Cycle of pain

Pain has numbed my senses
My poetry is filled with grief
Will a lover seek joy in me?

I take courage to face this
Past, its fire erupt my soul
Will God calm it with peace?

My fear hums in silence, as
Sorrow echoes my voice
Will I wake up from this?

Words and stories prompt me
To re-live cycle of sadness
Will I ever overcome this?

I gaze up to purify this nafs
With remorse from Him
Will His Mercy befall me?
