Hi there! Welcome back to Anne Express. On the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr, I decided to pen a new poem for you. This was written using a pinterest prompt. So … enjoy!
Prompt: Write about the sound, color and smell of loneliness
The murmur of a butterfly’s’ wings.
The drip-drop of water running from a tap.
The beating of a single heart.
I wake up with a start.
Could this be? Is it real?
Bursts of colors … red, blue and green, make me feel.
The smell of freesia and lavender makes me
Hope against hope…
With a trembling hand I reach out,
But just like a bubble, it burst.
Leaving me with an unquenchable thirst.
The colors disappear, the smells fade.
Until all remains is the sound of a heartbeat.
A lonely heart.
