Poetry from Aasma Tahir

Young South Asian woman with light skin, dark sunglasses, short black hair, and a yellow blouse sitting inside a car.
The Last Resort of Love 

The sand laden winds, 
Lacerate wounds of the heart, 
The chain of breath snaps, 
How much indignant is the harsh wind. 
O! The last resort of love, 
Take me along to such a beach, 
Where I may wash mistiness of my heart, 
So that dust of the brutal city, 
May vanish from the mirror, 
And I should keep on running for a long time 
Towards a far off of land, to a green forest. 
So that I may get out 
Of clutches of the demolishing city, 
Trampling all memories and promises,  
Far away from the city splashed with 
The pollution of heart and mind.   

The wind beckons me 
Humming the song of peace and love, 
To put on my soul the silk of consolation.
