Story of Night

a poem by Mirza Sharafat Hussain Beigh

So you are lost in dreams so deep whole night
And I longs to hear phone’s beep whole night

At dawn, I realised, my awakening
Though my destiny remained asleep whole night

I know the remedy, I know the toxin..
What to leave, and what to keep whole night

She might have waited for me to take her back
This is what made me to weep whole night

Sharafat, night is to sleep, not to write
Don’t let enemies to creep whole night
