Do what you must to ensure they don’t see.

Rationalize and pretend it won’t be.


Wish it away to escape from it all.

Cover it up like the paint on the wall.


Cloak it in layers of varying hue,

carefully crafted to keep it from view.

Make every move just to keep it from sight.

Sweep me off my feet,

Carry me through this dreamlike state, and

Spin me faster than I’ve ever spun before.


Call me yours,

Call me his, hers, or

Call me mine. I do not care.


Shower me with golden rain,

Bathe me in the sin of mortality, and

Let me retain this tiny bit of humanity I still have.


Do not remind me of my greater purpose

For I do not know what...

Heads or Tails

Like a coin

tossed in the air,

chance will decide

whether I will land heads or tails


To have control is almost impossible,

when I think I'm at the top

someone incapable or enviously sick

comes from behind

and knocks me down to the ground


I get up smiling,

starting again;

leaving nothing half done,

that's how I face life;

even when insults rain down ...

Recently I fell into Love
It was an accident
Was it fate?

Things I never

Tuī hé lā

I was the ocean and he was the moon, 

Nature's opposites yet love would sprout soon.

As I push against his gravitational pull 

Though on my axis, my heart's orbit falls. 

Quite often I am his biggest challenge,

But as the ying to his yang he fixes this imbalance.


My spirit soul mate who facilitates my flow, 

Through the high and low tides our love for one another shows.

We Run Like Water

I'm a reptile

But I'm warmer 

When I'm with you

You stir something in me

Like I'm always on the edge of something

There’s a chemical reaction between us

It makes me feel like static energy 

Could we really be the result of chance?

Can chance pull like a magnet?

Or is this kismet?


It runs fast, long, rife

It is our double life

We share a secret world t...

A warmth in her blossomed,

He made her smile from her heart. 

She was too scared to tell him,

So she played the friendship part. 






He stole her affection, like a thief in the night

Unknowingly planting the seed, but she forbid it to see the light. 

Though feelings had already begun to sprout from within,

Her exterior shell then cracked, it...

Not by any means ready

I needed time to prepare

The whole thing rushed

Not even done my hair


Our first date was a joy

You polished up my id

Later it was downhill

Absolving what you did


Stop at such carnage?

Damage far too raw

May as well see it out

Let us call it a draw

Maybe Next Time

Maybe next time,

I will get it right, 

put up more of a fight, 

won’t settle,

take control of my life. 

Maybe next time, 

I will find fortune and fame,

learn how to play the game.

Maybe next time,

I will see it through, 

know the right thing to do.

Maybe next time,

you will love me,

as much as I love you.

Nailed To My Doom

Fate's ways may be kind or wicked

They say Kismet was always erratic

Life's boons may dangle before you

Getting them is far from automatic


The day we met was a normal affair

Until you materialised in the room

That cryptic blur was elemental

Your soul nailed me to my doom


Nailed to my doom I linger on

I've never quite shaken you off

I've prayed often for you ...

I can’t see

But I can dream


It’s like wearing a blindfold

On my brown eyes

I can’t watch, but I can feel

All these weird wild vibes


All these angelic faces around me

But those diabolic souls surround me

Are they real or are they fake?

It’s like watching a blue snowflake

Falling for smiles and grace

All night murdering for a race


I can’t wait

Resistance is futile. 

You will not find rest

as long as I am near, 

whispering in your ear. 


STOP,  right now.

Write now. 


Talk about how 

love echoes 

in the valley of 

lost souls. 


Share your hopes, 

dreams, fears. 


I’m listening, 


ready to bathe you, 

in serenity. 


I am your muse, 

voice of truth,

The greatest things in life cannot be seen,

Like happiness, love and serenity,

Anger, malice, wrath and rage,

I'm sick of these feelings as I grow with age,

There's more to life than being locked up,

Slamming dope and running amuck,

Looking over my shoulders the paranoia doesn't stop,

The fun is all gone and the streets are too hot,

Life on the run has turn into a drag,

I Am Whatever You Want Me To Be

I sliced the sun into two

And looted shimmering bars of gold

Which lined her womb, 

Her beloved broods I stole. 


I plucked the sturdiest mountains, 

The choicest adornments on the face of the globe. 

All it took were my hands, raw and unrestrained, 

Their maimed rubbles now abuse those they adore.


I remember the sea that like Moses I parted

And the ocean floor ...

We've Not Had Fun For Ages

You can have too much of a good thing

When even the taste of caviar palls

Our line is more like periwinkles

We live mostly within these walls


We've not had fun for ages

Lately I've felt an urge to break free

Why not the funfair or Ilkley moor?

If only your specialist would agree


Your arthritis is a bit of a downer

One-way traffic to vegetation

Love Letter to My Muse

All day long 

I think of you. 

I can’t wait to get home 

to be with you,

to feel your ink drip 

between my fingers.

You are my love,

my passion,

my muse.

I know you will 

never leave me. 

We are bound 

by a legacy of words, 

that braids our soul.

Our poetry echoes 

through time and space, 

leaves a soft place 

for broken hearts to land.

Twisted Love

Love once bloomed 
like a fragrant flower
in eternal spring.

Through years of 
torrential summer tears, 
then droughts,

the scent faded.

All that seemingly remains
are scorched petals that drop 
like dead leaves in fall.

But, far beneath 
the frozen surface, 
intertwined roots run deep...

