Like a jigsaw puzzle,
the pieces of my life
are deranged,
hard to combine
into a picture,
with an empty slot;
the size of a heart.

Let me share yours,
as it fits the void,
but none of others.

Lest I’ll vainly shuffle
the shards of a faceless life.

  1. Nice one, Aadil! This poem is comparatively less “painful” than your regular ones, hehe.

    Can we expect a lighter, more feeling-happy type of masterpiece from you? 😀

  2. Can you ever have a faceless life? I guess never. Voids are important to give meaning like the spaces in the words. Don’t try to fill them with others. Life is beautiful like this. You are special in your own way.
    Btw, nice write….loved the way you carried the words.

  4. @nadia .. ‘comparatively less painful’ .. lol .. I surely will try to write a lighter, feeling-happy type if the circumstances allow me so .. 🙂
    Thanks for liking it though! 🙂

    @neilia .. “voids are important to give meaning like the spaces in the words” .. klassic!
    But, hasn’t this longing been incorporated in the clay we’re made from? .. It has been, I guess! .. Yet I second your thoughts that we ought to be content with what WE are.
    Thanks for your comments! 🙂

  5. Yep….I myself longed to fill these voids and keep on searching answers of questions which may fill my void. But just want to share some words of Paulo Coelho….
    “I am convinced now that a definitive answer will never be given to us in this life,
    but that, at the last, at the moment when we stand once more before the Creator,
    we will understand each opportunity that was offered to us.”
    I guess time will show itself!

    I think you are the idealist who has never experienced real life yet – an idealist always sees the harsh side of life first, being a realist – ready for the worst – but its a good practice – expect nothing good and maybe the future will shock you into complete happiness – Insha allah 🙂
