For The Irresistible Girl
No sooner had I seen your beauty
Than I fallen in love with you-pretty,
You really deserve to take my bounty.
But, at that time, I wasn’t in a position
To say a word about my inner emotion.
Instead, pretending as if I am a deaf
Tried to ignore my inner big go off.
Because, I felt I couldn’t make you sway;
And I thought you wouldn’t say ‘okay! ’
Thus, I grew to be awfully shy
Though I couldn’t put any reason why
Except the irresistible look from your eye.
I know I just showed you only a hint
That could inform you about my defeat
Expecting that yourself would discover it
But your careless soul
Couldn’t reply to my call;
Your eyes and ears, though oppen
Couldn’t see and listen
To my suffering and groan.
Alas! But others saw an indication;
They listened to the unspoken whine.
Then, they appeared as if they bothered
And asked me: “What happened? ”
I told them that I felt but good
Yet, they insisted
To know what was really occurred.
I tried to put the truth out of sight
As they wouldn’t give me any result;
I preferred to veil my love
Fearing their mocking laugh.
No matter how sharp my silence was to wound me
I wouldn’t say it loud it to my enemy.
I buried my love in my heart forever.
Thinking: If you come back later,
You will smell my gash’s odor.
And if you mind, you’ll be my cure.
