Silenced Sculptures

Silenced Sculptures

A Poem by Najam Us Saher

 SILENCED SCULPTURES
Inanimate structures of stone,
Forever stranded left alone.
Standing for centuries so long,
Everyone ignores and gets along.
Two sculptures stood together, 
Stayed united in severe weather.
A boy stood admiring the girl,
Her blush, Oh! so easy to be seen;
Even when her skin is coloured pearl.
Lifeless they were, they started speaking,
To live a life, they started believing.
Passionately in love they always stayed,
Only for each other they were made.
Becoming lively, their hearts beat,
Being so close, they never met.
Their hearts spoke words of love,
They felt high, so above.
A day of winter came, 
When her place didn't remain the same.
She was separated from her lovers' gaze,
He spent months in a daze. 
Thunder were his shouts,
Their love was true, no doubt.
Rain drenched him over,
He regretted not being with her closer.
Tears were easy to be seen despite the rain,
His heart was unable to be healed from the tormenting pain.
She was the one who made him feel alive,
No one resembled her, none alike. 
A weeping angel he became,
His love for her he couldn't acclaim.
Better are statues with a loving heart,
Than the humans with a heart so hard.

Thank you very much. I am very happy that you enjoyed reading this.
A heartbreaking poem about long-distance lovers. And how one suddenly stop communicating and the other is distressed and broken with fret over her.

my pleasure Najam, for sharing your gifts with us all. :)
This may seem weird, but your poem reminds me of the internet phenomenon known as "catfish" (it's an MTV program here in the USA). It's about how people "connect" online, but never actually meet in person. Then one day, one of them disappears. It is said that person was a catfish (fake). Your idea of using statues to symbolize fake lovers is imaginative. I like the play between modern love situations (online) and old fashioned symbols of the past (statues) Fondly, Margie

In V5, this line seems awkward ("lost" used twice) and also it feels like you're reaching for this rhyme (using a cliché "lost in a maze"): "He felt lost as being lost in a maze."

Great poem.
Who really stops to look.
Yet the story is there to be marvelled.
Maybe we should open our eyes to read the story.
