[Poetry] Listen to its beats

[Poetry] Listen to its beats

By Seemi Asad

Listen to its beats.
Back and forth

how charmingly it beats
how beautifully it sings, creating its own notes and losing in its own voice.
How intense its loudness is
how strong its reverberations are

And when it is silent, hush like a dead
see how frightfully dejected it looks
as if all the miserable storms surrounded it

Little is its frame easy enough to hold
squeeze and crush
yet it holds all the wildest dreams
unimaginable imaginations
fountains of emotions

The heart,
king in its own realm
the nightingale among its own clan
only unfailing companion one can have
