~ Sadia

Apki tang-dili ka andaaza yun hua,
Woh barhena chahat, chithde hua dil ..
Kal shikasta tha jo apke qadmon tale,
Sisak raha hai aaj bhi peband main!

O’ Miser you’re,
Bygone, never gone —
My naked love,
Heart once frayed,
Treaded upon,
By your velvety feet,
Meanly, then,
Are shabby, ragged,
Still, oh, still!

  1. I am intrigued by the meaning behind this poem...is she heartbroken by the miser? :) I always love trying to interpret your poetry.
