I used to read your poems
but lately you don't write
you're silent and aloof
you know that isn't right.
You can't close a door once opened
you can't abolish all your dreams
you're a poet of the heart
mustn't fall apart at the seams.
Say what you can in words
they speak the message true
spoken from the heart
the poems will see you through.
A hermit's not your style
a recluse, you are not
never give up writing
of things that you've been taught.
I used to read your poems
I'd read them once again
if you would send them out
(this one's from a poet friend)

There were days
I remembered
To put my heart on my sleeve.

The other days
I hid it
So deep inside my body
I couldn’t find it for myself.

The terror of anyone finding
Me judging me
Seemed to linger in the air
I inhaled.

تعالي أحبكِ لليلة
أخبركِ فيها
بكل ما كان
يجب أن يقال
تعالي أحييكِ بقبلة
أهديكِ فيها
ألف مقال
تعالى أضمكِ كطفله
وأحمل عنكِ
تلك الاثقال
تعالي أموت فيكِ
ولا حاجة لى بعدها
تعالى أحبكِ لمرة
أكتبكِ فيها
ليس فيها

If I found love
then I would rest

set down my pack
lay down my head

clip my wings
and build a nest

I can't find love
I am too restless

How do I express,
To the people I love most,
That the emptiness I feel
is no fault but my own?

She said "I'm falling in love."

I said "I'm falling apart."
What's the difference?

Growing up you're always taught the dangers of substance abuse

but no one warns you of experimenting with love
