A poem by Asma A.J which she wrote on a whim and decided to share with us. We hope you enjoy it ^^
Once, there were stars in their eyes,
There were smiles on their lips
All words, light
Where have you left it?
Those beautiful lips that
Kissed your forehead
Cracked down from your harsh tongue
Those beautiful words, nurturing, encouraging,
Everything you needed
Chocked in sadness from your harsh gaze
And those eyes— oh those eyes!
Where have those stars gone?
Down their cheeks, beautiful, sad
Those tears you made fall…
Those tears will be the fuel
Those tears will be engraved
To never forget
And for you

Author’s Note: Not much of a poetry person (hence the angst), but I enjoyed the space experimentation!
