The death of word, verse and dream

The malaise sat into my senses and trickled exactly into the lacunae left by the departed dreams. Now I feel I’d shortly bid adieu to whatever remaining links I have with the world. I feel like I have been living whatever Mr. Moeen Nizami said in the words below;

Hamaray lafz

aaghaz e marasim may tau kuch ma’soom say logo’n ko

bayhad achay lagtay thay

na janay in may kya kya tha, buhut mashoor kun thay woh

magar woh lafz jhootay thay, unhay tauqeer kya milti.

Hamaray shaer aaghaz e marasim may tau kuch ma’soom say logo’n ko

bayhad achay lagtay thay

woh dil darya kay mauti thay, adab may ghair mamooli izafa thay

magar woh shaer khotay thay, inhay ta’seer kya milti.

Hamaray khawb, aaghaz e marasim may tau kuch ma’soom say logon ko

bayhad achay lagtay thay

magary woh khawb andhay thay

inhay ta’beer kya milti.

Yeh anjam e marasim kay marahil hai’n

shikast e lafz o shaer o khawb kay yeh dil garifta aayeenay dil kay muqabil hai’n

    1. Lemme try a rough translation of the poem ..

      My words
      were adored by a few innocent people
      in the early days of acquaintance.
      I don’t know what specialty they held,
      they were enchanting enough
      but they failed to achieve grandeur
      for they were untrue.

      My verses
      were admired by a few innocent people
      in the early days of acquaintance
      They were the pearls in the ocean of heart;
      were something extraordinary to add to literature
      but how could they be effective
      for they were false verses.

      My dreams
      were loved by a few innocent people
      in the early days of acquaintance.
      But they were blind dreams
      hence they couldn’t be molded
      into reality.

      Now these are the phases
      of the end of acquaintances
      as the heart wrenching mirrors
      of the loss of words, verses and dreams
      are standing right in front of my heart.
