empty spaces

Magdalene-Savoldo

When you read my verses
Read between the lines
Pay special attention to empty
Spaces separating each word

They hold the key
To what really is
Attune yourself
And you may hear

Sighs of unshed tears
Thrashing sobs of desires
Burning pyres of ambition
Unplumbed pools of love

When you read my verses
Read between the lines
Pay special attention to empty
Spaces separating each word

Rikt atirikt

Tum lafzon mein na ulajna
Unke darmeeyaan jo khaalipan hai
usey hii tvojo dena….
Siskiyaan sunaayee dengii tumhe

Mehfil ki shaan, jo roshan shama hai
Wo asl mein ek quaid bulbul hai
Jo roz jii jii kar martii hai
Aur roz mar mar kar jeetii hai

Tum lafzon mein na ulajna kabhi
Unke darmeeyaan jo khaalipan hai
usey hii tvojo dena…
.tum
Mehaj khaalipan ko tvojo denaa… tum
