Yesterday I Was Walking Alone On The Road - Poem by Ali Sabry

Yesterday I was walking alone on the road
I was listening to the car noise
& between the car lights I was seeing your face
Your picture it's shadow in the dark
Your shadow don't need lights to be visible
Cause all of you is lights
You are my light of my way
By your eyes I can see
Without you I'm blind
Why you didn't call me whole these long months
Where are you now
Please let me hear your pure voice for once
I know that the fate is to stay far away from each other
What can we do this is it we must accept it
I'm alone
The walls of my room cried for my situation
The empty pillow beside me in my bed asking about you

    you should go a long way..
    do not leave your track...
    growing is maturing.... but it is also narrowing of your vision.... try to avoid...
    ..
    write continuously....

    With some reservations, this poem is intensely romantic and powerfully expressive. You need to rewrite certain expressions to give powerful impact. Also, you need to pay attention to punctuation and grammar mistakes. I advise you to read English poetry as much as you can because this will yield great benefits to you as a poet with romantic and honest touches. Thanks a lot for inviting me to read your poems. It was an honor for me. Wish you best of luck. (Report) Reply

    Your picture it's shadow in the dark
