Poetry And Pain - Poem by Khairul Ahsan

Poetry and pain,
Branches of the same tree,

The deeper the pain,
The brighter the poem,
The better the poet.

Even when the poet writes
About the happier scenes of life,
Sorrow lies buried, underneath.

    This never ending sorrow,
    This always pending sorrow,
    Haunts the poet, today,
    And maybe even more tomorrow.

    Never, a better, deeper understanding of what a poet feels, pain, poetry, love.
    Perfect and ever encompassing in its simplicity and far reaching beauty.
    A very touching Masterpiece.

    Like a mother going through pains before she gives birth to the baby, a poet has his deep layers of pain before he creates his flower of poetry.Thanks for sharing the lovely poem (Report) Reply
