The Fall - Poem by Nosheen Irfan

My heart's land is strewn with yellow leaves
Fallen from the heights of dreams
The wind whistles through the emptiness
Biting, stinging the faint flesh

I sink and sink into an autumn abyss
Hearing the moans of the trampled leaves
The feet stamp hard on my heart
And trees are shedding, shedding my dreams

Topic(s) of this poem: autumn, melancholy, mood

    Withering leaves and withered dreams! How well you have associated your melancholy stricken heart and the fading dreams with the Fall. From the autumn abyss you can fly straight to vernal heights! Very effective images are used in the poem. (Report) Reply

    Surreal imagery! And trees are shedding, shedding my dreams... You have given a dramatic touch to the poem with this line where yellow leaves the trees are shedding become your dreams. (Report) Reply
