The Songstress

To drift each night with loneliness
Embark on a journey of solitude
and walk into live dreams of times I rued.
Oh! What a delicate life and such distress!
Yet I wake each morn; a petit songstress
to flutter and sing songs in multitude.
Each day a varied perch and altitude,
and a will to put myself to redress.
Come come o winter, and I shall trespass
a barn to bid time and write anew;
a song-a-day for each new sunrise.
Come come o misery and I shall surpass
all your determined promises untrue;
and drown you out with each song’s reprise!

– Sameen

    1. Thanks Fayesal! 🙂 I sent you the link, now you try writing one too. Next up, let’s try a different style of writing!


  1. Some very solid poetry there. It is no doubt a gift to express yourself with such brevity, eloquence and poise.

    I have had the chance to read some of your other works in the past. But this one’s definitely superior to everything I recall in my mind.

    You should try getting in touch with Prasoon Joshi! 😉

    (And I very much doubt a reply would be forthcoming! 😉 )
