I'm retrieving my life back
I'm putting my phone down
Escape the digital world
And be present.

Easier said than done.

It's hard,
When you have a lover  
A thousands of miles away.
The only means for connection
Is digital.
give me you
horizon blue
take my soul away
see you just far away
give me thyself, even for far away

Rubayiat Al Thurab (Verses of the Dust) – 51

BismillahIr RahmanIr Raheem

Not too far Nor as well near,
All my path drives towards you,
Every possible path conveys,
A valuable lesson to me.

Either its a eternal love or divine folly
All path, drives towards You’
Oh My Beloved! Oh My Loved One!

Allah Khair….. Khairul Rabul Alameen Yah Arrahmanur Yah Raheem

Rubayiat Al Thurab (Verses of the Dust)
gabrielle Feb 9
i love you
and you may not love me

but at least
we're on the same sky
so near, yet very far
Tanya Feb 7


I looked through every playlist,
with a hope to find You in the songs
to hear Your voice, track You in melody
Let my ears enjoy;

I searched for You in the cabin
where the book You gave me lays
I found You in some poems but then
You’re somewhere, far away;

Maybe You are hiding in the t-shirt,
I can sense You there,
only scent is what I find -
I search for You again.
Stay sad Feb 6
When you get older
Plainer
Saner
Wil you remember
All the things
You lost on us
It hurts me
More than you'll ever know
Wish i could go back
To the days i was lost on you
Night full of stars
Adrenaline rushes
The bittersweet taste of your lips
A cold gust of wind outside
Cigarette smoke around our faces
Eyes light and glister
Wrapped up blankets
Two glasses of malt whiskey
A fire in the burning in the hearth
And in us
A comforting arm
A comforting smile
It was good
But perfect can never stay
They pushed me,
And you away
You came back
So please come in
And help me remember
When you were lost on me
If I let myself
Love you
3pm
Water flows down from your cheeks
sleeves up until the elbow
familiar hairy legs
every evening is the same.

That brown eyes never even look at me
near to god far from community
prostrate in musollah at three
from afar I'm seeking.

Husky voice, teary-eyed
softly, the prayer recitation begin
cupping dark skin hands
on the red carpet, red carpet.

Exit after feeling relieved
old shoddy shoes on the sidewalk
smiling like a Cheshire cat
waiting for me and said
"see you tomorrow at 3pm".
Arianna Jan 24
Strolling through the tide,
The ocean flirts with my ankles,
Kissing my toes,
Luring me into its cerulean embrace.

Then, grabbing my knees,
She throws herself at me
Full force, tearing the shore
Out from beneath...
Walked too far into the sea once, and may have just managed to avoid being swept away.
OTP Jan 21
Is it possible I feel her from all the way from here?
That I can feel her touch even though she's not near?
If you say no, you're lying, 'cause I swear I feel her hand, and can hear...
her voice saying I love you, like when I'm close to her, right here, in my ear.
There is no such thing as distance, you're everywhere with me.
