the ugly writers


Inspiring, intriguing to write poetry Like clear water And my favourite mug of coffee

BLUES is a poem written and shared by Maryam H. Viqar to The Ugly Writers for the month of March 2020.





She flew

Parading with the stars above

Conspiring gladly with

The seasons in love

She floated gracefully

On the surreal seashores

And the deep blue waters

Swelled at her touch

She Went to sleep always

Watching the lustrous skies

In the lap of the hills

dreaming of someone’s eyes

She had a name

Full with

titles fancy

And I yearned

To be her, for all the world to see.

But I

had a ground,

Dusty and rocky under my feet

To walk on

I could not glide

And i ran mercilessly

For years and years,

I kept thinking

What could have been

But then

I found shelter

In someone’s gentle eyes

And a moon, pale, frail

but Satiated and content

Outside my stained glass window


to write words with an

Endless flow

Like a clear water drop

Like a smile that makes

You stop

Here was

my favourite coffee

Still steaming

Beside a newly bought

violin polished in

the serene shade

Of sun

bursting through

Skies in spring

And an autumn bound journal

Marked with last year’s leaves

Therein a song


A new language sleeps

Shall I ever forget

What dreams

Nestled in my eyes?

Years ago

What dreams?!
