the mind conceives thought
for imagination to be born,
yet fantasy is forsaken
and reality fosters the heart

truth be told
mortality is a mess,
for what awaits the soil
may rest in its ruins
Emaan Masood Apr 19
unpredictably of the future
birthing a nightmare

diversity of thought
counters the heart

lack of sleep
stretching the night

annihilation of the past
cleanses a soul
Emaan Masood Apr 8
i reached for you,
held you in my arms
you breathed in my scent
and it brought you calm

your eyes met mine
they gleamed with pride
you soaked me in
your soul tied to mine

i was a fool
the blame is mine
you were right in front of me
all this time

you had my back
i took the fall
not thinking twice
if we'll make it out alive
Emaan Masood Mar 30
how soothing it is
to let go of the past;
a sigh of relief,
and no trace of grief

i always thought
i weighed too much
too naive to learn
this was never my concern

it's such a relief
being free;
a peaceful night's sleep,
and a blissful dream
Emaan Masood Mar 30
for a split second
your eyes bore into mine
for there's an evil inside
who once was a believer

your aura lifted mine
under that vast sky
for you're dead inside
who once survived

you whispered secrets
you were at fault
for you to fail
who once was a vault

there's a knife in my back
with my blood on your hands
for you to disown
who once was your own
Emaan Masood Mar 29
you were a part of the lies
i grew up in

you were a part of the curse
i grew up to

you were a part of the destiny
i grew out of
Emaan Masood Feb 5
they weren't meant to separate us
all i wanted was to know if you'd still climb them
to reach me

yes, i'm talking about the walls you thought i built around me
