmers, sun gleams
filtering the light through mists
where keliedoscopic grass dance
where you live...
is she there again?
no she isnt there...
its place where you belong
not where you live...

you're heartless soul
follow my gaze
i'll show you my world
here i go leaping deap
into the cherished memories
we go both along without her...
remember we go alone
you see my world
where time stagnates and i flow
where life's still and i grow
where i am wish i am desire
where i aint the scapegoat
where i live one step ahead
like in wild; frolicking around...
i am the king of world
i rule my own world...
i live; i live in you...

you own a world so unknown
you made it; you made me
and now you find an escape
from yourself, from conscience
from life that you created
only for desire; not for what you have?

you own everything
still you are at a loss
your lifelike saga has to end
before you give it a start...
