Running my fingers
Along the frozen walls,
A feeling that lingers;
To a house, its doors.
I stare out at the melting
Burning Sun
A fire too intense;
At its distance,
On my skin, a warmth almost a hum.

The Sun is too close, too close

Foreign is the feeling of the hum,
Dancing on my skin,
Never delving deeper some.
My mind can only wonder,
Sunlust echoing in my gaze as I
Cross my legs and enjoy
The cold while basking in the Sun.
Neither overly warm
Nor am I frozen to the touch;
I have faded into the cold
And currently, I have no plan
Nor rush.

welcome to my wilderness years
spent trapped with hope and fears
dressed in a veil of toxic tears
riding a cycle of life which veers
towards anxiety's extreme frontiers

front ears, the most eerie of ears
in an era of lost working careers
careering to a cliff edge that nears
'til the depressive dust cloud clears
driven away by listening engine ears

identifying with rebellious mutineers
and creative bohemian pioneers
PJ Harvey rather than Britney Spears
the altruistic and the volunteers
I live a life in all their spheres

not searching for 1,2 or 3 cheers
as the only rhyme left is gondoliers!
Just a bit of Friday for fun my fellow Hello Poetry contributors. Have a grand weekend!

Up and down
Far and near
In love closest is tear.

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)

i love you
and you may not love me

but at least
we're on the same sky
so near, yet very far
How many dreams will It take for me to realise my biggest dream has left me for good

To which I have no answer for every time I wake from a dream It's that I fear all my dreams may fade and die

I have to hold on to the dreams can't let go or I will surely die for dreams are to where my sweetheart lies

To follow those dreams Is to keep her close for I know I can never let go I live to keep her dream alive
How precious my dreams of Helen they are I have to live
to hold the dream her
I dive into myself
to hide away from this world,
but the deeper I go,
the more I am near to you.
Salmabanu Hatim Nov 2018
I may be gone,
But you are not alone,
I am there for you
Me and you.
I travel in light years,
I have supersonic ears,
My senses more alert,
I can feel the beat of your heart.
I hear you,
I see you,
I feel you.
Look for me in the clouds,moon and stars,
See me twinkle for you from afar.
When I see you in tears,
I too, rain my dear.
I may be beyond your touch,
But,I am near you as much.
Ammar Abraham Nov 2018
My eyes look for you
Even tho you’re not here
I see beauty around me
Yet not as pretty as you anywhere

You’re a dream,
that is closest to my soul
And farthest from my body
Yet I find peace in you
That I feel from no body

You’re not in my arms
But you’re closer to me than most
I can’t kiss you,
Yet I know it’ll be the best kiss one can imagine.
I can’t touch you
Yet without you I’d be lost

Loving you feels like a song or an art
I’ll always be here, and we’ll be
Heart to heart.
