:heart: Your poems. Sometimes when I begin to read them - I am selective to the kind of poems I read, I leave them halfway when I feel no connection - I felt (which this poem) that maybe this poem can't be understood by me or felt by me, but I am proved wrong quite often. What starts as a bemused welcome stanza begins to really connect with the reader and if not connect, the reader is drawn into your story, drawn into the life that you put in your poems.

Asmara, you may not know this, and in a couple of days after you read this comment you might even forget - but you poetry resonates with me. I love to read what you write because I am so proud of what you have been able to produce so effortlessly - thought I know how hard it is to write and write immaculately like you do! - and that too, coming from a Pakistani, I feel this affiliation, this sense of belonging. I heard it is one of most powerful feelings. :aww: Anyway, you are one of my favourite poetess and always will be.

it actually does mean that in Punjabi, literally :giggle: but, here, since the context was different I had to use its other meaning.
