The Lies Of Today - Poem by Sadiqullah Khan

The day wanes on bitter sweet memories
Of yesterday
The crushing sense of loss
Yet the sun would set behind the trees
Time is striding in a straight direction
We measure that in days and nights

The lies of today
Would bear on the truths of yesterday
The space is getting smaller
Is breathing more difficult either
Add pauses and surprises
Would not I leave it to you
To go by the rhythm of your heart beat

Let's leave what is dispensable
Letting go is accepting the defeat
What we call indispensable
Is the dispensable indeed

Lure the heart to some new love
This nature is loosing the beauty it once had
