The Left Corner Of My Right Heart - Poem by Asma Khan
Her tears fell on the pale rosy cheeks
brushing the shadows of the pain
I couldn't hold her hand for,
She knew this weakens her strength
Did she ever wish to be this strong?
His eyes kept following her till the last glimpse
leaving him into a lifeless body of ashes,
He knew this reminds him of her departure
Did he ever want to be remembered?
He couldn't hear her crying silently
walking over broken heart pieces,
He knew the sorrow was furrowed into his empty eyes
Did he ever choose to hurt her?
She claimed nothing about her loss, but
sighing and crying over the dead body of her heart,
laid in front of her questioning
She knew the heart doesn't have corners
Did she ever long to put his heart on her right?
His hands were cold, her lips froze
looking through each other's eyes,
they ended their story silently
They knew the promise of belonging to each other is true
Had they ever prayed to leave each other like this?
