Reflection

Quaid-Uz-Zaman 1954 (Jamalpur)



i do not find you in yourself
nor do i find me in my ribbed cage.
your eyes with deceitful look
your face a false mirror...
the fire you create is bold but icy
and shadow  you sew  is massive but always uncomfortable,
love a daily utterance,merely a pretension
a fancy.
it does not matter how many likes and shares  do you get may it be in astronomical numbers
but believe it or not
love does not exist here as it had been existed before.
our soul does not play hide and seek
but rgisters every thing 'true or false.
