Alefya Najmi

Rookie (February 18,1981 / Karachi)


Standing in my balcony,
In the early hours of dawn,
I encounter two separate worlds.
One lies in front of my wakeful eyes,
In the form of yellow street lights,
And the dead silent trees on deserted road,
Afraid even to talk to themselves,
As the human neighbors around them,
Rest with their souls gone.
