By Tabassum Tahmina Shagufta Hussein


My tears evaporated
Into the air.
And follows you everywhere,
As a Shadow companion.


My wish is floating aimlessly,
Like a kite,
Without a destination,
To be loved
To be taken ground,
 On the the ground,
But only to be lost 
In the limitless sky,
Never to be found again.


Tears desire emancipation
Pain doesn’t let her go.
Tears metamorphosed
Into the unbreakable ice,
Remains in the heart 
As an eternal prisoner.


Pain has gained freedom.
The nexus of the heart 
Has given it forever’s release.
It wanders freely
No more Pain.
Pain is blessed today,
By the love of the Divine.


My soul is free ,
Encaged in a body ,
Yearning to leave.
To fly in the sky ,
Like a floating cloud.
Finally to be free,
Bondless, a free spirit.
