I Was Out Of Words

By Neha Afzaal

I was out of words
When I saw you today
Nothing was same
Everything has changed

I was out of words
When I saw my hands today
They were all empty
Everything has gone away

I was out of my words
When I saw my face today
There was no shine
Every feature is dropping again

I was out of my words
When I saw the sky today
There was a darkness everywhere
Every star is moving away

I was out of my words
When I heard your voice today
Nothing felt in heart
Everything seems different

I Was Falling Down

By Neha Afzaal

I was falling down,
Just like the autumn leaves.
Then you gave me hand and picked me up,
And I got the hope to not give up.

The sky was absorbing the shades of orange,
The field was getting dry and dead,
The lively trees were standing unaided,
The air was getting more restrained.

I was feeling empty,
Just like an autumn tree without it’s leaves,
Then you came and filled the colours of love,
So I could feel the true love.
