When I felt this way // Rimsha Jawwad

It wasn’t a dark cold shivery night With leaves swirling around with the wind Cool breeze, calming my anxious nerves When I felt this way, Just a normal day among the bunch of people Blaming me insane, for the curse filled pain Heaviest with unuttered words, bright sunny day  When i felt this way,  I […]

Burnt Paper, Burn Soul // Minahil Naghman

Roses White roses surround him In bouquets and on the pillars White, as they mourn for their death Black Dresses and shoes and suits Grief in every atom of air Sorrow in space enfolded Wet faces As tears they tumble down Making their path below Weeping in grief as the teardrops fall Remorse Filling the […]

Shhh… // Hamza Kazi

We cannot write silence.  The beats The pause The breath The way it aches and persists  and begs that,  if only for a moment,  our consciousness is only a whisper our bodies,  our lips, the air that passes through falling chests  and stillness A melody of emotion.  Sleeping in the quiet of a heartbeat skipped  […]

Sea With Victory Over Land // Minahil Naghman

Standing on the shore As the sea hit my bare feet The foam accumulating around my ankles Then leaving in a beat. Cold as it leaves me be The sea claims its victory As it invades the land that stays near Yet then it leaves the sand on its own to be I stare out […]

She Whispers // Hamza Kazi

I sensed a ripple through her mind like,A floating butterfly.With wings clipped offA delicate ambiguityWith a sense of disbelief,“This is a nightmareNot a dream,”She whispered. As tears fell across her lips Lips chapped and faded With fear highlighted on her eyelids, “I’m just a sinner, I’m not your saint,” She whispered. The dormancy in my […]

Birds of Heaven // AinulHayat

Some birds are here to pray  They have broken wings  With bleeding hearts  Their sadness make them shine  With beautiful colors  The color of heaven  They always carry teary eyes  The young ones are blind  Sorrow sadness loneliness in their soul  Made them blind  To see the world  They sing and dance at night  They […]

Foolish Mortals Can Be // Minahil Naghman

He knocked on her door; Bouquet of flowers in his hands, A promise of a better tomorrow A façade of endless lies. She looked out the window Saw him standing there With a melancholic look on his face Making promises for a better beginning. He cried her name, Called out to her love, Said he […]

Sema // Ainulhayat

I’m looking at the sky My eyes filled with tears My heart starts dancing I can hear the sound My soul is leaving my body Because he has found his path. He is wearing that black frock, That wear by whirling dervish. He is whirling Slowly deeply spinning I can’t see myself anymore I can’t […]
