Kept awake by drunks and car alarms and crying foxes

Kept awake by drunks and car alarms and crying foxes
I can't unpack my dreams' stacked cardboard boxes
Tho', in baul song, fierce rain and bull frog banquets
Yet are the cunning of Radha's tell-tale anklets

Very nice sad poetry.
I am sharing some of my favorite sad poetry here.



Dil ki baat labon par la kar ab tak ham dukh sehte hain
Ham ne suna tha is basti mein dil wale bi rehte hain

Beet gya sawan ka mahena mosam ne nazrain badlen
Lekin in payasi aankhon se ab tak aansoo behte hain

Aik hmain awara kehna koi bara ilzam nahi
Dunya wale dil walon ko aur bohat kuch kehte hain

Jin ki khatar shehr bi chora jin ke liye badnaam hoye
Aaj wohi ham se begane begane se rehte hain

Wo jo abi is rah guzar se chak greban guzra tha
Us awara dewane ko jalib jalib kehte hain
