Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

You & I.

You and I are like stars in the sky; close, yet far apart. Like organs in a body where pumps one same heart, or veins beneath a skin supplying red to each part.

You and I are like notes in a melody, homogeneous colors in a beautiful piece of art. A verse and a lyric, a source and a spirit, tear in an eye, you are the reason why.

You and I are like birds in a flight, serene and quiet, an enchanting sight. We are pages of a book; differently typed; we are patterns of a cloth, circled and striped.

We are crests and troughs of a wave unique, seekers we are of the Great Mystique. Pleasant fragrances of flowers pink and blue, we are the two, tiny droplets of dew.

      Faiz Ahmed Faiz farmaty haen ke:

      Notorious is love, while lying in the heart unspoken…
      Coming into expression on the lips, it’s a mystery.

          It was Faraz, by the way, and not Ghalib.😀 And deep guftugu is the best way to escape the obvious. Like Ashfaq Ahmed says …….

  14. That’s beautiful….it really is..

    But lately I often wonder if such a level of conformity is possible? or may be it is only an idealistic perception devouring poetic minds….

    • See, that’s the thing about poetry. You can write what is, what is not, what never will be, or what you wish to see.
      In this one, for example, the theme isn’t just oneness. It is also about distances. The stars appear to be close, yet in real they’re distanced by millions of miles. The differently typed pages belong to the same book, but… they are differently typed! So the whole of it is contradictory, in a way. Not entirely, but yes.

      • You present an interesting argument,Young Caterpillar🙂

        April 21, 2014 at 11:09 pm

  15. Maria this was a succour to my soul dear.
    Just thought it was a prose when it turned out to be a poetry.
    So enchanting and magical.
    I suppose like sonnet, ballad, will evolve your own genre some day.
    Well then, think about naming it “MyriadMaria”🙂
    A Bliss!

      • Before you came, I had felt the bliss of writing.
        But after you, I have come to experience the joy of sharing my thoughts, being appreciated and being noticed.
        All thanks to u.

        April 11, 2014 at 10:43 am

        • Pamela! You’re too kind. ❤ I am blessed to know you. And mera waqai koi kamal nahi hae. It’s your fault you’re so good at writing things.😀 Plus it was you who found me, so shouldn’t I thank instead? ^_^
