THE VOID

The Void poem by Saba Zain

It’s morning, a naked one
And it’s last night that weighs
Heavy upon my heart
Wounding me
Something bleeds
Under the skin
A torture
A torment
The pain of unspoken
The suffering of silence
The voiceless shadow
Mourns
Inside the soul
A huge gap widens
Rolling and rolling, expanding
Turning into void
I stare at myself
My heart grieves over its coldness
My mind over its ignorance
My soul over its vulnerability
I stare
Petrified
Tormented
What do you call it?
Pity or sighs?
I stare
I shout with no voice in my throat
Will you hear then?
The clutter of voicelessness
The dance of eternity
Over death of meaningless
And rebirth of never-ending yearning
The sharpness of blades
Running of blood
And
Will you witness
A Nothingness
In my eyes????
