Loop of Lies – Poem #16 – (2022)

Glancing at the present
Surveying a future,
Predicting a past.
As someone,
Who blinds to ever last
Lying to all,
While trying to coordinate.

Your another story
With a different face
Another lie
With that same taste
It was too soon
And couldn’t go right
Here’s another cold day
With over cloudy sky.

The tide has turned,
Turning its back
Another question
The answer is same
Nights burn,
The days are ever alike
But the picture is same
With another threat.

I was silent, weeping deep inside.
She further said; “we always find, what we are looking for.”
After she was gone far far away.
I said to myself; “I am looking for something too. All the time, everywhere. I don’t know what it is, but it’s something that I have never found. Could I have been looking for you? Nayab?”
