Pneuma by Hafsa Mumtaz

Quaz | November 16th, 2021 | poetry | No Comments


malaise – disconcerted lizard’s tail in laceration
faceless white walls – a blank sheet of paper –
sibilance, obscuring sounds, kenopsia
composure – petrified heart thundering & wisping
acrasia – a spray of blood that quenches the thirst –
sonder, anechoic heart, madness
solitude – the scent of dust apricating afloat
nostalgia – forlorn eyes swimming in splendid past –
peculiar bond, meraz, transcendence
night – twinkling effervescence on caffinated ceiling
day – peace gleaming like diurnal star in the soul –
existential shackles, spirit’s apogee, chaos
