Don’t Need Telephone Wires Where You’re Going – by Dhiyanah Hassan

“Don’t Need Telephone Wires Where You’re Going” Graphite

“A World Apart” Ink and watercolour

“When It Happens To Me” Nylon-tipped pens and pen

Take away a thing that matters,

a helpful thing,

that made you feel whole,

And you’re left with that constant

nagging teasing mocking

of the will-I-see-you-again’s,

of what-will-I-do-without-you’s,

the why-did-you-leave’s,

what-did-I-do’s or what-have-I-done’s,

the how-could-I’s,

and ultimately,


lose you?

They’ll eat you alive

these carnivorous thoughts,

and leave holes,

everlasting reminders of what you’ve lost,

till there’s not much of you left,

till you’re a lonesome swiss cheese of a person

Till you, too, are lost.
