Samson And Delilah - Poem by Akhtar Jawad

Who played with you sweetheart?
Who betrayed you sweet heart?
If I played with anyone!
It’s me only me!
If I betrayed anyone!
It’s me only me!
You sued me in a court of love.
Imprisoned I am in a fort of love,
I never loved you,
But I can never hate you,
A soft corner for you,
Is still in my heart!
I never knew a woman,
If a failure in love,
can go up to this extant!
Nemesis has played it’s role,
My hairs are re-grown,
And I am now breaking the pillars,
neither castle nor the fort,
neither palace nor the prison,
neither love nor the hate,
neither wounds of your heart,
nor the pains of my body,
the fire of revenge will burn the both,
the Samson and the Delilah!
You too never knew,
A man can go up to this extent!

    Using in court of love is wonderful. Modern days imagery is also drawn wisely inside and this speaks many things with thought provoking attitude. Wonderful sharing....10 (Report) Reply
