Diamonds and dreams
Diamonds and dreams in the eyes thirsty,
miles away lies what I look for.
My soul is handful of dust,
but still I wish to cross the Getaway.
Majesty in the sunshine of my day,
distant monsoons I see in every poem.
My heart lives in ruptured illusions,
but still I wish to walk on Marine Drive.
Will I ever reach the borders
of the Arabian sea?
Will I ever visit “the city
where changes happen overnight”?
The Getaway – attraction in Mumbai, India
Marine Drive– area in Mumbai/also known as the Queen’s necklace/
“the city where changes happen overnight” – a line from the poem “Mumbai” by Fahim Sayed on PoemHunter.com
