Pain of Loneliness

by Shaista Khadim

The wind slaps me
The sand pricks my feet
My hands bleed
Because of my nails piercing.

Tears don't flow out
Despite how hard I try.
I could always escape by letting them out
But this time I can't cry.

I think of all those times
When smile ruled me
When you stood beside me
When my heart was free.

Now all I see
Is loneliness...
All I feel
Is desertness...

But if my smile
In this eon of pain
Can give you happiness,
Then I will try again and again
To stay happy
If not from the heart
But at least in front of you
So you can have a new start.

The sun sets
Beyond the horizon
And I stand watching the free birds
Let my heart sink like the sun.
