Staying Away!

The hope of you calling my name is what keeps my soul alive

Dead I had remained, since you stopped doing so, staying put in your hive

What good is life, if it’s without the vision of seeing you smile
What better way to die, than to look at you glow far from a mile

Surely meaning to things changed, when I first felt your skin
The density of name and fame suddenly lost its touch within my kin

What have me done, that can undo, the misery, I bestowed upon you
My life should go, so shall my flow, if all it takes to finding you

For your image I see in everything that has the world look bright
And I see you smile, moving on, and just wanting me away from your sight

So shall I stay, away from your gaze till eternity I so swear
Nothing but embarrassment and sorrow i shall keep as the only cloth to wear.

The Mock Tale


Then they said I am left with no more

Potion or scent of life for the worldly whore

Heavens transcendent and thoughts unfold

The aim is through the eye no one so told

Pity her skin for she have lost the jewel

Laughter on my face sublime and all is well.

How can my silence be heard by the wordless

Who can hear only the chants of the worthless

So another tale another journey comes to an end

Speaking of which smiles take a bend

And yet again I raise the no more scene

Making no sense to the mindless not so serene

And another journey thus awaits to be discovered

For doors open up when they are to be uncovered.

And so a new night and a new day is to come

New promises to be made and taken home.

Ali Gohar

Myth’s Denial


And the truth that unfold

no god can be so damn cold

no mercy, no blessings, hush!

i can maketh a ton alike in a rush

what shall this tale thus breed

the worst lead or the devil’s steed?

So I shall renounce him all today

for all he showed is harm and hay

my faith has shattered all along

the spark of hate is all so strong

and so my stallion goes for kill

for i have passion i have the will.


Ali Gohar

Mercy Call

Despair makes out its call

the miseries putting you to the wall.

tears stuck in my eyes not to fall

the heart losing up so quick and tall.

the soul departing on leave

what can be worse than this eve?

O lord why have you shunned me?

your wrath has always cornered me.

why can i not make it to you

is the road to mercy closed to you?

if not you that i can ask from

who else then can i seek from?

I may still be up and breathing

my heart may still be beating.

My face may put up a smile

my faith may go the extra mile.

but my body can’t take the blows no more

for you put in your blessings no more.

so please have me get up and rise

for i am left broken in despise.
