When it all ends, it goes down on paper

Hey everyone! I am really very happy to tell you all that two of my works have been published in my college magazine. I know its not a big shot, but it was my first attempt at getting something published somewhere and it is really a wonderful feeling when people you know very well, and even those you really don’t know that well, come up to you and appreciate your work. So I thought I need to share one of those poems with you all too. The first one has been published in this blog earlier, in the post titled ‘Emptiness’. These were written about 6-7 months ago at a very low point of my life. But Alhamdulillah (thanks to Allah), the time has gone, and these poems just reminisce the feelings then.

THE END OF YOU
Here I am back on the lane..
Which gives nothing else but pain..
When will it stop?
The sliding tear drop,
When will they fade?
The memories that eventually invade,
My mind, my heart, my soul..
Planting a deathly ghoul..
You taught me how to love
I learnt how to care
Those silent conversations we drove
Are the best moments we share
But now you’re gone
And I’m forlorn
Wish you had shown me how to hate
Because you’re not worth the wait
My only hope in sight
Is that the day would become bright
The clouds would cast away
And I would dance and sway
And talk and smile
Which I have not done in a while
Oh Lord, bring back those times
Please.. bring back those times…

I’d appreciate your feedback! Hope you liked it! 🙂

Emptiness

Memories. Sigh, they can be joyful and precious, or painful and not worth a dime. And the worst trait of the latter kinds are that no matter how hard we try, they can just never be forgotten. We always forget the happier moments of life whenever we are faced with a tragedy. Whats worse is one tragedy has the power to flood our mind with all the other tragedies that have occurred in the past. And then starts the trip down the memory lane. A harsh, rugged lane, with very few highs and many more lows. I travelled down a similar memory lane last night and I suddenly recollected the poem I had written a few months ago. So I just thought I’ll share it with you all. There is nothing more I will say today because I need some time to gather my emotions. Hope you all like the poem! 🙂

They’ve all drowned..
All the feelings my heart crowned…
Love was the first to sink in…
Trust got destroyed by hateful sin.
Hope was all that was left
It filled up the space left by the rest
But alas, the storm grew stronger
And the monstrous waves crushed it all over
Hope tried to hold on..
But the force was too strong..
It tried to find a way
To prolong the stay..
But the storm didn’t cease
And destructed all peace.
All sense has fled my mind..
Emptiness…. is what’s left behind…..
