Bring Me the Night – A Poem By Nasrin

i see my sister

      rolling on snow

            to put the fire out.

i see the snow melt

      at her touch

            on her tongue.

she runs

      to the snow-man

            we made together.

i see her

      burying her face

            in his chest.

i see my father

      petrol can

             in his hand

looking at her


             she’d dishonoured him.

bring me the night

      tell the snow

              to stay in the sky

its lights


               my eyes.
