Sleepy escape

Muneeza Hashmi at Karachi Literature festival  told us about Faiz sahb being an escapist.

When in Beirut there was a war and bombs were thrown in their whereabouts, he used to find escape in sleep. Every one around  him used to wonder how he could do that.

Surprisingly I don't.

The only thing that surprised me hearing all this was that I wasn't alone. Sleep has been such a generous friend, helps me to close my eyes and let me flow in oblivion. Before the clock struck that dangerous hour of the night to flood back memories, I am secured in the arms of sleep. And i refuse to even dream.

Faiz sahb wasn't alone. I tend to find refuge in sleepy escape too.
