Dr Kamran Haider Bukhari


You call yourself
My Soulmate
Did you ever try to count
The marks of the hidden misery
On my perverted soul-?

You say it all the time
That you are made for me
And me for you
Even you never peeped
Inside my soul
Your white blood never mingled
With mine tarnished one
You never dared to share
Your secret desires
Never manifested your true
Inner charisma
Which I felt the very first time
I touched you with my words
You expected me to follow
Your path of love
And I never learned to see
With anyone else’s eyes

How and why?
I should believe you
And you should believe me
You know that very well
That we don’t believe in each other
Still so proudly we decree
That we are the soulmates
Made for each other

This life of ours is nothing
But a journey
You and I are nothing
But virtual beings
Incidentally met while on board
And fated to reach
The final destination

So my so called Soulmate
I beg you
Please don’t talk about the soul
When you only look at the body
We’ll be permitted to be each other’s soul mates
When we would reach the final destination
Only if we didn’t change our itineraries
Under the influence of our humanly prudence
And restricted scope of vision

Comments about Soulmate by Dr Kamran Haider Bukhari

    Heart wrenching..

    How easy and trite the term Soulmate. If all could love from the inside out, True love wouldn't be so hard to find..
    Sad, yet beautifully written.

    very sad and a poignant one too
    very sad that your soulmate does not
    understand your kind and loving heart
    give her time dear and she will notice it
    whatever, dont be depressed and take
    all these as worries.
    a nice write dear Kamran

    sounds to me like you wanted the relationship to be more than it was
    I'm sorry that didn't happen for you
    people are not dependable when it comes to emotional needs
    I strive to not expect anything from anyone and occasionally there are pleasant surprises
    for all the other times I just try to find ways to not let the loneliness get me down

    Your dejection is justifiable, its no use admiring a body without getting familiar with the soul.....your anguish is heard aloud! ! ! !
    good write! !
