Umera Fatima Riyaz

Perplexed Souls

Perplexed universes,

We stand apart,

Grey and whimper.

Do souls talk?

After they have departed,

Those celestial lovers;

Stringing across space.

Floating from galaxy to galaxy.

Do they live again?

Begin again,

Their love blossoms

As a shooting star

Across the sky.

And their love grows

As red as mars do.

And it glows

As bright as the sun.

They spend millenniums together,

Morning and night.

Watching over us,

Breaking our hearts over pity souls!

And feeling horrid;

With love today

They swirl back

Into each other's arms.
