This work has reached the exceptional level
An honest conversation with whoever reads this!

Welcome, kind reader!

by Aaqib Naeem

Welcome, kind reader, to this particular piece
Have a seat, sit down, be at peace
Let's break the fourth wall and be direct
Be my guest, sip some coffee, let's interact!

My name is Aaqib as you can read
A few minutes of your time is all I need
Trust a stranger and hop into my shady-looking ride
I am a ghost and your self-anointed tour guide!

If not for these words I may as well not exist
Read that line again, oh, I insist!
Clouds of uncertainty hover over my fate
Please don't creep out we are barely past the gate!

This is my mind, the window to my soul
Whenever I try to focus, it goes for a stroll
Perhaps it likes playing, loves a good troll
Sick of its shenanigans as my life pays the toll!

That right there is my beating heart
Has a mind of its own like its counterpart
My beloved whom I follow without fright
Even when it leads me to my very plight!

My soul is up next awaiting its turn
Made in heaven but in hell it could burn
A bitter darkness envelopes my inner light
Sometimes I wonder why I even fight!

If you have reached this far, stay a little longer
Just by appreciating my effort, you will make me stronger
Readers are rarely aware of the power they hold
You get to decide whether my work is crap or gold!

My rant is nearly over so let's exchange greetings
I love your random visits, our sporadic meetings
Thank you for reading and spending the time
I hope you liked the content, the rhythm and rhyme!

You can leave now, remember to shut the door behind
If you liked what you read, just push rewind!
I must lie in wait now for the next reader
In this never-ending parade, I am the ringleader!
