Shamsiya Khudoynazarova Turumovna

I READ... 

I read ghazals, i read novels 
I travelled, i smiled, and drowned .
Life's ain't like literature class, alas! 
i failed in a story i owned... 
Silence's neither being alive nor dying, 
The most heavy blows of howl. 
To smile while your crying, 
A witch that break your soul...
