Poetry

I, TOO, HAVE BEAUTY TOO

I, too, have beautiful thoughts, too,

But my introversion gets lost in you.

And while you, soothe,

I am horrored in the honor of losing you.

To imply no greater being be mine,

Is truthfully amusing –

But never singled by this circumventing mind’s cycling;

Never by the chants you gallantly peruse in my mending.

I, too, want your beauty for me, too,

But seems courters are popular

In their wealthy illusions.

Maybe therefore I am a lonesome, broken scholar,

Maybe therefore of you I shall make no more allusions.

Ali Ahmed
