Best Poem of Leila Samarrai

Time On The Other Side Of The Wall (The Poem Of Childhood) , 'The Darkness Will Understand'

I squint through the grid
Sweeping
Are the murmurs of childhood
Symbols of intimacy
And dreams
One by one
One by one
And time became
Time on the other side of the wall
And of life behind us

Read the full of Time On The Other Side Of The Wall (The Poem Of Childhood) , 'The Darkness Will Understand'

Hush

You will go blind soon I think
Like the dead that squint
Near strong light
The victors at the end of all suns
Who brought forth the octopuses on the shores
Usually rising
With a finger on the lip
whispering.
