Sayonara (Spoken word poem) By: Areeba Hussain
Exuding soporific petrichor no more soothes
It reminds , of her wiping out figure,
dissolving to memories
That day,it rained heavily outside,
yet the torments inside were unrivalled
The thought of bidding her a final adieu ,
quavered my body to soul
It's probably my last ...
It's probably my last .... time I am seeing her , enervated I felt cold
Forever broken, soaked with heavy steps
Forever broken, soaked with heavy steps I walked traipse to make her rest in eternal peace.
With a wish to lie beside her on my decease.
Thank you for reading This poem is depiction of an evocative episode of my grandfather's life,it rained heavily when my grandma died and from that day my nana (grandpa) and all of us felt surges of anxiety before rain .
