Wanderlust

Poem By Omar Ali Sabar

When plundering hearts' desires
drown the reasoning mind
through marshland mires
that boat I'll find
Sail I shall to
the seas open arms
moonlight skies
and starlight charms
your breath in pulls
it into motion
a witness to
my hearts devotion
Will I reach that
realm oh so dreamed?
where you shalst be
crowned 'my queen'
Is there love
like this ever seen?
so clasped, so grasped
those unbreakable seams
two hearts joined with
the sounds of thunder
not even explosions
cleft them asunder
For I know
I will have found thee
by the light at the shoreline
I've longed to see




For someone very special, beyond the oceans, amongst the stars

A beautifully worded piece of verse Omar, well done, Andrew
Dear, ''Wander-Lust' is a mater piece. i don't know whether you had read any romantic poet from english literature. Sir, i feel the urge to yield oneself to the dreams of a union with beloved. It is as lovely as it needs to be on UNION. I would bit exaggerate to say - as some of people may object to my view point- that yearning is much better than what should be enjoyable in union. The true love is bit inconcievable. So, the true manifestations of dream.I feel, we have much amount of our energies invested in dreams. so, we must not bet it with union. However, Ishaque Samejo calls it - Rolak ji Diary (The diary of a wanderer) - as what you call as Wander Lust. Sir, Heard melodies are sweeter, those unheard are sweetest. [Keats] So, waiting for much more sweet thoughts.

Flags Or Rags?

Standing in abyss with two rags to my wrists
No scores settled with empty clenched fists
In this battle between 'the sense' and 'the rage'
The crescent and star and the colourful cage

Love Is Death

Just because I tell you that I love you
Doesn't mean that you have to love me too
Even if i'm the first to say these words to you
Don't be compelled to say them too

High School Slinger

She was a high school slinger
Six times winner. She's the

She'd rub against your shoulder

The Killer Gaze

That glaring gaze that turns
the grey to black, water to muck
drops my tray, spills my milk,
