Listen

Filed under: Poetry — by Zuhair @ 4:59 am

Do you hear ?
Like water drops, like a waterfall.
Listen. They call.

Listen, won’t you ?
Open your eyes.
When you close them, a part of me dies.

Why won’t you listen ?
It’s shut. I don’t hear a heartbeat.
Your eyes refuse to meet.

Mine.
Overwhelming tears stifle, see
I drown. Drown with me.

Listen.
That’s all I ask. Strength fails.
Me. You’ve taken down the sails.
