Romanticism – Aisha Bibi

I do regard the sky often, wishing upon a shooting star

My name is Aisha Bibi, I am a full time A level student, studying Sociology, Geography and religious studies. Am 17 years old and like to think that I have a lot of extraordinary life experiences.


He has me caged in a sanctimonious romantism

By which a dwindled hope, became a beacon of light

By which I barefaced crave, to be the nostalgic character

Whom he voluptuously gazes at

But I know she couldn’t be me

For I am attainable, so not the one he’s looking for

And not the unattainable like his love, he so loves the unattainable

I do regard the sky often, wishing upon a shooting star

That thou he isn’t mine

Someday in my dream his voluptuous gaze, might free me from this cage

So together we can rescue the goldmine wrecked ship

In which he sails away, treasuring her

And I will treasure the voluptuous gaze

While regarding the sky

So, I can wish upon the next shooting star

Aisha Bibi
