Abdul Wahab


A Dance


The wind of hopes
Breaks into a storm
Upheaval, tumultuous
And over turns the dreams

A feast of failure
On the uneven floor
A flagrant display
Of vulgar dance of life

For the false promise
I wait
But the winds tell the tide
Perhaps on this road
no one will come and tread

    Beautiful Poem. Very true said in few lines..

    feast of failure
    On the uneven floor
    A flagrant display
    Of vulgar dance of life

    Combination of all makes the dance of life itself painful.... Loved reading it. Thanks for sharing with us. (Report) Reply

    A symbolic composition with a tinge of pessimism...no hope for someone to tread on the road. (Report) Reply
