Silence of Confusion // Safa Amir

Silence of Confusion // Safa Amir I was lying on the porch, Watching the sky The aura was cold & subtle Just like  me, The me who was fighting, Between whether to hold on & to move on, But there was a distant silence between them. The silence of confusion Which juggling me to decide […]

Away from hell // Aimen Iqbal

The hell, they say Is a place they fear, Full of demons residing And flames burning there. They never felt or saw The place that exists Behind the invisible mists. Yet a phantom they believe Never felt by the flagitious The pain hidden, Nor by the honest around. But He put me in a place […]

World by passion

World by passion // Amit Sukhani

World by passion A soul, an avid reader from south, to persuade his dream, moves towards north Where he gets bashed just because of belonging to south.  Turning his head from north, he sets his belongings for east, Again, the same story: he gets bashed. But this time because of being a minority. However, east […]

Happiness Returns // Aimen Iqbal

Happiness Returns // Aimen Iqbal The dusk came, Lost all its hues, the sky The demons were set free, Black wings began to fly. I hid in a corner So afraid of the storm The agony mixed with air. Rushed in each lung  The memories vanished with a thwack, The pictures fall off, which was […]

Play of fate // Safa F. Aamir

Play of fate // Safa F. Aamir Welcome audience to the play of fate, Directed exceptionally by the Lord’s plan Here what I misconceived that I’m a main character, That I may lead, and the consequences get in order. Here by my stance, the script can be manipulated, Only euphoric acts can be played, and […]

Him, Her, He & She // Hamza Kazi

Him, Her, He & She // Hamza Kazi The ending ticking, of the bedside clock, is the only sound he hears, as he lays inside, his own grieving heart. Staking his claim, in this dark, self-imposed confinement, he utters a silent cry, and awaits the reply, to his unanswered questions. The silent inner scream, clawing […]

Ungrateful // Eman Khalid

Ungrateful // Eman Khalid How ungrateful you are, for having everything  you need. Yet complaining, for all of the things  you don’t have. For all of the things others yearn to have; a roof over your head, a warm meal, a good education, a healthy mind, body, and a heart that beats. How grateful you […]

His Universe is in me // Aqsa Umar

His Universe is in me // Aqsa Umar

His Universe is in me // Aqsa Umar In specks of light and silence of the nights, I found him in hearts where prayers reside. In eyes of lovers, in a stranger’s gaze Like melting snow, like fire ablaze. Gleaming in a child’s eyes, and in smiles so pure, He’s there when life falls, in […]

Chaotic Relations // Iqra Aziz

                              Chaotic Relations // Iqra Aziz Cold enough for warm feelings                               Hellish enough for angelic feelings                               Alien enough for dearly feelings                               Obfuscate enough for crystallite feelings                               Tortuous enough for comfy feelings                               Ill enough for sane feelings                                Cystic enough for germinating  feeling                               Raucous enough for dulcet feelings                                Estrange enough for  intimate   feelings                               Lonely enough for homely […]

Dear mother // Eman Khalid

Dear mother // Eman Khalid Cruel mothers are still mothers, who teach their daughters, the harsh reality of life, at a very young age, the highs,  the lows, the pain, the ache, and the abuse. I would be lying if I said, I never resented you, as a sixteen-year-old I wondered, why you were always […]
