Who Told You?

Who told you that I am silent?

Haven’t you heard the melodies

Rolling on my unmoved lips

day and night without a break?

Who told you that I am stronger

Than a sturdy hard stone

You never touched my soul

That is as soft as tender feelings

Wet with the drizzle of love

And a well that oozes tears

And hides them as treasures

And blushes even at the

Touch of your flow of look

From the edges of your eyes

Who told you that I am still alive?

This is you who live in my body

I extinguished the moment I bid farewell,

to keep your world in tact I carry this burden for you.
