Painting by Seema Pillay


“The worst thing in life is not to end up alone, but being with people who make you feel alone”

She is scared, She feels shallow,

It feels the depth has vanished

Her inner self feels hollow,

Her emotions were banished

The footstep that follows,

Makes her crave for more

When she turns around to hold,

Disappear and leave her sore

She can’t hear the raging storm

She can’t smell the sweet rain

She can’t hear the howling wind

She only feels the growing pain

The voices sound hoarse

Yes she had screamed and cried

Tried to find the source

To let the pain slide

She heard something, Oh its the silence

The silence so weird, so insane

Now approaching her

She is afraid she will never be back again…

  1. I’m here to read this like I promised.
    You managed to convey the feelings beautifully well, Seema. Especially the deafening silence part. That part rung true to me.
    Are you alright though? I can’t help but be a bit concerned. Do you need someone to talk to? πŸ™‚

    1. Oh Sully, you are such a sweet person. May Allah give you all the girls you posted on your blog posts!! with more and more falafals! I am totally fine πŸ™‚ and I read your next comment as well. Yes you got it right. i empathize and feel for them. But even trying to keep myself in their shoes is sometime depressing. But that’s just for a moment. I dont know how these people live with this feeling…
