A decade is gone

Gone down in mist

Where eyes can’t see

And sound doesn’t exist

You’re asleep for centuries to last

Where everyone goes

Forever lost

(Sheen-August 2, 2022)

Today is the tenth anniversary of my husband’s death. The Mercy of Allah on him. Ameen.


My youngest brother disappeared without a trace. Where did he go? No one has any inkling. His close school friends feel he is no more. He hasn’t been in touch with friends, or any family members. His friends think that he is dead, or they would have heard from him.

Whenever I think of him I feel terrible, and sad. I feel helpless at not finding what happened to him. No one has any idea. I feel totally disheartened that a living person can disappear, and no one can trace him, or find his whereabouts. 

I can’t think of him as dead. The last time I spoke to him was on a telephone. I was in a different city. I never heard from him. Calls to the number went un answered. I never thought that it would be our last conversation with each other, and I will never hear his voice again. He is lost to us.

Why are you saying you are sorry

Because I know you don’t mean it

When you don’t mean it

Why say it

Useless words lose their meaning

Worth junk pieces of art

Rememberance of hurt to stab the heart

At the End Of the Day

Daily Prompt: Have you never been Mellow?


What do I need?
At the end of a day
To lie in bed, and read

I get lost in books, many miles away
For me they hold their sway

The characters in books, become my pals
And I see how they fare, from day to day

I laugh and cry, seeing their lives
For me they live, at the end of the day
