a man that only
wanted my body
held my hands tight
while saying he loved me

a man that could only say he loved me
cause he had nothing else to show me
a man who thought that by saying he loved me i wouldn't need anything else, as if he was doing me some sort of a favor, empty words coming from an empty man

The night is cloudy and the stars don't shine,
The raindrops on the window are illuminated by the cold street light.
Perhaps I would be able to hear the roaring wind
but it is silenced by the tick tock of the clock on the wall.

Maybe, maybe I will write again,
Maybe, maybe I will learn to play a happy tune,
One day I'll forget elegies
And stop making these melacholy effigies

I don't really like rhyming now,
They sound too happy and are sometimes cheap.
I rather write to my poems and say, "Thou
art my biggest mystery, you're too shallow. You're too deep."

So in conclusion,
I don't know why I'm writing.
All I know in this confusion
Is that the night is cloudy and the stars don't shine,
The raindrops on the window are illuminated by the cold street light.

The clock is ticking. Tick. Tock.
The people are hollow,
The people are stuffed
leaning together
Headpiece filled with straw.
"This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but with a whimper. "

Crawled into it and it felt good.
Real good.  Good enough to live in.
Forked tongue slips in and out;
Poison drips, fangs cannot be contained.

Eating all, choking on frogs, going for bigger prey
Until all is gone, gone, gone -
Lining up to pet the snake, feel the skin next to theirs
******* out brains to fill craniums with crap.
And the world has gone mad, bad, and sad.

a man ruins my childhood
a man ruins our sisterhood
a man ruins her motherhood

but it all happened cause
we thought we loved them while
we only wanted to be loved
the only thing you can fix is yourself

Genuine polite and humble men are often misunderstood and tagged as flirty.May be because they are rarest of all the species , I guess.

I was a bigot,
My body wrapped in red and white,
With blue eyes on stardom.

I was a saint,
Satan's servant with a Bible,
A man of God's war crimes.

I was a fundamentalist,
Funding mental lists of hate
With money stolen from the poor.

I was a colonist,
Carving out sacred land
For the benefit of my white body.

I was a misogynist,
Marking my territory like a dog,
******* on the other’s freedom.

I was an American,
A white straight man,
A brutal prodigy of the patriarchy.

I was
As he was,
A lineage that will be broken.

All you want are my thighs
Every night they cry
But you don't care about the signs
If you looked closely you'd see the indentions
From something that had no prevention
But I know you are all the same
A ****
Who just wants to...
Tw:   Suicide

You said that you loved me
That I was a gift from Allah
But really
You are a
In the form of a Muslims clothing
If you really want my forgiveness
You will come
To my autopsy
And my funeral
And if you have
Soul you’ll follow me
And stop goofing off
Sorry doesn’t cut it
It cuts me deeply

‎قلت أنك أحببتني
‎ أني كنت هبة من الله
‎ لكن حقا
‎ أنت
‎ شاذ جنسيا
‎ على شكل ملابس مسلمة
‎ إذا كنت تريد حقًا مسامحتي
‎ سوف تأتي
‎ لتشريح جثتي
‎ وجنازتي
‎ وإذا كان لديك
‎ الروح سوف تتبعني
‎ وتوقف عن الابله
‎ آسف لا تقطعها
‎ يقطعني بعمق
I held the moon

And knew immortality

I traded all my unforsaken days

To move within the eternal orbit of her night

To eclipse death

Yet here then the gap narrowed

The one before took it all from me
I fear that I have nothing left to give
