It’s still hanging low
since the moon
came down so close.

The seven seas dance
beneath her polished feet
but could never touch it.

Then the intact moon,
in fact, once did unleash
only when one popped
out ahead of the rest.
Down from the earth
luminary Muhammad
Peace be upon him
pointed his finger towards it.
And into two halves
did the Moon split!

But the man wouldn’t touch it
remained with us all
with every human the Moon dwarfs!
Commemorating the birthday of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). One of his miracles was that he split the moon after some pagans asked him to show them a miracle to prove he is a prophet.

When do we truly dare to say that we know
someone or something at each fullest extent?
When we believe in it?
When we learn from it?
When we have proof for it?
What i understand is that we don't know even ourself
until a critical moment appears, until we have to make
a decision that will affect not only us but people we love
and our soul embrace.

See you with her, made me realize that I'm not your special girl anymore.
See you hold hands with her made me think that it was my hand you're holding before.
That hug of yours that once to be my home,
that laugh that once we shared together
and,
you that once to be mine.
See you happy with her...
that way I can convince myself that I'm no longer the love of your life anymore.
I'm no longer the reason behind your fast heart beating
and
that way I can convince myself to accept the fact that I could never be in that place that I used to be.
I'm now letting you go.
Believe me, I love you.
But I guess,
she can love you more.
Dedicated to R.E.
My weaknesses
Make me fear the invoked,
My mental creation,
That’s almost human
But vested with many powers
Meant to protect me
And make me
Conquer my fears.
What have I gained?
A vain virtuality
That gives more pain
Than joy!
