Marasim #NewNormal #A2Z


(Urdu) Relations

People meet all the time

and get entangled like woolen threads

a knot here, a twist there

some even fading and some 

leaving a shade on the other 

And sometimes people break  too

Like tense strings 


memory of a marasim 

and if they join again 

the knot remains.

Tough times 

are expensive

They cost a lot

sometimes sanity, health

sometimes a few precious marasim.


This is my 6th #AtoZ, read the posts from previous challenges HERE.

  1. रहिमन धागा प्रेम का, मत तोड़ो चटकाय,
    टूटे से फिर न जुड़े, जुड़े गाँठ परि जाय।
    May all the true relationships pass through all the time-tests!!

  2. It is hard to sustain relationships in these times. Sometimes too much togetherness can become toxic... and sometimes too much absence does make you forget

  3. The title reminded me of Jagjeet singh's famous album Marasim.
    Loved this poem, people meet like threads, with knots, twists & tensed too.
    Yes times cost marasim...

  4. So true. Tough times are expensive.
    The knots' analogy puts me in mind of Kabir's doha.

  5. So true! Some drift away, some break, and some shatter but heal the person. That's all life is about, and our choices decide the next course.

  6. How beautifully you have put it. I love visiting your blog, your poems are so fluid!

  7. The thread analogy is perfect. I didn't know the word marasim, so thanks for introducing that as well.

  8. So true, of friends and colleagues -- even family. When it works, the woven threads form a beautiful fabric, but when it breaks, there is often no patch to make a good repair.

  9. Do you think that sometimes the knot after the break can end making things stronger? I've seen it go both ways. Weekends In Maine

  10. Relationships are fragile and delicate and if handled either very tightly or very loosely is sure to develop glitches. The word itself is so beautiful and I loved the poem.

  11. Yes relationships are complex, thanks for visiting

  12. This was so interestingly written.People do retain the knots in their relationships even when we get back together.
