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 […]

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.

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 […]

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 […]

To the Isolation // Munazzah Ali

To the Isolation // Munazzah Ali The deserted state of my chaotic mind. Started changing its form, With the storm of thoughts, When the huge tornado of thoughts, And realization hit my nerves. My bloodshot eyes were same like it, Dry, deserted yet screaming. The voice, the screams, collide, And broke my wall of self-esteem, […]

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 […]
