Halloween or Hollowness

Halloween or Hollowness

written by: Nazam Riar

 

Oh! It is Halloween again
and yet nowhere to bury my pain
another year
like past so many
the soreness still runs
in my soul besides each and every vein
this world continues to play
trick or treat with my existence
and this life spooks me
and even my shadow insane
you honor the dead but why not the alive?
what sadistic pleasure in it do you thrive?
anyhow, I witch you a Happy Halloween
my piquant pumpkin
you Alas! are the apple of nobody’s eyes.
