"Hostage" by Maslina Arshad


By Maslina Arshad

no one should be 
held hostage
to dreams died
and love gone wrong
let her go
to be 
happy as you are

Listen to the poem:

Creative processMaslina Arshads: I wrote this after reading a blog, when I came across the line “no one should be held hostage”. It is the worst of such kind when you are not physically trapped but held imprisoned by emotions.

Maslina Arshad is a closet poet who is also a lawyer by day. She loves reading and is especially blessed to have married a fellow bookworm. She loves watching the rain fall, staring into space for ideas to form into words. She has been writing since many moons ago but never submitted anything to anywhere, until the existence of this webzine. She would love to publish the rest of her work someday. In the meantime she is happy chasing her son chasing the cat, somewhere in the middle of a town called Temerloh. Visit her blog, to see more of her work.

Maslina has two other poems here.
