Inspired by my favourite couplet from Pakistani Urdu poet Mustafa Zaidi's Ghazal.


Mirror of my Soul

Ask my tears the truth of my core,
My apparent smile is not the mirror of my Soul.

Dive deep into my Ocean eyes,
Can you gauge my depth by standing on the Shore.

Nymphs of the sea within me are calm,
Stir me up with your passion, Me Amour!

Share with me the anguish of my heart,
And I will love you forever more...

Time has blurred the mirror of my heart
Wash it with tears of memories of yore...

Heart is as fragile as soul. feelings at times cannot be solve without the right words being spoken. Word is the key to the heart. Nice poem.
