This poem is a response to Tayyeba Irum‘s pitch perfect poem: The Lost Ones.
is like the galaxies in a cosmos,
enriched of stars…
I am like a satellite
with lost orbit.
is like overwhelming rays of the star,
I am like an ice glacier
in cave blacken.
is like a silver shower from the moon
at the night’s darkest…
I here am like a pebble
hidden in foggiest.
is like a breeze chilling,
running wild and ruling…
I am like a flame in lantern,
flickering – dwindling.
is like a dream
worth always remembering…
I am one who has found
yet no place for resting.
is like a dew perching from above,
I am like a leaf separated from tree,
since last falling.
is like an only book worth reading,
time again when I’m sinking.
And yet, I’m…
in lost memory
of where I keep it.
– Dedicated to the love supreme and lovers invisible.

beautiful, as usual. I haven’t seen you on my wordpress in a while so it was nice seeing this post again ^_^
I just saw this! Thank you so much.
Your poem is absolutely beautiful. *-*
wow, beautiful words. I now assume whenever you speak, poetry comes out of your mouth !
Not sure about that, but there’s no denial in fact, that whenever you speak, sweet words come out of you… 🙂 Thank you.
