Sameera Alshaikh


The lullaby


The lights go out - I'm all alone
I spent the night on my own
Soaked in tears I sink like a stone
Unnamed feelings never let me go
Pacify the monsters in my head
Pacify the damn monsters, my dearest friend.

We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
