Sweetened Lies - Poem by Asma Khan

Be the ocean of bright dawns
this eagerness is right to all wrongs

That I might go on hopping for you, dead end
such scars have made me your legend

Wounded by the air and needing nothing
smiling at the pains isn't that loving

Your voice alone, amongst million of storms
brings back life to me in all norms

Leave me to write your name on the running water
so time can tell our tale in every quarter

Turn again to the upland slopes and live
wish nor to give but to forgive

Believing the sea was a sky of mysteries
I burnt many stars to erase those histories

That the stars were dew in your dusky eyes
many galaxies were true to such lies
