Lullaby // Yashfeen Baloch

Lullaby // Yashfeen Baloch I’ve been here for, actually I don’t remember. Maybe it’s been a week, or a month or months, I don’t even know if its day or night, I actually can’t tell. All the time its dark in here, but sometimes I see stars and moon, I don’t know if these are […]

Oh Nevermore // Misbah Ahmad

Oh Nevermore // Misbah Ahmad “The shrill, the shriek, the sham” The spell of witches of scam. Creeping into the pores of souls, Breaking under the dawn of coals.

Shhh… // Hamza Kazi

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 […]

Sea With Victory Over Land // Minahil Naghman

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 […]

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.

Silence of Confusion // Safa.f Aamir

Silence of Confusion // Safa.f Aamir 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 […]
