                  The Watch Maker…

Let me be, leave me alone, I'm Him, leave me alone.
I'm in pain; let me be, let me be, on my own.
All the time, every night, only see vanished sights,
Let me be, being alone, tired of silent nights.
In this world of darkness, I feel pain and sadness.
Nothing there in my heart, only beats emptiness.
In this sad cave of time, I suffered from my crime.
I suffered with this pain, loneliness, all the time.
Time is pain, I feel trapped, I cannot face the fact.
Who am I? Watch maker, I don’t know how to act.
Fault me not, if I did, what I did for my own,
I am here, lonely nights, sleepless, all alone.
What I did in my mind, I made it partly blind,
I made it for my sake, what I hoped yet to find.
I have dreamed a shiny sun, shiny sun, seemed like fun. 
No more fear no more fright, a good deed I have done.
With the light I can see, lushes land full of trees,
Shinning jewels red and green, dancing with morning breeze.
I made birds flying high, no more pain no more cry.
Rainbow near, out of clouds, ocean there in the sky.
I made grapes; I made wine, holy wine suits me fine.
I made sobers, I made drunks, drunks for me are divine.
I gave love; I gave truth, to all men sins of youth.
I gave life, I gave death, I gave all reckless truth.
Do not bother me tonight, I’m dreaming of the light,
If I wake up tonight, all your days will be night.
I need you more than I; if you live I don’t die,
Who is it? You or I; if we’re one both can fly.	
Am I drunk, maybe mad? Let me be, I’ll be glad.
Don’t wake me from this dream; I will be so so sad.

Hi pashang, this is a most creative Masavni from your pen. Your imagination does sing freely through each thought. Your words bring the reader into the heart of your imagery and I, for one, was entranced by the piece from beginning to end. This incredible write is a fave my friend. Have a wonderful Sunday. Your friend always....Mike.

Hello Pashang, A very creative poem with a finely tuned intensity of thought and interwoven imagery. You bring the reader fully along with you in this masterfully-done narrative. The word picture you've crafted here of the Watch Maker and his numerous actions is a most definite pleasure to read!! Superb!! Best Wishes, Gary

Thanks Gary, thanks again and again. The master of this style of poetry is RUMI. The question is, am I mad or am I drunk? Who is going to take me home?....

Pashang, this is awesome. I had never read, nor written this form and it appears to be difficult yet you have captured it with a capable pen. Very cool!

Pashang: You've read a bit of my stuff and know how simple it is. I just can't get my mind around the intensity you have included in this lovely piece. Thank you for sharing it with all of us on the soup. Keep them coming. And an artist as well, great job. oldbuck

This reminds me of a movie I saw last year, it was a metaphor for God, but now I have gone and forgotten its title. Anyway, this is very dream-like and I believe the watch maker is God?

such deep dark imagery which is complimented so well by your artistic talents (so glad to see that butterfly!!!) I'd hate to have such dark dreams and would welcome being woken from it. What book is it in your picture and i have to say the detail on the chess piece is stunning!!! :-) hugs Jan xx
