Asif Andalib

A Bed Of Thorn

Baby my life is like a bed of thorn
If I had a choice I would not be born.

Oh my love is like a bad heartache
It reminds me always what I lack.

Oh my eyes are like thirsty sand
No one gives me her tender hand.

Oh my nights are full of sleeplessness
Cause my everything is in a mess.

    Shows the ultimate frustration of the poet. Beautiful lines explaining the state of mind.

    It is a powerful write Andalif, but too melancholic in tone and spirit! ! Why don't you cast off your gloom and look for a New year of hope and cheer!

    I have many poems written in these times of my life. They really are what make a man strong down the road. Cherish the creative energy that comes in times like these, and take out all of your pain in a constructive way.
