She spread her arms and embraced me
that familiar scent made me smile
I noticed the wrinkles on her arms
and my heart ached

she spent half of her life
preparing what's best for me and still..
she is here
comforting me at my worst

My eyes welled up as i held back my tears
thinking of all the things i couldn't do for her
My heart pounding in a rhythm
thinking of all the best things for her

As she got up to bring me my favorite snack
tears finally escaped my eyes
wiping them away quickly
i promised to myself

I'll never leave you maa
That one perfect woman in our life

spinning around in an office chair
with a cup of dandelion tea
listening to love songs
and reading of Gilgamesh

I think of you
and the whitish sun that peers gently between the blinds
I can't imagine being anyone else
or loving another soul

incense burns in the other room
with its curling trail of silvery smoke
I ascend
into the shaky bliss

whether we're friends or something more
I feel alive for the first time
I devote myself to you
and I hope you do the same

I wanna watch her skate again and again
and argue with myself about what's more beautiful.

The smooth stokes she does
or the grinding sound of her blades biting the ice.

The way those white boots fit her perfectly
or the beauty who doesn't know how confident she looks.

I wanna watch her skate again and again
and argue with myself about which resembles her the most.

The mountains in the back covered with snow
just like her filled with joy.

The frozen ice glistening under the rising sun
just like her in the middle of the world.
One Day, My Love
adi t sabal Feb 10
the blades of time will slice your throat
and leave you dry, all flesh and bone
and worms will eat what will remain:
your eyes, your tongue, your skin, your pain
Valentine flower
All that every girl wants for valentine
But you are all that I want each day of my life
Like everything I desire in embedded in you
I hope you choose me over flowers
For unlike them, I'm here to last
But you are my valentine flower
Red like the roses
Beautiful like the lilies
And you are your own vase
Instead of water, I wanna pour my love unto you
That it sticks your roots firmly in the soil
Helps your branches rise
Keeps your petals always attractive
I wanna to be your dream come true
Your best defence
Your everyday inspiration
I want to help you with everything you plan to do
That you do it knowing you are not alone
That I'm always close whenever you need me
I can't promise to stop with the compliments and stares of you whenever you walk
For I know you are the one for me
I don't need to look any further, I just have to focus on what's in front of me
I wanna share everything of mine with you
My smiles and my pain for only you understands me better than anyone else

we played doom music on our drive to the shops.
the deafening sound
of heavy guitar chords ringing in my ears reminds me of our happy days.
adventures into new found city escapes,
guitar hero living rooms,
night spent; endlessly filled with talking.
years together, yet still so much to discover between each other.

the deafening sound,
reminds me of our happy days.
almost enough that i forget the bad.
i hope one day,
thundering music,
reminds me of blissful memories;
happy days of a once beautiful love.

maybe one day,
we can find our own peace,
and these memories can still be our dearest treasures,
from our first love.
my first love hurt me deeply. though i don’t love him anymore, i hope one day he and i can look upon our first love as a beautiful memory we both shared together.

against the soul

not to feel
is a blissful martyr
a blissful martyr
ie a collective connection not  a sacrificial lamb
Mark Oslo Jan 25
From the heavens the moon watches,
Dwelling among swollen stars.
Its fair light washing over the cities,
Upon which young lovers wish,
To unknown shores the waves carry bliss,
Burying imminent grief underneath.

The night has confided in me its secrets,
Revealing my paralleled selves.
We are all privileged, being depressed or anxious is hypocrisy itself
I've sat and thought ,
Time affirms knowledge
Though i am not my awarness,
I feel wired to a hidden intelligence,
Unfamiliar images, imagination,
Everything is a lesson,
Unlearn it to reach the destination

Gratitude brings bliss and peace of mind
do not underestimate the advantage of being ALIVE

Words Of Harfouchism

Between judging the good and the dead,
I lose myself in the cacophony of lies, made my men,
Amid the hustling and jostling of interests, lies and deceit
I scream!
my voice is muffled by a black cloth,
which covered eyes of Themis, now unfurled, tied my voice,
So, none can hear, my cries,
I am a man, I have a spirit, my bliss cannot live in lies and deceit!

I lose myself, split of a second,
A place where I find solace for my heart,
Split second of servitude for God,
And that is enough! To lead me away from temptations!
I look at men in blood, fresh, for petty wealth, and I see God!
I look at black coats, standing for Good and evil for wealth, and I see God!
Who am I to judge?
I see and witness unfurling of time, and my mind rests at His foot!
For all is lights and shadow!
I am at peace, being a witness of His work.
Om Tat Sat!

I wrote my emotions, having received an acknowledgement of my one liner, "so true, manifesting good thoughts by a judge" I ponder, as we trapped in worldly struggle, still find time to love and pray, and think good for others! what is it if not a 'prayer', and that split second of bliss, makes us see all as God, and self as witness, where happiness is in servitude!
