A momentary lapse

You whispered the incantation
in the domes of my cobwebbed ears
and I woke in the earthen bed
as though from an afternoon nap.

Death was but a soothing escape
from the bane of your indifference–
the momentary lapse you had
in strumming the strings of my soul.

    1. Wa’laikumAssalam,

      za kha yem awo umeed laram che taso ba hum jorh awo khushala ye πŸ™‚

      Thanks for liking this crude effort. Yes, nothing is permanent but the change of themes here πŸ™‚

      Dera manana!

    why we always have feeling that Death is the only escape point???
    Why can’t we figure out the hole to let in the ray of light???
    Why there is always a tag of NO WAY on every door???

    By the way, you woke my thoughts once again… πŸ™‚

    1. Glad this post stimulated your philosophy πŸ™‚

      I wish I could answer any of the ‘whys’ you asked here, for I myself am caught in a maze of uncertainty.

        Try to solve the maze … My philosphies are going out of this world to Galaxies… On my way to explore my hideouts πŸ˜›

    2. These two verse reminded me of what Helen Keller once said =) It goes like, ‘Death is no more than passing from one room into another. But there’s a difference for me, you know. Because in that other room I shall be able to see.’

      Btw as far ‘escaping’ is concerned :p I would like both of you to give a read to my latest post *innocent smiley*

      1. Nice, thought provoking quote that was! Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚
        I’d surely read your blog but tell me who ‘both of us’ are? πŸ˜› Its me in my soliloquy, and no one else πŸ™‚

    1. yes, its a nice distraction hence its activation πŸ™‚
      gimme some ideas to write as well so that you dont find this place a boring and monotonous place when you come here, like i always do.

  2. And yesh! I saw this theme the moment it got available. And TOTALLY fallen in love for it =D Had I not been addicted to my current layout of my blog, I definitely had gone for it. It’s looking fabulous:)

  3. momentary lapse, wow, as usual amazingly well written.

    i was thinking to write on same lines, but i think my subject would be “Complete disorder” πŸ˜‰

    yeah this is one of the nicest theme, that’s why i enabled it as well πŸ˜›

    Hey bro…how r u ??? I hope everything is going fine at your end.. πŸ™‚

    No update on your blog??? Why ????????

    1. hey, well things in my mind have gone from bad to worse i’m afraid hence there’s nothing much to post on the blog.

      will write something good if you remember me in your prayers, that is πŸ™‚

        Things will go good bro…Once a very good friend of mine said…”agar sab acha nahi to sab bura bhi to nahi…hai na..?? ” πŸ™‚

        so Bro this is life and it’s never fairy tale for any…all have to face thier hindges of life once or the other in life time…..our will power is tested only when we come to face them and fight for our right rather giving up without struggle… πŸ™‚

        struggle and effort will take you to your destiny which might not be decided by you but Allah and trust me…Allah knows the best… πŸ™‚
