Misunderstood Poem by Dr Kamran Haider Bukhari


Rating: 5.0

When I whisper your name
So serene and pure,
When I bow my mortal head
And kiss your divine feet,
When I sleep profoundly in your motherly lap
And fly to the unknown skies of tranquil joy;
When I adore you
And caress your dusky hair,
When I lick the barren soil
Of your fertile land,
When I wet your lips
With the tears of my naïve desire,
When my cheeks lie all over
Your naked breast:
I write a story of our eternal love
With my fragile tongue and smoky lips
On each pixel of your feverish skin,
When my tender words reach your patent heart,
Dig the burrows in your superficial mind
And pierce your shallow soul,
I receive an Alert:
Talk in a simple lingo!

very beautiful and strong write shah sahab, a poem which is so easy to understand with a lot of sweetness and a bit of bitterness....you've shown the true thoughts od a lover in this write, the thoughts with so much feelings...bravo, bravo and you say that 'still you are much beyond that I could compare myself with you', those are kind words you said for me instead i think im nothing as compare to you and many great poets here in PH....in thi poem you have put the heart on the palm of the hands which i think is not misunderstoodable, i might be wrong but i loved the flow of this remarkable poem...thanks for sharing this master piece 10+ and A++ added to my favs. rgds asif
