When Demon’s Dome Fall!

When Demon’s Dome Fall!

Aabid Yousuf  Fantasized common masses with Green, Rallied to turn crime clean, Hypnotized to demean, Oathed with ultimate obscene.

Our Eid becomes mourning again!

Our Eid becomes mourning again!

(No matter how much we try to forget the grief and the pain on this beautiful occasion of eid, it still comes to haunt especially when there are fresh wounds. Here I try to sum up that exasperation in a sort of poem.) When the Shawaal moon was sighted in the sky, That silver arch […]

Gluttony

Gluttony

Such was his gluttony to write thats on the days of words absconding or on the nights when muse had abandoned him he built an elegy over the ruins of his frail imagination, parched pen and desolate paper.

When they lost me

When they lost me

They found me in debris, Filled with dust allover, And it was the time- When they lost me! The birds, Were bereft of my company, It spoke of the time- When they lost me! The alleys, That colored my childhood, Turned colorless- When they lost me! The comrades, Who fought with me- Missed the valour […]

A dirge from Aasifa

A dirge from Aasifa

I was a pure-hearted soul, Innocence would live in myself. I was a girl, Who always kept a stoic attitude. I was a girl, Of a proud nation. I was a girl, Who always remained loyal to her family.   Never had I thought of, Becoming prey to some savages. Never had I thought of, […]

Mourning

Mourning

Mourning has lost its relevance As it’s going with no end It’s an ordeal, Now, with no significance! The rage and outrage, Has engulfed my brain The blood and emotions, Are pumping in my vein Now, Why don’t we die all at once- For we will, Mourn our deaths at once! Author is a student of […]
