Untitled Poem # 6…
by Talha Minhas
Cigarettes and coffee;
Is what reminds me of you.
I want to take photographs of you all night,
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.
