"Silent Longing"


By Md. Shakil KhanPublished 7 months ago 1 min read

What kind of melancholy is this?

Without you, it's emptiness,

So many thoughts in my mind,

Yet it feels so silent!

Why let anger accumulate like this?

Don't stay far in pride,

Turn around and look back,

I'm standing here waiting.

Dressed in your favorite attire,

I'm sitting for a moment,

Calling you with love,

But you're not coming closer.
