Somewhere in the last lining of the horizon

I saw your face hiding in the dark

I called you with all my energies and powers

But I think you were too far to give me your ears

And even your eyes


Somewhere on the black bed of sky

I saw you with the stars far from moon

I called you but did not even get a flinch from your side

You were seen filled with an uneven egotism and pride

Why was so, have you got any answers, I know… everything


Somewhere in the lyrics of the song

I heard you laughing out loud

I inclined to tweak your cheek but it just wiped out

Ended up with a pinch of my fore-finger and thumb

I longed I wished if you had stayed if you had come


Somewhere in the crowd I recognized your visage

Your invading look and your sensual lure

I tried to anticipate but winced at my decision I stopped

I stopped and waited if you would come

Stretching my hands to touch yours and it all vanished and disappeared


Somewhere in my heart I searched for you

You were seen slipped out of my soul and I searched time and again

I voiced my ache but you disappointed my woes

I gasped and gulped the pain that I was only I was alone

This is quite the painful rendition of love. It's like they or you are lost in the darkness, so the calling of a name is muted, because the distance is further. Calling their name with the last of your soul, but when their eyes and ears are not open for you, you feel like the ghost. And when the sky is black, and your stars are not holding hands, only the moon shines on the distance you are apart, and not the love itself. You try to touch them on the cheek, but it feels your touch is scraping invisible air instead. Now in the crowd you are waiting, and you feel the ghost while everyone is walking through you. But the one person you want to walk near you is in the opposite direction. Your heart is now a world map, and you are now searching for their aeroplane. It has lost flight in your soul, and never gave you a ticket, so you now fly alone. This is very powerful and haunting dearest. It's very ghostly because of being alone and in a way haunting that one person. This is a mighty brilliant poem you created, and it's beautiful in that haunting way. Your expression of love being apart is outstanding, and this is a stunning read dearest.

A really strong write, Rehmat. That desire that seems to conjure up some kind of ghost....that just disappears and deserts you. Well, that's what it said to me.
