In the clinking of coins
the whispers of love
are barely heard.

The glitter of gold
so aptly fades light
of the eyes, once endeared.

Sighting profits, little
losses of mere emotions
are never cared.

A naive still craves for
the love; devoured by
the giant beast of material.

    See – the naive like to BELIEVE in love – as a fantasy that cant come true – but is so good to take refuge in in times of real trouble – you can go into a world of fantasy and believe that there is love all around – like a meditation – Its like an inhaler that get your breath back when reality is trying to choke the life out of you 😛

  2. Asma jee .. its really an irony to consider ‘the feeling of love’ a worn out thing which is rendered worthless against the prevailing artificiality that we have adopted our lives into. In a pure human perspective love can be an integral part of our existence alongside our materialistic pursuits.
    I respect your take on the subject though! 🙂

    Believe me – I know – I was also a naive holding on to the fact that love should be given to all – no one wants it anymore – its a cut throat, selfish, mean, snatching, and clawing type society out there – so best to transfer all love to Allah and your own family – parents, kids, spouse(once you get one 😛 )

    …For the rest of the world, Aadil, just be a good person – go to work, do your job, and come back home – no need to get personal with anyone – be professional in all your dealings and you have no issues in life.

  5. What is love that can’t free itself and touch horizon and that always confine itself within range of giant beast of material. I love the words here. Such a simple thought and you have put in such powerful way. Just loved it!

  6. neilina .. I still believe love has the power to break the shackles of material and touch the horizon. The poem’s a sarcastic description of the situation we have in the world these days.
    Thanks for liking the poem! 🙂
