Reunited

Six years, a social class or two, a religion and half a country between us

We found each other in a city large for me and small for him

I bought this tall, exquisite stranger a beer, only because I’d had a few myself

And found some courage there.

 

Was the moon full that night as he walked me home, and we sat close on the sofa?

My legs tucked under me, facing him, I asked, “What ...

Gemstone Necklace

Gemstone Necklace

I dare to wander far inside this trove of a head

Without chains around my ankles bounding me to my bed

Though, it sure feels like it

I feel a weight inside my lungs and my chest doesn’t like it

 

In the expansion and decompression

The plasm I bleed

And the skin closes up, it’s all alike

It seems.

 

In solitude, a bed of thin clouds dissolves benea...

Nothing More

I think of you, chastise myself, 

And press your name away

Ignoring, stubbornly, the fact, 

You’re present every day

 

I don’t ask why I cannot help 

But seek your commentary

On every task, or smile of mine- 

A wish I cannot bury

 

I say, embarrassed at myself, 

That this affair ends now. 

This fantasy, this made-up game, 

I cannot keep allowing

 

After...

Turn back the clock

I wish I could
turn back the clock
rewind the time
not think too much
live in the moment and
let the rest
fall into place.

Turn back time,
dance all night
under the starry lights
and pour my heart out.
Instead of turning my back
to destiny.. and you.

Us

With you I feel my heart,
As love began to start.
The two of us shall grow,
Let's take things very slow.

The first moment we met,
I haven't known it yet,
That this is love that I felt,
Until my heart begins to melt.

The time froze like ice,
As I gaze to your pretty eyes.
Truly lovely sight it is,
Your stare to me can move trees.

You have a gorgeous hair,
Also mine, to be fair.

Death Is The Only Song

As the sun slowly slides
through a quickly capsizing sky
you laugh at me for taking photographs
for wanting to record this way of things
do you not feel that this is temporary
do you believe there won't be a different way

These are precious moments
these are precious moments
in our short lives

And with each day that ends 
I feel a larger ending
creeping closer
and with each dusk de...

LITTLE GIRL IN LOVE

I love my brother

I love my sister

I love my mummy

I love my daddy

I love my dog

and I love my cat.

 

I love my granny and granddad

but they've gone on ahead

that's what mummy and daddy reckon

so I have to love them even more

 

'cause granny and granddad are dead.

I'm to leave now

 

By: Ali Taha Alnobani

I'm to leave now

A tall ghost is carrying my bag

A long street is walking behind me

A mad merchant bought my smiles

And no water to renew the dusk

I can't have my step begun

Even if the rain washed my tears

***

I'm to leave now

Can I have a deep look at your eyes?

Can I take my dreams, your smile

And my dried red rose?

Fusion

By: Ali Taha Alnobani
 
He was lying on the grass
Looking carelessly at his watch
He needs to relax
But a voice is slamming his head:
Tick … tick
Seems saying: life is just a trick
***
He took a picture out of his pocket
Ripped into small pieces
Paths and routs
Plants and shoots
Telling the happiness rare story
About the unlucky traveler

paper mache

 

Like lifting lino - underneath

another world revealed.

Adverts for corsets, garden twine

and orthopaedic shoes.

News of a war, or peace in our time.

I move the realistic rocks we made

for the museum. I painted them, grey and gnarled,

but it was you who made the frame.

And stretched between the two

is paper mach...
