high school girls
noor Sep 5
we play, we play, we play

we play with peoples hearts
we play them like a game

we play with our grades
and end up working like maids

we play with our teachers
giving them a hard time
who cares though, cause whose time are they really wasting?
its mine, its mine, its mine!

we think high schools a joke,
so lets all just play!

we think friendships are fun,
we make a friend, and dump one!

we are pretty, pretty, pretty
and thats all that matters, really

looks and body counts, boys, and purging out

this wont matter in 4 measly years,
so lets all just have fun and enjoy these useless couple of years!
i was seething with anger while typing this

“How much do you love me, 1/10?”

1/10? My love cannot be scaled, measured, or counted.
For it is endless, lasting longer than this dying planet
My love is like the continuous flow of the ocean
My love is like a refreshing glass of water.
My love is spilling through the rims of the cup, overflowing everything around it.
My love is so big, so real, so pure.
My love is 1/infinity. Limitless.
When i say i love you, i mean it.
I mean it more than from just my heart,
I mean it as our souls intertwine.
For we are soulmates, and forever we will be.
My love is never ending, so you’re stuck with me.
i write about love although im not even near being in love

i was
falling in love
but love is blind
and blurs our vision
because eventually we all
fall off the high clouds that love brings us to
and we are always left with scars
that will bleed
until someone else
decides to bandage me up
and bring me back
to those
high, high clouds.

sadness begins to feel
when happiness begins to feel
does happiness even exist

i smelled your rose
and thought of you

you smelled my rose
and thought of her

i grabbed your rose
grasping onto the thorns
not caring the blood that flowed

you held my rose
and dropped it
as soon as the prickly thorn
poked your soft skin

you dropped it
and grasped hers instead

my flower
noor Mar 5
you gave me a flower
as it bloomed into a beauty

my flower was beautiful
it shone brightly under the sun
conveying its beauty to everyone

my flower smelled so sweet
that even the honeybees would come around
thinking it was a treat

but soon

the petals on my flower
began to darken

the petals on my flower
began to wilt

and finally

the petals on my flower
fell off
one by one

reminding me that
something so beautiful and sweet

will always be temporary

bottomless fall
noor Mar 5
i keep thinking
this is it
ive hit rock bottom

but im always proved wrong
by this endless pain
and this endless fall
still falling

crying out for help
just for no one to hear
leads me to think
dying out of despair
would have no one care
my existence means nothing

i am not lazy
im just a little hazy
because lately its daily
where im drained

i am not lazy
i am just gloomy
cause its so lonely

i am not lazy
im just drowning
all i hear is shouting
all i see is frowning

i am not lazy
im just crying
im just dying

i am not lazy
i am just stressed
this seems to be a downward spiral into depression

confined in my mind
confined in this 4 squared wall of mine
confined with chains
confined with no way to escape
confined till i take my last breath
till i meet my death
theres no way to really explain this

dead while breathing
noor Feb 8
many people have died
and their loved ones have grieved

i have also died
and have also grieved

for the girl i once was
who is no longer with me
ever since this pandemic began ive slowly lost myself more and more. i think the old noor is gone forever. i cant seem to find her.

broken beings
noor Dec 2020
it was a disaster from the start
but we concealed our banter
and tried to heal our hurt souls with each other
but we should have known
that two broken beings
could never in the end
win with both our demons defeated
only one of us won
while the other was weakened

the balloon you let go
noor Nov 2020
you let go
of your balloon so easily
not even looking up
to see where its gone

i grasped onto my balloon
until it slipped from
my hold
i followed it
until i could not see it
any longer

pure beauty
noor Nov 2020
being beautiful
in sight of my creator
is more fulfilling
than being beautiful
in the eyes of its creation
today was my very first day wearing the hijab and i absolutely loved it

it begins with a seed
noor Aug 2020
self hatred is like a seed
that has been planted  
that grows very slowly
without even realizing
you have watered
and let this tree grow
the tree
it towers over you
into darkness
and hides the sun
that radiates love

mommy says
noor Apr 2020
she looks in the mirror
and loves what she sees

she loves herself.

