Thanks For Not Loving Me …

Not getting
the reciprocal love
could also be
a blessing;

I can’t thank you much,
for, how would I’ve resisted
the pull of your quagmired
affection, had you shown some?
And I’d have lost
to you, all my worth;
the concern I owe
to a world dying
below the poverty line
of love.

Though its hard to tame
a fretful heart
craving to taste
what it gave.

Yet, the pain of
your separation
doesn’t kill, as such,
hence ..
I can’t thank you much …

It surely encourages ..

Its always encouraging to see one’s name in print against something and that too in a leading youth magazine like Us.

This time around, it helped me boast a bit, in front of an eternally unimpressed family members who surprisingly encouraged me too to continue with the ‘non-sense’ I write on and off, as they said. 😦

Poem Published

A random visit here made my day when it gave me the pleasure of a published poem against my name. So very thanx, the editors of US and all my kind visitors who encourage me to write and express. My heartfelt thanx to Kashkin, Nadeen, Ayesha, MZ, Goonga, Shobig, Quin, Nadia, Raheel, UTP and the buddies at desiwriters who’ve commented on and off on the stuff I present here and in a few other forums. Hope you will continue to be with me in this journey of self exploration and improvement.

Go well!
