Yesterday I Was Walking Alone On The Road - Poem by Ali Sabry

Yesterday I was walking alone on the road
I was listening to the car noise
& between the car lights I was seeing your face
Your picture it's shadow in the dark
Your shadow don't need lights to be visible
Cause all of you is lights
You are my light of my way
By your eyes I can see
Without you I'm blind
Why you didn't call me whole these long months
Where are you now
Please let me hear your pure voice for once
I know that the fate is to stay far away from each other
What can we do this is it we must accept it
I'm alone
The walls of my room cried for my situation
The empty pillow beside me in my bed asking about you

    Modern thinking inspires a new form of poetry. This piece presents us with a insight into the darkness of life. Ironically, the poet finds his light in the darkness. Keep polishing the works just like fine silverware needs constant polishing although the silverware is artistically crafted. The poet may look into the concept of poetic 'alliteration'.

    Now her shadow is your words full of inner lights, wish these lights could be visible for her one day.
    Nice words vividly describe us a fine frenzy, 'almost lovers always do'
