I will taint you ..

As you refuse

to own them —

the illegitimate words

that fertilized in the womb

of my mind,

(when your thoughts persuaded

my passion to produce

love poems)

I’ll throw them at your face,

I’ll taint you,

I’ll hand you the guilt

of their birth out of wedlock

if I’m ridiculed for their creation

this time again.

    1. Yes, you are right. One can’t stop the flow of reminiscences at times, even if one wants to. It was written out of a complex sort of a thought and I’m still not sure whether I conveyed it or not.

      Thanks for liking it, though🙂

    1. @Captureuniverse .. glad you got it but someone pointed out flaws and I tried to rephrase the thing. Hope it conveys my point better now🙂

      @Ayesha .. and the point of objection was termed the same ‘frequented my chest’ reference which was altered to give the poem a cohesive look🙂 Isn’t it strange how the same references could entice different reactions? Still I hope the edited version makes a better sense. What do you say?

      Thanks for liking the initial version, though🙂

  1. Assalamoalaikum,

    I think the words were nice Rora, though I think as usual though, that we are what we want us to be…

    I know sometimes pain and memories, happiness and thoughts seem to be involuntary, but nothing is uncontrollable..

    We choose to be steered by how we feel, what our feelings make us. We normally think it is loyal to have remembrances, but then, torturing oneself is not allowed…

    It is hard, but I think it’s better to leave everything behind, stop seeing people who do not like us, even if we like them and to keep ourselves happy and with our happiness, also our/ loved ones.

    I wish you happiness Rora.

    InshaAllah a visit home is on the horizon end of year for us I think, in addition to a bhabhi search for my brother, my search shall also keep you in mind, rora😛

    Pikhawar ke charta khu ba sok na sok wi kana chi staso “shairi” ba ye khwakha shi :p

    1. I beg to differ with statements that ‘We choose to be steered by how we feel, what our feelings make us. We normally think it is loyal to have remembrances, but then, torturing oneself is not allowed’ ..
      It is hard, but I think it’s better to leave everything behind, stop seeing people who do not like us, even if we like them and to keep ourselves happy and with our happiness, also our/ loved ones.

      Its not that easy to pick and choose what we want to feel and what not. We are humans, have feelings and are manipulated by them to a large extent. Yes, we can try to distract ourselves from the painful thoughts to a certain extent but can not wipe them out of our system thoroughly. To do that one has to isolate oneself from the society one dwells but that itself is a distressing thing.

      Now, I’m humbled by your generous offer that too wont bear fruits I’m afraid for mere poetry wont attract me many people😛
