I don’t know where you are
no, that would be a lie
oh, I’m sure I’m sure you’re there
here or anywhere
I’m not close to you
but you’re so dear to me
and that wouldn’t be fair

It’s not anymore the same since I talked to you
no, that would be a lie
‘cause I never talked to you
though I’ve always wanted to
I’m never there for you
but you’re always here with me
though it has been a while since you last dropped by

It makes me feel good to know you
no, that would be a lie
you don’t even know me
syntactically or semantically or personally
I can’t make you happy when you’re already laughing
but I can make you sad when you’re already crying
never in my life would I want to do that

Do you know how sick I am when I see you?
No, that would be a lie
I’ve never been able to see you
or meet you or hear from you
my mind is spelling your name with very big letters
sometimes they’re this big and sometimes they’re that big
but dear somewhere you would never know

A very beautiful piece.. I have no more to say but this, sincerely. It awed me. Literally thoughtful and figuratively full of emotions, carefully versed into a poem. So far this year, I'm yet to write one. My posts have been revolving around happenings in campus, this and that. But do keep it up, salute you! Someday the name will come visible in ur mind, as real as it can be. InsyaAllah.. :)

Igniz January 24, 2010 at 7:09 PM  

phyto hystrix: thank you very much for the comment. :)

Interesting... you've describe it perfectly, Igniz. Genius indeed! I love this poem 101%... something got to give. Keep up your humanity! ^_^

Igniz January 26, 2010 at 2:45 PM  

fakhrul anour: domou arigato neh, ayour-sama! heheheh. :P

Fakhrul 'Ayour' Anour January 26, 2010 at 5:41 PM  

Igniz: munjae-opsoh dong-saeng... ^_^. But this poem, the more I read the more I assume you're admiring someone... sort of love at first sight. A stranger yet not exactly a stranger... Hmmm... this remind me of a philosophy word by Jeraludin Rumi...

"The minute I heard my first love story, I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was. Lovers don't finally meet somewhere. They're in each other all along."

but in your case... might be in yourself forever & will never be reveal. Try to keep it blind forever huh? ^_^ Don't laaa...

Igniz January 26, 2010 at 10:10 PM  

fakhrul anour: this is just a poem. hehe. :P

Fakhrul 'Ayour' Anour January 30, 2010 at 12:28 AM  

Igniz... so you! ^_^
