A letter to you

I wish I had it in me to let you knowthat all of this is just for show.Don’t believe the things I say’cause I walk between the cracks on the floorto avoid lying while holding the truth. Your arms imprison me. I never want to escape your embrace.Your warmth is comforting. You hold me close, … More A letter to you

In an ideal world

In an ideal world, I’d live alone. Perhaps, I’d share a small home with a few people I choose to know, and we’d live together in the afterglow.   In an ideal world, they’d be no fools, who’d kill over earthly jewels, no men of pride and soulless tools, no vengeance or staggering rules.   … More In an ideal world

Please don’t drown | أرجوك… لا تغرق

He whose eyes melted the stars in my skies هدأت نظراته، و لم أعد أعرف ماذا يدور في خاطره. كدت أسأله ولكني ترددت ثم ترددت و أخيراً استسلمت. كدت أمد له يداً  تواسيه و لم أعثر على كلمات تساوي ما أراه أمامي. أين أعثر على كلماتٍ وأنشئ عباراتٍ جديرة بالقول؟ التهمه حزنٌ غامض، وجلست أتأمله و … More Please don’t drown | أرجوك… لا تغرق

Nature’s burden

The birds sing the same songs every morning, the wind dances through the grass, the sun leaves nothing to the imagination. I push myself forward, my heart paces faster, my skin wrestles with the heat. I thought I escaped, but every step I take leads me to the same place. The birds stop singing, the … More Nature’s burden

Heart wide shut

I can love you forever As long as you’re with me when I close my eyes I don’t have to let go but I won’t move and neither will you I’m willing to fight for you, but I’ll never let you know ’cause I’m at peace with superficial connections feeding off the same old conversations … More Heart wide shut

Goodbye

You were a beautiful possibility. You could’ve found a home in me, but the hollowness behind your skin revealed a dark and soulless stare. I never wanted to escape reality when I was with you but you lived in fantasies made of me when the magic was right in front of you. I bet you … More Goodbye
