DRUNK IN BEAUTY

Full yearning for this can Possess all who run Caring not about the rain or sun Being each for the air, a fan   The running run into the running And I stand my ground Moving not, the competition blessing me with laughter And shushing the sound of pain   Indifferent audience watch Some shrugging […]

LOOKING BACK IN REGRET

DO MUSLIMS AND TRADITIONAL WIVES LACK HEARTS?

It would be a cliché if I say love embodies jealousy and that the nature of provocation determines its severity but I’ll say it anyway. The woman is different from the man physically but emotionally. I know we have most of the same features including jealousy. A man can drown himself in sorrow when he […]

MIRRORS OF ALL

If only we had many eyes To look into the mirrors of all beings We’ll see the flaws in our own And be infatuated by many While sympathising with others And smacking others out of their reveries If only we could live in the sky of one another With penetrable eyes through everything, We’d be […]
