Untitled Poem # 6…

by Talha Minhas

Cigarettes and coffee;

Is what reminds me of you.

I want to take photographs of you all night,

All day.

Stories of drunken days,

An old love song,

That is what I want with you.

My expression has failed me,

To remind me what I have.

And now, all I do is just sit and wait;

For the time when I can “spit-out

All the butt-ends of my days and ways”

Don’t let me get confused;

I never thought I could be so obtuse.

Left-out in my thoughts;

I could never see what I had to say.
