The Glorious Madness.

Like a cloud of fire

I soar a little higher

In the burning light

Of that sadistic sun.


Burning the golden lightening

In the broad of daylight.

He fears not-

Throwing the silver arrows and spheres

In the dawn- quite clear

The dusk, a little dear

He springs, trying to cut my wings

Amidst the shade of rainbows- I hide

Unwanted- unbidden

Not to shed a tear

But only to gather my very madness.

He knows not what I am

A cruel, blithe spirit

Rejoicing in the love that I bore

That from my lips would flow

And so like a lonely cloud of fire

I soar a little higher

Ignoring the fountain of pain

Basking in the glory of triumphant gain.

A woman questioning almost everything, trying to find answers through her's and your words. I am on an unending quest, walking the paths of unknown. I am walking and walking, may be too slow, but I am doing it. I am happy as long as I do not stop. I will be content to fall, to fly, to swim, to drown, only never to stop.

  1. Beautiful!! How did you think of this …im trying to imagine the creative process…wonderful absolutely!!
    Also following lines came to my mind too while reading it…not related but i guess you will like them. They are from a very famous urdu poem so you can search the rest if you like these:

    Tu Shaheen Hai, Parwaz Hai Kaam Tera,
    Tere Samne Asman Aur Bhi Hain.
    Issi Roz-o-Shab Mein Ulajh Kar Na Reh Ja,
    Ke Tere Zaman-o-Makan Aur Bhi Hai.

    (Shaheen=Eagle, parwaz=soar high in sky, roz-o-shab=day and night, zaman-o-makan= time and places)
