Diverted attention

Chasing feathers
Around a halo
Like tender furr
A soft job
Because I mean
What else can you say
When a dart board
Hid magnets around its double and triple rings
Making you
By default

If you ever
Just ever
Listened to what you heard
When your attention was elsewhere
You’d know
Just how wrong
Your own capacity to understand was

The work of a slave
Basic human rights
A silent clocktower
Only screaming to the mutes

There is fault found in the same mud
We swum in when we slithered
Past the pure and past the river
I saw land and sky in
But my own self

Hi. Now that you're here...let's just get this out of the way. I hadn't introduced myself in the past because when I first started this blog, I wanted it to be purely about my writing. This is not, and was never supposed to be, an anonymous blog. However, after almost a year of inactivity, I realize an 'about' section is...necessary? My name's Sadia. I live in Islamabad, Pakistan. Between uni/work/life in general, I try to take time to write. I own all content on this blog. Although, I do NOT own the images posted here, nor do I take credit for them whatsoever. I wanted to thank my visitors, for still being loyal and genuine after this long. In case you want to know more about me for whatever inexplicable reason, ask ahead and I'll get back to you! This right here, keeps me sane. You will find here, sincere thoughts mixed up with a subconscious trying to fuck it all up. I hope you understand. Love, Sadia.

  1. Sadia, very nice poem here. I love the darts metaphor, but my favorite lines: “a silent clocktower / only screaming to the mutes” — beautiful. And hey, I like your blog theme too (I use Libretto as well, so it’s nice to see how someone else’s layout looks using the template — and I like!). :)

    1. Hey! Apologies for the late reply. I hadn’t seen this comment before. Thank you so much, I went back to my original theme because I felt it resonated better with my taste. Love the way you pick out your favourite line/metaphor, makes it all the way more meaningful. Bless. See you around.
