I am veiled. I am an insomniac.
I am a lot of raindrops on window glass.
I am the treasure that is hidden in dunes.
I am the screeching winds on dreary nights.
I am the blossoming trees on a warm spring.
I am your welcoming sight on a starry night.
Do not stand at my final resting place and shed bitter tears.
I am far away. I did not fall asleep.

Do you know who?
He is the one who I showed him my dark side;
Then, he threw light on it.
Like water! He brings life to my arid land
Like the sun! he illuminates my dark path
Like a clear sky! He clears doubt from my perplexed clouds
Like spring! In it renewal, resurrection, revival
Of meanings inspired by spring to lighten the darkness
I have wondered, how can a person begin his inner journey?
I answered confidently when he finds who grants him tranquillity
Like a parched tree waiting to be watered, to revive afresh
One of a kind, exceptional, his own fabric
Do you know who? It is him!

Your hair, its softness makes my heart palpitate rapidly;
Your face, its lineaments leave me in the wonder of their rarity;
Your eyes, I can stare open-mouthed into them unweariedly;
Your lips, I wish I can kiss them constantly;
Your hands, I wish I can entwine them with mine eternally.
Your mind, it captures me on every occasion thoroughly;
Your soul, I can love it everlastingly;
Your heart, it belongs only to me, solely;
O, my inamorata! Feelings of you will never be dreary.

O, you beautiful thing!
Your face is beyond praise;
While gazing at it intently,
I see the sense of my life gracefully,
I see my bright coming times,
I see my furnished destiny,
I see my sweet home,
I see my little toddlers.
Bewitching in every way!
There is nothing more pleasing
Like her shapely face.

I went to the seaside in the early morning;
Rain cried heavily on the wet sand,
Leaving my footprints as an anchor with my real life.
I observed the murky mist covering the surface of the sea,
While the white gulls swarming upon the sea;
I stood rooted to the wet sand motionless,
Staring at the angry waves profoundly;
It seemed like my whole life was described in those waves,
Each wave had a deep notion to declare.
A wave of mistrust, betrayal, detest;
Infinite waves kept moving nearer to me,
And I kept trying to move forward dauntlessly
To overcome all the hurdles and worriments.

If you leave me in the lurch,
And forget the withered leaves
Of my crumbling branches,
Don’t you dare come again!
May the colossal forest be your
Misadventure in seek for filling
Your profound emptiness.
Oh so grand! Deep in the forest;
I shall grow afresh into
The mighty oak that once
Stood its ground mightily;
Embodied in my towering sturdiness.
Ali Hilout Jun 2020
I seek true peace, the kind you fail
To bring to light; yet, came across
With a long walk pier that has lights on the sides;
On a shore with beige sand,
Once I reach my fingers down into the sand;
Its grains give you chills and a unique relief,
Where your thoughts show signs of life,
For them to dance in the melodies of my mind.
