two aphorisms and two monostichs by Faiza Nasir

A poet’s heart is like a chrysalis, pain emanates the butterflies of words out of it.



Sometimes, silence echoes through the poem and rattling guitar.



Hope… Ah! What a hopeless word it is.



We should often fall in love with flowers to keep the human inside us alive.
