Romance Platitudes
Author: Aamir Aziz


o goddess of virtue and nobility
o silence of the serene woods
o mist of the solitary weed of the desert
o reward of centuries' wait and patience
o rationale of this illogical muse
o joy of forbidden fruit
o lonely excuse for abandonment of my contentment
o noble intention behind my excitement
o popular cause of all wars and battles
o only meaning of poets' existence and words
o crudest wine with purest taste and effect
o difference between faith and faithlessness
o melody in silence and peace in eloquence
o bare difference between truth and fallacy
o maiden hope of the cynics and the obsessed
o holy holy soul amidst uncouth rowdy folk
o innocent intention of heartfelt sacred groans
o beauty's unknown meaning
o worship's invented theorem
o true lover's untrue moving lore
o mystifying lingering urge upon fulfilment
o delightful stage of meditation
o cordial pact between envy and pride
o reticent pregnant gesture to sounds and noise
o enliven aspiration amid wild terrain of aims
o lavish contributor to my treasury of memoirs
o grimacing prudent onlooker at follies and crimes
o second thought of piety for abjectly sinful choirs
o polite reflection of a vanquished heart in eyes
o visible glimpse of a unique syllable
o final shape of an artist's old fantasy
o sublime virtue, manifest without a lure of reward
o solemn intent of one's conviction maturing into mass creed
o weary gay vision of triumphant truth after onslaught
what else must I give you the name!
