Staring at demons of nothingness, yearning for the caress of astral whispers...

Heartless autumn

By Momina Hassan

Wandering midst barren eaves, cradling the abstract hues of autumn

Probing the wild echoes of laughter, holding onto the pale beams of joy

Walking upon withered leaves, humming a sweet melody

Staring at demons of nothingness, yearning for the caress of astral whispers

Breathing in the sadistic breeze, the venom of silence nearing me

Hail the heartless autumn

Calm in the air

By Zeba Aziz

The air is so calm

So appealing tonight

The glee I hear

With no noise tonight

The calmness, singing,

The language of peace

With all its sounds

With all its beats

Yet calm prevails

All in the air

The speaking silence

Is all I can hear

The moon and the stars

Too, are quiet

Enjoying the calm in

The air, tonight

Poems forever

Heaven

By William Butler Yeats

Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,

Enwrought with golden and silver light,

The blue and the dim and the dark cloths

Of night and light and the half-light,

I would spread the cloths under your feet:

But I, being poor, have only my dreams;

I have spread my dreams under your feet;

Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

Alive

By Mah Noor

When the sun goes down

And the heart stops beating

When the words fly over

And the sky is full of stars

I miss you like the wind

That misses smell of flowers

When the leaves are falling

And the life stands still

You give me all the hope

To bloom and fill

The emptiness inside

And to keep at ease

The shaking mind of mine

So come to me today

And hold my hand

‘Cause I’m falling down

And I want to feel alive

I want to see you smile

And I want to hold your hand

All through my life

I want to feel alive
