Let me down once again // Umer Shah Jehan

Let me down once again // Umer Shah Jehan Tell me one more beautiful lie, Let me down once again, With the bellicose broken-and- shattered heart and soul. Tell me one more beautiful lie, Let me hate my own self once again, With tear-storm in my eyes and never-ending loathe in my mended heart. Tell […]

A crippled flower // Afia Qamar

A crippled flower // Afia Qamar

A crippled flower // Afia Qamar A crippled flower; practiced choir, over the deadly moor on a chaotic night. How amusing, that halfwit, it wished to, become a falcon, under the moonlight. But why a flower would desire, to become more? Is not it already the most exquisite thing on earth? A flower is like […]

Under the Tuscan Sun // Afia Qamar

Under the Tuscan Sun // Afia Qamar

Under the Tuscan Sun // Afia Qamar I sprinkled sunflower petals in the warm water, to make it gold. Then dipped my body quietly in the bathtub, to wash my tainted soul. The morning light peeked through the lemon colored grass, while the fading fate dissolved in the pearly waves of my lash. My lifted […]

Is The World Developing? // Hamza Ahmed

Is The World Developing? // Hamza Ahmed The world around me feels surreal, The chaos in it getting bigger, Technology is growing, Humanity is diminishing, I wonder why I’m here.

Absolute Existence // Saima Hussain

Absolute Existence // Saima Hussain Masking beneath the crisp of my skin, Devouring on my exquisite ichor, It is alive, My fear, my angst of losing you. I yearn for the similar quietude, The sanity of the heartless world I dwelled in, I can’t be a prisoner, The prison, the stockade of undesirable thoughts. Slithering […]

Control // Minahil Naghman

Control // Minahil Naghman Its roaring, erupting from inside me like lava, won’t stay silent a second longer. It’ll burst down like waves from the sea. It’s angry, my foolish heart, broken and it’s tearing me too. My brain a slave to its whims, It controls me now, like a fool. It forces me to […]
