Abdul Wahab

>Secrets Poem by Abdul Wahab

Unshared secrets
Kept in some where

in some unknown vault
are very sad

Lack of light
They are dying in the dark

They wanted
To be born

To breathe
Like you and me

but we were afraid
of the truth

if you would reveal yours
and I reveal mine

it could have been
a drop of rain

it could have been
a zigzag stream

I could have my bath
You could satiate your thirst

The rain could have
Mingled with the stream

but we did not have the courage
to battle out

you took your way
and I took mine

you look back
I look back too

Possibly thinking
We could have been a little bold
Open a little bit

Our mind
And our four lips

But time is our glorious friend
Life is our friendly road

Perhaps destiny will help
us to meet again

and I swear this time ……

your thousand buds
would bloom in flowers

and mine would be
thousand butter flies

to give birth
and to set free

all the secrets
to take breathe in the air freely..

    Our secrets are hidden in us and it always needs an other person to let them bloom and there are thousands hidden in us who need to breathe the fragrance of our neighbors too (Report) Reply

    this is an elegant write. Oh those secrets of life. Sometimes they must remain forever. Tucked away yes, never to be revealed so true. Tis is one reason poets love similies, and metaphors, and personification. We are at liberty to write as we please. I love this one. Excellent (Report) Reply
