every night she waited

every night she waited
by Maslina Arshad

every night she waited
until dawn came
for caresses
for his breath on her neck

glimpses of faded intimacies
she waited
he remembered,
those days far ago
when all they had was one another

waiting in vain
for someone else's heart
had him now

Listen to this poem:

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.
