If My Voice Is Not Reaching You

by Afzal Ahmed Syed (translated by Musharraf Ali Farooqi)

If my voice is not reaching you
add to it the echo —
echo of ancient epics

And to that —
a princess

And to the princess — your beauty

And to your beauty —
a lover’s heart

And in the lover’s heart
a dagger

[via Poem-A-Day]
