Limitless Lust - Poem by Aqeb Benazir Ibn Minar

Introduction: Limit itself has a limit of its own…

A walk, mile after mile
In quest for my lost soul,
I had forgotten how to smile
Everything felt out of control,
I fought too hard to be worthwhile
By that I got lost in my life’s hole

The regrets for mistakes I’ve made
It took me off the edge, way too far away;
Yet I tried again so hard to get off from that shade
But got caught up in my brutal fray,
The same song keeps playing with such a vicious rage,
I find myself down to my knees, nowhere to go - So I pray

A prayer to leave the worst and move onto more,
Come off this fantasy and onto reality, to be -
Closer to something I’ve been fighting for
The touch of the light cutting through the night, it rains down upon me
As I overcome the grief and believe, recovery lies ashore,
Only three steps remain, to be fixed and free.

A lesson of value I earned from my faults -
Never push yourself off the edge,
You’ll lose the only key to the vault
A life you never had to live – It too could forever be lost,
So stay confined within the limits of the limit
As it seems - Your control over lust, only can make you complete.

    yes indeed, but lust in love is ok, as long as it is controlled, but not controlled over. all the rest of the poem i love, as it has a great emotive feel! (Report)Reply

    MISTAKES ARE COMMITTED
    LESSONS ARE LEANED
    PRAYER IS USED

    THESE WORDS THAT REMAINED IN MY THOUGHTS FROM THIS POEM

    very true words...however it leaves a temptation at the end to touch lust to lose control. (Report)Reply

    I love how you approached the same meaning (search for soul and repeated mistakes along the way) in two different ways in the 1st and 2nd stanza and ended with an expression how a song plays repeating in our mind! ! just like it repeated in both stanzas!

    And It's such an amazing thing you do with your poems...somehow, someway you always manage to bring Almighty to your poetry and thanking him...Whatever the content may be, you bring Him as the one to help you write each piece. Such a great quality! the 3rd stanza blew me away...brilliantly done!
