(After Faiz Ahmad Faiz’s Dhaka se Wapsi par)

Anjum Altaf

So often

I have said it to myself

I wish to say it to you

It should not be difficult

But it is


Do you sense

What I am trying to say


Why I cannot say it


Feelings are feelings

Words, words

So much is lost on the way


What would it take

To trust again

To feel

Without the need

To say
