Whose Word - Poem by Sadiqullah Khan

Whose word is it
That has put
A whirl of sweet juices
In my ears
That has put
My eyes letting a tear
For a taste on my tongue
Whose word is it
That has set on fire
My imaginations of heaven
That has let the dance
In celestial form
And the many shapes
The lunatic’s explanation
Of the reality of things
When the real is replaced
By undefined lines
When colors no more follow
The rule of nature
I have broken
The form of reality
In my movements bizarre
I have discovered a form another
Beyond the apparent
My vision is piercing
Into a sea of distortions
In a form that would define
Reality for me
Beyond that grandiloquent appearance
Drop down the pain of anguish
Eloquent though your eyes are
I see
The reflection of myself
In the last moments
I heard thou saying
May god’s blessings be with me
I read it so
No books no angel ferocious
Shall know what I saw
When those lips
Asking for the tongue’s moisture
Yes yes
With brave endeavors
Come what it may
For those words
Still sing in my ears
