You wasted me away

watercolour portrait and poem by Ruqia Ismat :

You wasted me away

What a treasure you wasted

what a soul you destroyed

you tried to make an angel of me

A human angel without wings!

What a human you wasted

What an angel you lost

you built a gilded cage for me

told me what a safe place

what a peaceful abode you had for me !

What a life you wasted

What a beauty you over looked

Told me your cage was heavenly

though modest and silent !

What a heart you locked

What a smile you erased

Life was deception and death was destiny

Did not you tell me?

Death is meaningless without life well-lived

I shouted at that

What a life you hated

What a blessing you refused.
