The Beam Magazine presents an English poem ‘Lonely‘ by Nehan Masood.
Lonely by Nehan Masood
It was a snowy evening of winter,
When from my window I noticed a stranger.
For hours he kept sitting on a bench alone,
He didn’t care that it was getting colder.
I was curious to know about the problem,
So I ran out wearing a jacket of leather.
As I approached him, he painfully said,
“Nothing else but, love is all the matter.
I have chosen this punishment for myself,
I have to be alone waiting forever.
But I don’t wanna complain to anyone,
You know, it’s rule, lovers have to suffer!”
I turned silently in a shock,
Not listening to such crap was better.
But today, as I walk in the snow,
Not caring about the extremeness of weather.
Holding some dried flowers in my hand,
Living in the moments which will last forever,
I realize that I also have to wait now,
Yes, of course, it’s rule, lovers have to suffer!
