Sweet Mistake - Poem by Nazmul Haque

Let my heart not make that sweet mistake,
Let not now or ever.

In love, the heart sets on fire and the eye floats on sea,
In love, the heart becomes a furnace and the eye a fountain.

In love, you have to lose yourself,
You have to smile keeping you tears hidden.

In love you cannot but surrender your 'self',
In love, you have to barely show the weakest part within.


In love you can neither drowne nor reach to the shore,
In love, you can neither take in nor give up-
And keep standing in 'no man's land'.

In love you buy sorrow of lifetime for a moment's joy,
In love, you are hurt, but you cannot hurt,
In love, nothing of you is left to yours.

Let my heart not make that sweet mistake,
Let not now or ever.
