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. He didnt waste the tragedy of him being forsaken by letters so he wrote letters to letters, […]

SINCERE IGNORANCE

SINCERE IGNORANCE

Intention wrapped in a lover’s caress Poison oozing from each word As they drip into eager ears Sincere ignorance to reality Confusion born of built up hopes Healing the depths of soul But unprogram loop up freaks faith and hope Rising to a margin of love Held in a pocket of deceit No signpost engulfs […]

Wisdom in the moment of difficulty

Wisdom in the moment of difficulty

Faizan Bashir I wasted my moment, in the process of procrastination, All of a sudden i turned out to release some sort of indication. I put my hands into the crippling stuff, All of a sudden, it turned out to be bluff. The extremes, the eagarness and the passiveness taught me best, That some sort of […]

Beauty and Beauty

Raees Ahmed Oft men pipe up of vales and gales, That wobble spring buds and leaves, And of old unsung fairy tales, Before lovers meet, of that eves. Of Unravished bride and fair kisses, Arcadian jiffies beside their beau, And of ardent wishes, Of throes afore they bid adieu, Moorish eyes are lecherous and wild, […]

Mother

Mother

Took my pain for holding me, When I was a worthless drop, For me, flysheet you are, Enshrined me from evaporation. Thou are the candle, Burned thyself, enlightened me, Deathless, your care for me, Frazzled thyself, fretted me, Made thyself the fertile soil, For me to grow well, Took all your nutrients, And left you […]
