Saba Mahjoor


a hollowness inside
slowing down of everything
an awareness of every heartbeat
darkness of the back room
a comfortable blanket
drying up of lips
uncontrollable tears
staring into empty space
bouts of confusion
sudden rage
feeling of loss
his eyes sinking further into their hollows
nervous twitch of his lips
pain in his eyes
a darkness that covers his face
standing at the edge of a deep well

Saba Mahjoor is a doctor turned student of English literature based in London.
