    Thoughts, words, and behaviour,
    in my language called: vichaar, vvani, and vartan...
    we have evil thoughts, many in fact but are still safe at least from the outside...
    we generally do not go as far as vartan/behaviour,
    but it is the speech/words/vaani that spoils things for us..

    What I could not quite convey still in these so many words,
    the poet has so briefly.
    well done dear poet.

    If words are veiled between us
    The cover just as thin as a silk, smooth
    Though if the silence close our mouths
    It still failed to erase each others from our minds
    When our heartbeats already entwined

    So true, Ali. So true. When the words stop and we reflect on what has been said is precisely the time we come to terms with meaning. I find that during conversations I often make assumptions about intentions that are simply not there. This verse goes to myfavourites. (Report)Reply
