Isolation, a secret, a silence
A secret of people who are silent
I’m talking of the dead
Isolation, a desire, a strength,
A desire to ask for God’s blessing
I’m talking of prayer
Isolation, a love, a kindness
A love, a request for God’s pure love
I’m talking of deep affection.
Isolation, a fragrance, a scent,
A fragrance from a flower that acts as a magnet
I’m talking of desire.
Isolation, an ache, a cut
Ache for distant family, a cut the colour of blood
I’m talking of separation.
Isolation, a happiness, a smile
Happy memories of good times that make me smile
I’m talking of parents, siblings, friends.
Isolation, a chapter of your life, a lesson.
A chapter full of regret and apologies for past mistakes.
I’m talking of overcoming one’s ego.
Isolation, a separation, a union
A separation from the past, a union with the present
I’m talking of time
Isolation, life, difficulties.
A life full of difficulties, and how to solve them.
I’m talking of hope
Isolation, you and I,
I am Khan, sitting in the dark, writing for you
I’m talking of love of isolation.
