Farrago

I have seen buring pyre
And embers glazing
I have seen the bone becoming the spike
And piercing the heart.
I have seen the asphyxiation
And turning of blue under the darkness
That strikes until you burst out.

Life is a sagacious dilemma
Where you at times get scars
All over your skin,
And flowers bloom from your cracks,
Scintillating the air with
Your sweet fragrance.
At times you walk on the hot coal
And burn in the heat until
Your skin wears off.
At times you get blown away in storm
And you land in the desolated island.
At times you cry, you wail you flak
Over the adamantine tales of past.
At times you wither away from everyone
And the people to vouch for,
Bite you and drink your blood.

Oh! these piled up parchments
In the graveyard of your mind
Holds no value.
/Ammunition for the frenzied mind/
Dispel the dark disarray
You choose to consume.
You are the bud,
Exude your fragrance
Uptil the horizon
To your people
That called you, “friend”,
To your people
Who doubted you
To the people,
Who were pulling your leg .
A sublime tryst awaits
In the garden where your smiles
Shall linger and the cuckoo
Will sing your name.

Thy shall clear the farrago
Of electricity and chemicals
making the grey matter blue.
With the prostration to the Most High
Things will just fall in place.
Just wait, till the clock ticks.
And remain steadfast on the path
Where lies the spectre of happiness.

  1. Very written Masha Allah.
    This one is my favourite
    “With the prostration to the Most High
    Things will just fall in place… remain steadfast on the path
    Where lies the spectre of happiness”

    Too good. I feel it’s a blessing of Allah to be able to write or say a few words for Him.

    Stay blessed.
