My nights are lonely, bizarre and horrible.

I don’t know what shall be next.

Never have I been so desperate as I am now.

My people are locked like a dump flock of sheep.

As if even the wind stopped to travel from Kashmir.

As if everything is lifeless, numb and frozen.

I keep on thinking about my people, my family and friends.

Will I ever listen from them, have a glimpse and exchange my worries.

I don’t know what shall next be.

Weird thoughts have taken control of my mind.

Can I see them healthy and hearty?

Will my heaven be heaven again?

O’ my homeland, I wish I could never leave you.

I wish I could have witnessed the death with you.

I wish I can smell your freshness again.

I wish I can celebrate your sovereignty.

I wish my phone can ring and I can hear my dad’s voice.

I wish my heaven be free from the brutal and forced occupation of Imperialists.

Hello Dear Sister Sumera,

I'm speechless:-( I can feel your despair, and only have love, light, well wishes, and support to offer you... I hope it's enough in your hour of need...

So amazing a poem, you are a very good narrator. You make the reader picture the story visibly. This is what makes one a good narrator or story teller. Thanks for sharing, and honestly you made my day.

Dear Lisbeth,

That is so nice of you, else I am not at all a poet. I write what I feel right now.

Dear Sumera,
Your poem is so powerful. I wish nobody in the earth go through the distress and this kind of situation. May peace prevail in the earth.

Dear Anjana,

I swear I am not a poet but since my heart is in pain, it writes what it feels.
