love (Remove filter)
Your boot is pressed against my neck
While you peer into the horizon,
A beautiful symphony of warm and cool colors
Creating a mesmerizing dawn.
My gasps of anguish are muffled by your song.
I don't know how to get to my knees,
Let alone stand, but I'll try.
My face grinds against the ground
Attempting to make sand of stone.
You press down harder against my neck.
The pressure is astoundi...

Two lovers traveling
meeting in the East
was letters inked
Now here embodied
will they know what to do?
She wakes him one morning, saying
'let's take a boat to an island
let's rise above the Bangkok smog'
Bike beneath them spluttering
her arms knitted around him
they race from bay to beach
chasing the burning sun
with hair wet and smi...

Let's take a moment to reminisce.
Look into my eyes and speak the words you have within,
Express yourself to your deepest core,
Speak until you feel you have no more words...
Let me know how you feel.
My heart skips a beat,
Before it begins a rhythmic dance,
As I gaze into your eyes,
Into your soul,
With so much love it aches.
I am home whenever I am with ...

sometimes i wonder how we got to this point
a point where you wonder whats the best
a point where you want to restart and forget
because i thought we're doing our best
giving all the love we have left
but look at us now,
one has left and doesnt have any regrets
and the other one stood still, full of questions.
shes waiting, waiting and reassuring him that she believes.

Hi, she said with one big sigh, the day was difficult and she held in her cry
She was shy but always found her way with the bad guy who always liked to lie
Wishing for something new b/c she wanted to finally turn the blind eye
On her cycle of men; realized that it was her making herself feel this way, she was high
On the fact that someone was always there but still felt lonel...

She was the one constant throughout his life
His endless reference to existence
From infancy she reflected him back at him
She was his world, the very reason he lived
She gave birth to him, ejaculating him into the air
For the first time he felt separation from her wet womb
But their connection was permanent
She was as much he, as he was him
Her brilliance dazzled...

kiss me on the mouth
let me be; set me free
to be trapped against you
pain I wish nothing on
to wrap arms you know
i can not deny
when to hold her brings joy
let me know
let me be; set me free
wish against me not away
to understand nothing is a void
unhappiness be where you know not
do not fight, my love
endings to soon to show
but listen to direction and ...

down the aisle
a fairy tale
i don't need
to be dazzled
or live in

monsters under the bed,
voices in your head.
rainy days, lonely nights,
the blame game.

All this time,
reminded of the thyme tea I drank,
as I was talking to you.
And all those stories I've heard,
from liars and thieves,
about you, not being who you say you are.
Can't even drink my favorite beverage,
my mind being leveraged,
by the thoughts of another summer without you.
mind messed up from beer portrayed as a liquid savior,
yellow at ...

Through the kitchen, down the hall, in the last room on the left. There's a box in the closet. Small and square, behind some sweaters. Safe in a quiet place, yet always on my mind...
More than just a trinket, it's like an amulet
For when I hold it in my hands, my head and heart forget.
A talisman of testimony, to what was once so true
This tiny little object that makes me think of...

I try to ignore the gaps between us
But I fail miserably
This vacuum too huge and anti-gravity everywhere
When I'm rooted you're soaring
I would be lying if I say it didn't hurt
Cause it hurts like daggers to my heart
We may have our differences
But in the end it's hard to say goodbye
Spaces between us, grins before
Now forced smiles and chuckles
Hoping for the best i...

I was not there when he was made
I was not there when he was born
I was not there for his first birthday
I was, there to guide his first steps.
I was there when his mother voiced her disdane and pushed him away.
For the tantrums that felt eternal
The sick days that became my sick days
I was there as his father began a new family and forgot about his last.
When he had no food to...

The end is nigh
And here am I
On the edge and trembling
Who will catch me if I fall
Who will be there for it all
The one who stays from end to end
The one who I can call my friend
The one who loves me true and through
The one who knows just what to do
When the end is nigh.
The end is nigh
And here am I
Cascading through the follies
Who will help me find ...

Life is too full of people
willing to share their soul
to focus on those who
aren’t open to your light.
You were meant to soar with eagles,
not wallow with nocturnal wildlife.
While they may be beautiful,
they thrive in darkness,
a place you escaped long ago.

When I was 7 years old, I went with my mother to visit her friend. I heard a dog bark when we knocked on the door. I love doggies! "Where's your doggie?" I asked. "I put him out back. He's an old police dog and isn't used to kids."
"Stay away from him," my mother warned.
Despite her warning, I went in search of the doggie and found him chained to a stake in the ground, head down, dark eyes...

My health insurance got cancelled last week.
I do not want to hear.
I do not care that I can
reinstate it today.
I do not care that I emerge
five days later, insured
I am not grateful for the miracle
of good health which
is not a small miracle.
I do not want to hear
that I have to do it all
My back-up man is gone—
the one ...

The trees still sentinel stood
their green leaves whispering
rustling gently in the wood
in the same soft breeze
and I know some summer birds
sang in their canopy
a requiem without words
'neath the same blue sky
that through every passing year
quietly watched over me
safe within Ceredig's sphere
It has been too long a time
since our firs...

Twice she looked, and smiled
I said: "Hello"... She replied
Before she leaves, I said: “see you”
She became blushed as the bride
Again, we met after a minute
I heard her lovely sighs
I said: "you are....", she said: right”
Shaking hands by sight
Purely, she asked to know
Are you Farag, Are you poet
I said true. But again we met
To inspire me to write
Tuesday 9th April 2019 12:17 pm
know i can
turn to you
when in need
in the face
give me air
when i can't breathe
always right there
when i need relief
stop the bleed
when my heart breaks

If I could take the thoughts you most like to think
And sculpt them into text that speaks to you as art,
If I could take the feelings you most want to share
And mirror them in words, reflected in your heart,
Then would you more easily forgive my selfish pen?
Excuse the vacant looks, the lost half-hours when
I am not yours, as I wander some distant mental shore?
If you liked my...

The prompt for day six of NaPoWriMo was to write a poem dealing with counterfactual conditionals, as it were. Here is mine:
Accepting an Infinite Regression of Causes
If only life had come into being
On different terms, according to a different template.
If pain weren’t the primary motivating factor
For keeping life propelling itself forward,
If the best of all possible worlds weren’...

Nancy comes in my dreams
Like a fairy of Disney Land
Have two wings and song
Touch hearts with no band
Nancy comes from the moon
Where the lovely stars shining
Calls me to join the song
And to share her in the dancing
Nancy, I love you so much
Can you call me only once?
Don't keep me in dreams
Just come in real to dance

Fool me once
shame on you.
Fool me twice
shame on me.
Think it through
before you give up
for a moment
in the sun
on the sinking ship
Tuesday 2nd April 2019 6:55 pm
after the fall.
No longer valued,
or wanted at all.
Enter the ancient
mending art of
where the broken pieces
are filled with gold.
Alas, they are stronger
a sight to behold.
How befitting God
did the same thing for me.
Filled my shattered heart
with His love, mended me.
It’s stronger now.
