A Small Dagger
I saw a dagger poised to attack,
by Naveed Akram
Foolish men could hear the scariness
Of the suddenness that awaited a
Man of calibre and acuteness.
I saw a separate deal being given
To a manner of a man who dived
Into the pool of his own blood.
The daggers of silvery, slight acts
Manned the seas with deliberate action.
The dungeons of the day were
The nights of the accusations,
Swearing into the ears a penalty.
I saw a dagger so light and weighted
Only a little pound, so slightly weighed.
The waiting was over with the man
Of morbid convictions, his steel was installed.
