Soul V/S Body - Poem by Farah Ilyas

Lust of body, make thee blind.
Eyes of soul, Renovate to plants of Rappichines,
Nourishes by venom, Nurture for the sake of money ,
As, Buzzing bees flutter for honey,
Seek for cloak, forgotten the wearer,
True love, reliance & devotion for them is illicit bearer,
Body is just a item of clothing of soul,
Exertion whether superior or ghastly fall in that bowl.

    Another wonderful poem i truly enjoyed, it is as emotional and vividly described as the other! The rhymes here are stronger as well, yet the balance is a bit off making the lines a bit shaky... Do excuse me for my brute honesty, I really mean no offense at all, and I hope you would kindly criticize my poems as well because we all have lots to learn from each other! Thank you! ! : D (Report) Reply

    Body's beauty we all boast
    To soul's beauty I present a toast.

    Dear Poet,
    Thanx to God, your lines have made many bards contemplate profoundly on soul, body and even more into sensible maxims of life. wonderful. When absolute realities of man, nature, soul, God and lives here and there are manifested conspicuously, blessed hearts might stop looking for salvation, rather might engage in serving needy souls; in any dimension of needs. God Bless you to pen still wonderful verses for today and futurity to dine upon. cheers, Regards. Love.

    The soul and the body are one entity.
    Body can not exist by itself, soul gives
    life to the body. A nice write.

  • Unwritten Soul (6/17/2013 1:30:00 PM)

    Soul is the essence of life that makes body alives.... as if i give some of mine to the stone, sure it talks to you how the life as it is...and who you are is not the body made you, but how you define yourself, your soul..as soul made of emotion, mind and mystery ingredients..to refine life, as i told u..nice work_Unwritten Soul (Report) Reply

    you have a bold soul farah that's why you touched this matter, references have the relevance with your theme, and the way you capitalize the letters give the touch and the reminder of E.Dickinson... (Report) Reply
