Poem: A Cascade of Tears

In: General

Thinking of you O Ali;
I feel an ache in my heart.

my hand trembles –
I try to pick up my pen

to write, to share your words,

my pen halts and I pause –
the tragedy replays in my mind

sadness drives through me
a tear drops onto the paper

pangs of sorrow lead
my pen to stray from the page.

I pick up my pen again
and vaguely sketch a word

O Ali

followed with a full stop.

putting my pen down,

I escape into the darkness
and unremittingly weep.
