Poetry

Written by: Mohammad Hussain

Ever since the I met you
poetry is the only thing 
that keeps me from dying
knowing that I may die any time 
and considering that loving you was a crime
ever since I met you
I have become the so called lonely love guru

When all my desires are destroyed
and all my ambitions fail me, 
I feel as if I have been shattered
life is so short so I only have yet
to come and praise thee

I fall flat on the ground
having lost all hope 
but then I hear your voice
as if giving me a second life
by your voice I was drawn
I climbed every hill and all steep slopes
to the other side of the mountains 
only to find my dreams scattered 
all those dreams were but one dream 
For I only saw you and me
