Poetry 2017 Shortlist, Javeria Kausar

Past (Diatelle)

Javeria Kausar

Make you  cling
Force you  to  stay
Leave you  crying,  writhing
The pain  won’t  stop  or  go  away…
They bind  you  to  a  world  sad,  dull  and  grey
Where you have  to  live  under  the  shadows  they  cast
Whimpering, lamenting under  their  sway
Hope?  You won’t find a  single  ray
Pessimism keeps  piling
As past  replays
