Okay Talks

Not usual, it sprouts from the heart:
Unable to speak up that’s how an Okay
Comes into being and tell me now
Isn’t it that an ok pines away your smile.
Still you give voice to it, you hide behind,
But I don’t accept an okay! For I see:
A flamed soul bitterly burning.
I understand ‘ no sharing ‘ zone I land in
Whenever I try to wipe the frost off
Your forehead … Blind I may be,
Blinded by the love God brought up
And washed my veins with, warding off
The element of greed , I submit …
Thus an Okay strikes my broken heart
“okay Talks” I create in my mind , an okay world,
Where in I understand your silence ..
