To Sydney Carton! ...Love-Incarnate! - Poem by Shahzia Batool
why renounced the life, dear Syd!
tell me for God's sake!
it was worthy
it was good...
you forsook it for HER sake...she pretty!
the golden-haired doll...
with a pair of blue eyes...
'nobody on earth cares for me '
why thought this? said you,
'i might be like a useless piece of furniture,
taken no notice of '...
why said this? but care, care, care!
it's hard to see
your dreamy eyes
filled with tears.
did you ever know
that you were born to live forever?
so please compose
your weary thoughts!
and do control this bleeding heart
which seldom shows itself...
why talk like one who died young?
O recklessly indifferent Man!
now pray tell me
why killed your soul?
why burnt yourself in flaming logs of cruel Love?
yet saw your road
through whirling wheels of goddess Fate;
you died for her
and held a holy shrine in hearts.
I wish your tender soul to know
those sea deep eyes do make this call...
Love conquers all...
Ref...A Tale Of Two Cities..by Dickens....sydney...one of the best bad men in all literature