don't wear that
don't eat that
don't say that

im saying this because
i love you
mommy says

she looks in the mirror
and takes a second glance
convincing herself
she loves what she sees

she thinks she loves herself

you look fat
lose some weight
why can't you just look
like your sister

im saying this
because I love you
mommy says

she looks in the mirror
and stares
hating what she sees

she hates herself
i am she
noor Feb 2020
i look up at the moon
wondering if you're seeing the same
or if you're seeing the sun
but one day
we will see the same
one day
we will be under the same roof
in the same bed
as lovers
who use to see different
i felt embarrassed writing this.

divided up
noor Feb 2020
we all were humans until
race separated us
the money in our bank accounts classified us
religion divided us
we all bleed the same
so why cant we see the same?

the dark cave
noor Jan 2020
i open my eyes and see darkness
i try to move but i cannot
i scream for someone to notice me
but no one hears
i realize
that i am in a dark cave
inside the deep corners of my mind
ive been very sad lately and i am not sure why or how to feel better
Jan 2020 · 201
noor Jan 2020
your voice
was like a lullaby
that put me
into a peaceful sleep
every night
but now
you are an absentee
i sleep unperturbed
because my lullaby
is the only one
that i need

not a poet
noor Jan 2020
i am scared
of what you all think of me
that i am not real poet
that what i create is not good enough
that what i write is not valid
"this is not what you call poetry!
this is just a sad sad tale
called your life"
i dont know where this is all coming from but i just started feeling really insecure in all of my work all of a sudden...

a little insane
noor Jan 2020
people say
that love is the only thing
that money cannot buy
but love is the only thing
that can buy the wealth
of my sanity
lately all ive been writing is related to love but im not even in love

this fall
noor Jan 2020
the breeze gently caresses my hair
they freeze my tears, and any tears threatening to flow out
this time of year always makes me the saddest,
yet the cold weather always finds a way to try to cure my sadness
since you have not been here to take that role anymore
maybe i am just trying to find ways to comfort myself this fall
but i can feel the cold wind hug me
letting me know that its okay that you're not here
because now i have discovered a new friend
a new partner
it is no longer you and i
it is i and the world
i wrote this back when it was fall

the heart is foolish
noor Jan 2020
your words were like poison
your words were so addicting
"i love you"
but i should have known that your poison
would strike my heart
right after my brain

loving eyes
noor Jan 2020
the heart is fragile
there is a reason its shielded by a cage
the heart needs the eyes of a person
who knows love
so do not hand such a delicate thing
into the hands
of the blind

the moon or you
noor Jan 2020
tonight the moon looks particularly big
I look up and smile
it feels so close but yet is so far away
I stand on my tiptoes and reach for the sky,
knowing full well that
I will never be able to reach it

to reach the moon
I will have to take great lengths
to reach there
I will have to change myself.
prepare myself for the trip up there
but it is so close

why can’t I just reach it?
why can’t it just come down here?

oh, how foolish of me to think that
something so beautiful
would ever come down here
especially for me

maybe I am not speaking of the moon
maybe I am speaking of you

but both things are so far away
I will never reach either of you
but honestly, id go to the moon and back for you.

my suit
noor Dec 2019
i am living in a suit
i have been for quite some time
the real me is underneath
but i cannot break through
this has become apart of me
that i cannot get rid of
i cannot retire from this suit
and this is because
of food

the flower that broke me
noor Nov 2019
a flower has bloomed.
you cherish it. you water it,  give it so much sunshine.
you give it all of your attention.

but as time passes this flower has begun to  change color.
its losing its beautiful bright color and is becoming dry.

could it possibly be dying?
no you won't accept it.
it will not die, as it brings you so much happiness.
you will not let this flower go.

but despite all of your efforts, one by one, each petal falls.
until finally, there is nothing at all.

you cry.
you mourn.

how could this have happened?
you watered it and gave it all the sunshine it needed.
why did it not stay?

it knew how happy it made you but still
it perished
but one day you witness another flower bloom
one that was exactly like the last

but could it die again?
will it make you so happy for it to one day just die?
you don't trust it anymore, as it broke your trust last time.

it left you.
it hurt you.

how could something so beautiful just wither away?

this is why i don't love.
because one day it'll die.

just like my flower.

— The End —
