After a time, all your passions, all your longings, and all your desires die from inside you, and then you feel the regret that you also miss someone.

I don't know what kind of person I was in my past life

But I was never hurt by my desires

But living neutral now seems like being invisible

I am visible to everyone, but I have lost sight of seeing myself. I am sad about my sight and this sadness is much more than all the regrets that I have ever had, or to be honest, I don't even remember. .

About the Creator


Let me submit, writing and solitude are essential. Writing is not possible in Mahfil Yaran. Why a person writes, how he writes, why he thinks, nothing can be said with certainty.

    Well-wrought! We writers are all mystics of a sort, aren't we? It's a solitary pursuit into an inner world only we can access, and the signs of which we may only convey inadequately through symbols common to an external world with which the inner space can only ever partially resonate. It may be that we are tasked with discovery, for what we bring back from the dark inner recesses of the soul to the outer light is often that very thing which the world needs, though we may have already departed by the time the world picks it up and dusts it off, eh? It may even be that, sometimes, that which remains are not words and names but the very essence of thought transferred to purer hearts and brighter souls, to be tranformed into the living light! Many blessings and much love!

    I always wonder who i was in my past life. I think I was a poet or a great writer or a slave who revolted. Yes, it is all hazy, but it makes us who we are. Lovely story Naveed.

    True that we spend more time helping others see themselves than we do ourselves. Sad but true. Well said, Naveed.