Making our twisted love 
hardy, to weather the 
toughest seasons.

My fate is not in your hand

GOD makes our fates alone

Our life are surely planned

GOD feeds the ant in the stone


World is certainly small

If compared to Galaxy as shown

Whoever believes is a giant

GOD to perish the giant alone


MY heart is calm and glad

Satisfied of what I own

Whatever you earn in the dark

SURELY you'll pay it at noon

Fool me once 
shame on you.

Fool me twice

Fools forever

Dear Muse

Hide away

I don't understand 
what prompts you 
to surface anyway. 

I will do like I always do,

I was put on earth to do,

I know even though you 
fly away again and again 
to do whatever muses do, 

you will come back, 
when I least expect

The choice 

Translation of my Arabic Poem (“The Choice”) 

Who, in the World, chooses his birth? 
Who chooses his family and children? 
Who chooses his fate and country? 
Who chooses the time to go to heaven? 

But it is possible to choose our day 
To sincerely care about family and work 
This will be the first right step to our future 
To achieve our goals while we're alive

Echoes of Life

What are the chances 

of two lost souls 

light-years apart

colliding twice in life?

Astronomical. Yes!

The dance is sweeter, 

with ego out of the way. 

All that remains is love

purified by the same rock-bottom

pressure that turns grains of sand into

pearls, coal into diamonds. 

Not lustful love, agape. 

Godly, unconditional love for humanity. 

Forgiving. Acce...

We were lame and we were young,

Walking in the woods,

While singing our song,

Never in my dreams, felt anything wrong,

Thought you were always coming along,

Do not remember where exactly I lost you,

My eyes searched for you in heavy fog,

I continued my journey amidst the rocks,

Shivered through-out the night,

Darkness was blocking my sight,

Always thought that you wer...

Rose Colored Reality

Too much reality 
can burn a hole
through your soul.

I prefer to temper it
with rose colored glasses,
as you know.

With my glasses on
I can see past the ego
to the wounds at
war within.

I can see that the
past, present, and
future are all 
an illusion...

created for one purpose

to tell the story

She wanted to fly high

But was afraid to fell from the blue sky

She longed for someone

To come along her way

To guide her throughout

She would believe in miracles

If only that someone showed up

She would have been living free

Chained in the shackles

If someone tells you are insane,

And they are telling you there is something wrong with your brain,

It coul be true it could be lies,

If you are pschotic you can tell by your eyes,

If you have caused this by your own being,

Then when you look in the mirror a total basket case,

Is what you will be seeing,

It's easier to believe

than to question fate.

It's easier to believe

It's easier to believe

I remember when you leaned forward, away from me
As if i was a scarlet letter you wish you never bumped into
Back and forth busy re-evaluating all offerings on the table
I bet my name never made it to the highest scores list you've made
Cause you needed to create a whole new category for someone like me

Those strange happenstances and confused look in your eyes

One night, i was cruising in my porsche, with my music blaring, When i noticed this fine girl stood staring.

She was so beautiful, real sexy too,
She approached my ride, right on cue. She knocked on my window and asked for a ride, I smiled at her and happily replied,

Girl you're the one i dream about,
You're the one i cant do without,

In those darkest, darkling months

when both belief and hope were lost

when love was stretched taught beyond endurance

when pain and understanding spiralled


There was some doubt of destiny:

could love be snatched away;

and child a mother lose?

A new reality to supplant all we knew

                                                                        and dreamt.

Falling for a Girl (Man's POV)

When you fall for a girl, your whole world changes.
What you say, what you do, how you think, how you even breathe.
She is the air you take in.
The air you never want to let go.
You do better in class because you love the way her smile makes you feel,
you make lame jokes just to hear her laugh.
You sit in silence because everything she does is amazing.
The way she speaks Spanish, the way sh...

then I damn the hope 
down the hole,

afraid of the rain,

the ever growing rage, 
the crushing despair,

The Parenthesized

Your green eyes are shining in the night of my mind
Thoughts are fading away with the dawn of your smile
Words are sailing away, papers are turning back to trees
And God is lighting his cigarette with thunder while scribbling my fate

God is a poet, I think and his words are people
But I'm parenthesized, that's why you can't read me
Stuck in arrogant sentences or thrown to the end

Butterflies -- 07/2015

What is this?

A flip. A flop.

A rustle of the feathers

Its all bringing back memories

Better times

Better places

Oh, but look at that face!

Heart beating faster

Pitter. Patter.

Quick! Look away!

Don't catch that gaze

It's written all over your face

Play it cool

Don't be a fool

Raise that gate

Shh! Wait....

What is that knocking....

It's fate.

Artificial combustion

Why how is it fantastic?

Fate’s handwriting


Found a crushed paper

Beneath a lovely old book

Like one dropped by blues

Had an enigmatic look


Against questions unfathomable;

Thousand answers it opined

Penned was my name

 ‘Twas stamped as “DESTINED”!!


 I felt a connect,

And flipped a corner,

Bold chevron lines read,

“Seed and then garner”


Ink fluttered to allude

Loud and clear message;

Fearful and Trembling

I slide down a rope
     into the empty chasm 
          which is your cold heart. 
I light a fire

You hate me anyway. 
It rains. 
An ocean is born;

Darkness engulfs me. 
Surrounded by other misguided souls. 
I feel their cages;

would you say you love me too?

But only to build a bridge

The light that shines inside us

the beauty of surrender
