I can call it a ghazal if I like







You read it only when a spotlight shines on it,
and it’s the light itself that fades the lines on it

 

so should I fix this light or switch to pitch dark
and will you find the sense without clear signs on it?

 

nibs scratch the surface, silence leaves a deeper mark
so ink or blank? and now they both look fine on it

 

can’t say for sure which fades first, which stays fast
nuances its meaning and goes on, refines on it

 

who stands by me while I make the darkness last
no matter what the blank white light defines on it?

  1. i always felt silence stayed longer... does it make any sense?
    (I am pathetic at poetry , try really hard to think according to the poet through their lines. :P)
