The Cloud Is Melting There - Poem by Aftab Alam

The cloud is melting there and here
My heavy icy heart, no one to share
My body and soul drenched with tear
One is decaying and other dancing with fear.

Body needs body and soul needs soul
Head needs lap to ease and tender touch
Lungs need musk to breathe without foul
Blurred eyes capture not except you, as such.

How far I walk or stroll bleeding alone?
My grief laugh not I stood forlorn
If life gives wound then death is a reward
What if, life is like a child without ward?

Secluded, tired enough with this world,
My dead intuition and unwise wisdom
Into the darken void avoids the hurled
And tied me here to put me in mayhem

No street lights, nothing is seen into the dark
No body, no breeze only sound of bitchy bark
Somewhere in an ocean, there’s many shark
Curious and bubbling to catch the songs of lark

I am shivering, panting, dying and sweating
I am melting here without heat and share
O my beloved Lord either you love me as I love
Or make me a bird that sings or a peace dove
