Sadiqullah Khan Poems

The great Unitarian
With names disgusting
Abhorred the command supreme
Unto his way till the end

The day when you were standing in front of me
And when I just because of sheer excitement
Of being close to you and having faced you
When suddenly I felt that some spirit has possessed me

A thousand flowers sprout in the bosom
The dreams of the years gone now subdued
In the wake of reality that descends
Like waves after waves on the shore

Until I have broken the form
Until madness has not prevailed
Until I am not drunk dead
Until my mind speaks the sense

Alone in this loneliness
Loved ones memories
Like possessions valuable
Out from the closets

The great poet the lover the mystic
Who wrote recipes for the broken hearts
Spake of the rubies jewels of Bagram
The curvaceous beauties from India

Hast thou seen my love many times
The morning dew or the dusk in the eve
For the lovers’ caravan to the tavern goes
Neither mosque nor temple

Her hands were holding the moon in firm grip
Like dreams she might not she knew one day
In dark of the night she will seek all life
Like God I peeped into the kitten's play

Ah the addiction of love
Like chocolate in despair
A fairy tale to the young
Like a cup of coffee made

The beloved’s street I avoided
In repentance of the sin in puritan desires
I held to the world my hands for alms
For songs for the beloveds of Solomon

The small girl was sold like a slave
The middle man cuddling her with a candy
The fat house wife suffered blues
From the riches in her neighbors

Some flowery speech
Was not unlike
Music from reed

Butterflies in pairs
Racing for highest flights
Birds on the stems now in trees
Music of silence some sweet songs

From freedom
To security

The city of dreams
In conspiracy with nature
Too long indulgence
When it lay bare


From nothing to being
And from being to nothing
Long way
The question of if

The transcendental value
Put upon the word crazed
Otherwise the word insane
Her sounds not commonly intelligible

My hands heal
My hands grow
I shall rise too
This murder will cause you

Guilt is not to be doubted Franz Kafka wrote
The human has been tied to the guilt of not having done
What said the God or his prophets what the society ordained
What the preachers say the first man was killed

Sadiqullah Khan Biography

Born in Wana, South Waziristan Agency, in the north west of Pakistan, belonging to Ahmed Zai Wazir tribe, a medical doctor by qualification, now in civil service, I loved poetry when I was in school. In later years I studied some Urdu and Pashto poets. The passion remained with me for quite a long time.I had been wrting poems but I have not published any. Universal Freedom and Love are my cherished values.I am incorrigible romantic, and love music. My influences are Jalaluddin Rumi, Hafiz sherazi, Umar Khayyam, Asadullah Khan Ghalib and Faiz Ahmed Faiz. Frederick Von Schiller and Shakespeare are my favourite western poets/authors. I like the poetry of Pablo Neruda. I am here to learn and off course express. I find Poem Hunter very useful for the budding poets and for those whose voices would never reach beyond themselves.)

The Best Poem Of Sadiqullah Khan

Devil Worship

The great Unitarian
With names disgusting
Abhorred the command supreme
Unto his way till the end
Devil is creator of evil
And evil of mind
Sin and wrongdoing
Who decides right and wrong
In hermit seminary and sanctuary
Personification indeed

He too is created
In the creation’s realm
Worship the devil
He shall bring
Happiness and may
Before the great scheme
What happened on earth

Tragedy is the bleeding Ultimate
Reality unto life though
Nothing wicked nor shameful
Goodness is all
Bad or not
Devil brings
Immense hope

Sadiqullah Khan Quotes

The poem is about comprehension of beauty. While looking for an apt image, I came across this and learned about Wabi-sabi. I am a Wabi-sabist partially. Actually I had seen an image of an empty worn out wooden chair on Gabriel Garcia Marquez's celebrated novel One hundred years of solitude, although the theme was isolation and endless waiting there, I like that. I am fascinated by still lonely images in exotic interior spaces.

Sometimes I feel that the historic references and the images I upload (later on when I have written my poems) undermine them.

There is no joy, I repeat no joy, than being able to write or create with grace and style. Nothing else fascinates than the grandeur of beautiful conversation and writing.

I suffer from both in reality. The second one is a constant companion. Unless you have both you cant be an artist.

The oppressed become aware of themselves when it becomes a threat to their carnal bodies and physical pain assails them. Otherwise they wait for God. Sadiqullah Khan Gilgit June 19,2015.
