Mottakeenur Rehman



How many dreams does a prostitute have

How many unsleepy night does a poet have.

Who cries inside the core of heart?

None of them knows the proper answer of each other.

Therefore the poet goes to the side of prostitute

And openly shows the goldness of heart.....

Both of them cry for the whole night, 

The poet comes back on the same way.


Today a woman was sitting desperately.

I asked- why are you too downcast?


My favourite poet has not been coming for two days on this way.

I asked- what is the relation do you have with him?

How long have you known him?

She said-

The relationship with sad

And a mistake of youth

Therefore today the woman is desperated in mood

And she becomes a poet 

May be the poet of sadness.

    Sadness is a source of great poetry. Perhaps this was the lesson she was to learn from the encounter. Fine poem, M.R.

  • Michael Edwards

    I too like our style - a great read M

    I love the parallel usage. Even symbolically with the "two days" she did not see the poet. A lesson for me is that what appears to be not enough, is more than enough, to start going.

  • Yahchanan AbiyaH

    Even on the re-read still very compelling.
