A Nightmare Kissed Away - Poem by Sharjeel Shahid

why am i roaming all scared
anymore dont want to face the world

i walk in a foggy forest
cant see in the distance, its blurry
only a few metres before the path unfolds

im lost and scared
want someone to whose hand i canhold

im not anymore, making it on my own
you guide me
show me the path as it is told

you shine like the moonlight in my path
the light giving me warmth
preventing me from the cold

the shadow of branches in between us
makes me loose my way, i trip in the darkness
i tumble and fall on the thongs

but you protect me like a shawl which covers me
stops me from the thoughts
which push me to do the wrongs

but i crawl in the moonlight and in the shadow of me i hide
i sit there with my head in my knees, waiting for the morning
the sun to shine on this side

each second passes like days
waiting for you to glide and pick me up
offer me a ride
a hand on my shoulder is felt like the heat of the sun
like the rays

i open my eyes slowly and recieve a kiss,
darkness fade away, bringing me eternal peace and bliss.
