Too Late

By Zunaira Afzal

How plainly he said,
that he never loved
He didn’t see those seas,
My eyes had flowed
after losing him…
And never heard those shrieks,
my emotions had made
He never saw,
that deep seclusion
echoing inside me
He just said it…
I buried his memories
and threw the ashes of my dreams
to possess love
into a deep sea of nothingness
And then he came,
empty handed..
bare footed..
to mourn at the tomb-stone
of my desires…
