Fatima Nusairat

'The sadness shadow'


I am the old picture, hanging on the wall of memory,
I am the misery of torsos dry,
And I am the sadness shadow who is sitting in the darkness
In the paralytic night!

I am an empty smile, resident in the empty heart,
And I am a sadness of a stranger who lives in a stranger house!
I am the frets frozen in the ice
And I am the abandoned old well
In abandoned houses!
I am the silence who is listening to his moan
Such as the pain entombed far away and far enough!

And I am the shadow of the dream in the picture space!

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;

Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
