Let Me Take a Sip by Aamir Abdullah



Let me take a sip

From my coffee mug

So, you are here

To discover, to re_discover

Your eyes and your lips

And your whole golden body

No, you are not

A mathematical question

Can't be solved

By supposing

The value of a variable

You are neither a line segment

Nor an arc

Circle you are not....but

Have arcs and circles and lines within

Let me take a sip

From my coffee mug

So, you are here

To discover to re_discover

Your eyes and lips

And your whole golden body

You said......as you said

In someone else's grave

You were buried

And on someone else's place

You were burnt

And the mummy,people think yours

Is not yours

And you are ready to return

All the prayers of mercy and forgiveness

For what you want to return all the prayers

For what....?

Oh, yes to discover to re_discover

Your eyes and lips

And your whole golden body

Let me take a sip

From my coffee mug

And let me remember

Where I had hid the stuff

Where.......?

May be with my childhood dreams

Or with a mesmerizing

Fragrance of my youth

Or with old(not old yet)

Memories of a platonic love

Where......?

Probably there

Where all my loved ones sleep

But not..........today

Yes today

Just before you arrived

Your eyes and your lips

And your whole golden body

Dissolved I

Into my coffee mug

Let me take the last sip

From my coffee mug!!!!!!
