Is there a pair of eyes that get tired of the beauty?

Or a pair that does not tear the salty sea?

Is there any eyes that do not search for you

Or everything that I missed in your history?

Summer rains quench the forest’s soul

Yet, my pair of eyes endure such soothing thirst

The trees, the twigs, the leaves the figs, the owl

No sway matches the heart that thrust

And yet, the beauty remains so far untouched

And my crippled desires stand purely crutched

My pair of eyes is the only one that works

And never to dry or become so parched

I agree with Misbah. However, poetry is a place for me to practice and nurture my mundane aesthetical capabilities. Whereas Jannah and the afterworld, I take it too seriously to harbour it within words of whims and fantasy :) Sincerely appreciate your comment. JajakAllah :)

All worldly desires just ends up on hope. The only promised thing is Jannah, the paradise. Start to love God,the only supreme power. Everything else will get back in the right place in this world and the hereafter.

Blessings and Peace
