I deeply want to express my gratitude to Aquib Khan (https://aquibview.wordpress.com/) for helping me write this piece.
Aquib, thank you so much for empathizing and adding stanzas 2 and 3 to the poem. I admire the way you described and linked them beautifully to the first one.
I accept this contribution with a big smile on my face 🙂
Thanks a ton 🙂
These eyes envy you
They want to mimic you
The way you cry after thunder
They want to cry too
But they’re unable to
As tears dread their dryness
They’ve changed their course…
Want to stretch like your vast serenity
But there’s no pillar for me to stand
Want to absorb the ill tints
But there’s no filter I can find
Want to shine like glitters at night
Alas, no stars I can find
Want to have the glistening embellisher
But the moon keeps on missing from my sight
Can I be like you?
Or should I find the divine reason,
Behind your stretched smile?
