Poetry: Adnan shafi

Adnan Shafi

Just flickers and 
Squalls blast 
down the foyer,
Hums across 
the house...
I behold people 
flinging like toys 
the surge of sadism 
rends the probity in 
Bursts through the 
veins into the heart 
and razes the whole 
life in micro-seconds


Through the haze
Of twilight, the 
beams of xii 
flashlights cut 
Meanwhile, a 
dozen maniacal 
lads hurry through 
the gloaming, 
dazzling their 
flashlights around, 
searching me in 
the abyss.

A pen

Holding a pen,
Years of angst 
Cut through a 
Dingy haloes 
under the eyes 
picture a glint filled 
with dead nights ;
Bit by bit encircled 
by dead air except 
for the celibacy.
