Pain And Vain - Poem by Mahfooz Ali

As I searched the depths of my heart
for love I know was once delightful
the security became a stranger
a result of ruins in an eyeful

Sacredness to which I belonged, removed
grief has prevailed
loneliness is the shadow in control
and I am suffering from betrayal

The love has vanished from our lives
the moments I feel are in vain
I now suffer in solitude
living the reality of pain.
