By Hirra Sultan
The light of soul may dim sometimes
And the situation be all bleak
The darkness slowly creeps in
Aura turning all blue!
Eyes blinded by floods,
Not a soul in sight
The weak muscles all screaming,
‘Get somebody for support’
A cry heard far, far away
Yet not a soul turned up
Energy, emotions wasted so…
Oh! If only
Expectations, love is all farce
Nobody stands by for long
Water ebbs and flows forward
Who wastes time on a stuck up soul?
In those moments of loss and despair
Do you find your reservoir?
The identity, your individuality
And that dependence is addictive too!
