The Morning Star

BY LUBNA MARYAM

A ball of fire I am
For young lads Arthur and Sam
My shine, my warmth, my sparkle
Falls upon everyone living in this circle

I am a beauty when I rise
People call me the star that never dies
I am a mystery when I set
Truth is, I never get rest

I burn forever, yet I give hope
I give life, I am a hero
Dazzling the lush, green slope

I illuminate the deceiving darkness
And heal dead hearts and sorrowful souls
I am the bringer of light
I am the healer of plight

A ball of fire I am
I am the golden sun.

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! 🙂
