No Room for Jokes

Last Chance

Written By: Hameem Hussain

Someone rang the bell.
Too late for someone to come. 
I put down my book.
I wonder who came. 
Because that's not the time
Happiness usually chooses to come over. 
My heart skipped a beat. 
Paid a silent prayer. 
May Allah not destroy, 
This sand castle I live in.
May not someone come 
And tell me that things are no more
The way the used to be. 
I made to the door
Scrutinized in the dark. 
No one stands out side. 
Some children made a joke. 
But my heart keeps wondering
What if, the next time, it is not a joke ?
