“I don’t have the poetry that you do. So your longing seems greater than mine. But it’s not…”

How I wish I had the ability to compose a sher or a poem for every moment of unbridled joy, deepest despair, maddening passion, mind-numbing helplessness or soulful calmness I have experienced…

Perhaps, then, you would truly understand the rhythm of my heartbeat…

Perhaps, then, you could comprehend every grain of my existence…

And maybe, just maybe, choosing would be a lot easier…
