I see you
Hidden behind that veil

The eyes are all I see

And yet, that seems enough

So many tears, unseen

So much joy, unfettered

So much love, unrequited

So much hate, buried inside

So many emotions, bundled up inside
Yet unspeaking

A silent language

No heart, no mind

No sound, no syllable

Just your eyes

I understand

The silent language

Your language

    Hey, its nice to hear that there are people still like you who understands the language of silence.
    Its not at all easy to know what are the tears meant for , either joy or sorrow.But if you really understand this language, I am sure you know why I was all tinme confused.

    Yaar, sarey hijabis/niqaabis itne udhaas nahin hote... yeh ek wrong stereotype hai.

  3. I'm not really sure what to say here..what'd'ya say to someone who can't reveal themselves - at least, not in the obvious way. But the eyes do say a lot, and the veil says a lot more. Or perhaps I'm misreading the situation..maybe she's protecting herself from the wind - or perhaps she's guarding what's left inside her, making sure no one knows the real her, making sure she doesn't expose herself to the world & become vulnerable.
