For What Should I Speak


Uzma Sadaf

What should I say to you

What should I write to you

I have changed, very much changed

I have separated myself from all joys and all sorrows

I have changed very much.

I donít have any feelings of the cold nights of winter

I donít have any feelings of the long hot summer days

My body has become indifferent to the changing seasons

And this has happened only with the change

Of a glimpse of your eyes

This has changed all the seasons within me

The yellow leaves have fallen in the heavy snow

And I have been buried under these leaves

I donít know for what should I open my eyes

For what should I breathe

Every thing outside has changed altogether

What remainsÖ.. nothing

My hands are empty

There are the curved lines in them

These are speaking against me

There is only a torture left

Such as some body has put acid to my eyes

Drop by drop

As if some body has placed burning coal on my heart

But I cannot open my tongue

I am unable to understand anything

What should I say to you, only

That you were a season that passed away

It passed away like rains

And what should I say that I have also changed like you

That I have also become insensitive like you

Now the changing seasons do not affect me

Nothing would happen even if you come back now


Another season would pass

What should I say more.
