Poem: Imprisoned

by Amal Mila Filza


Verily, it is not the eyes that grow blind, but it is the hearts which are in the breasts that grow blind” [Quran 22:46] 

Imprisoned, in a white walled room. 
Tears falling down like bombs in a battlefield. 
This field that once felt so trusted 
Now became a see-through shield. 

Chained, to a poisoned society 
Where escape is made impossible 
and the ransom is not worth the liberty 

Restrained, from the expression of true love 
It is a reflection of perfection, 
yet your sight is left unseen, 
the worst disease, a blinded heart. 

Bruised, from the uttered words 
Words that should have been left unspoken 
Yet you unlocked that door and left me bruised.. 

Hope, a feeling that remains 
My goal is left undamaged 
As I know this hurt too will fade away 
The mercy of my Lord is bound to stay.
