Night, Nights Sleepless - Poem by Asif Baloch

Night, nights sleepless eyes wide
sleep comes as disguise
Thou you asked love to
lend some happiness
fate has gifted you
sadness for life

Night, nights sleepless eyes wide
sleep comes as disguise
all boats are gone
and flooded away
your loved ones pierced
you with dagger of lies

Night, nights sleepless eyes wide
sleep comes as disguise
now why are you smiling
whilst bleeding tears
your sun is set
before even rise

Night, nights sleepless eyes wide
sleep comes as disguise
there was just a hope
on a peck of straw
alas! it is also burnt
now ashes doth lies

Night, nights sleepless eyes wide
sleep comes as disguise

    Simply divine writing Asif. The structure and flow of the poem is commendable. Alas, the last stanza completes the melancholy mood 'there was just a hope, on a peck of straw, also it burnt now ashes doth lies'. 10 Karin Anderson (Report) Reply

    waking or asleep
    Oh Asif tell me--
    how must death be deem
    things more true and deep
    than this mere mortal dream
    or how would thy notes flow
    in such a crystal stream
    a powerful write
