Underneath The Quagmires

The pair of black enchantments

that you have put on your face

have trapped many a stray gaze,

entered there in those realms of haze.

In their tangling embrace

I too have surrendered my fate,

sensing a panacean lake,

somewhere in your heart’s lap,

wherein lies the cure

of a life I had to endure

in a protracted past.

    I like your style Aadil. You can express a thought in a very nice and simple manner. I wish I too could write (poems) like that more often πŸ™‚

    Well done!

  3. @nadia .. tagged? .. is it something about the website tagged.com? ..
    @Ayesha .. I’m delighted .. you know what, I think the same whenever I read your wonderful prose … kaaaash I could write like you do πŸ™‚

  4. Regarding you being “tagged”, it just means that you have been invited to play along a fun meme. In this case, you are supposed to write down 7 weird facts about yourself. You may check my post “How Weird Are You?”

    It’s entirely upto you whether you would want to play along, or just ignore the tag πŸ™‚
