Beqarari Shayari

Restlessness is an unwelcome state of existence. In life, there may be many reasons for restlessness but in poetry it is usually the love that makes the two—the lover and the beloved—restless for each other. Interestingly, restlessness can also be a uniquely enjoyable state for the lover to be in. Here are a few samples on this theme.
