Awake at night

The light that flows through the window pale
Like frozen flecks of a blizzard gale
Filtered specks of desperate dust
Immortal death like slivered rust

No longer winter-Haiku

These breaths that you take
Where you close your sleepy eyes
Spring in Winter times

Lover to a love

Quietly I hear you weep
Right where I am to believe you were to sleep
I'd like to hold you warmly, steady
But I don't think I'm yet quite ready

You smile, you dance, and you sing
For my every special need I know the effort you bring
But right now I know you're crying
What once made us work is slowly and surely dying
Was it the fact that we have no more obstacles blocking our path
No more secrecy, friend, foe to keep us off track?
Without any need to look beyond your company around
Was our intimacy lost when we no longer needed to whisper a sound?

I'm lost now, and I thought all I need was you
But sadly, meekly, I realized that that's no longer true
No matter what you do for me, and what I try to do for you to keep it together
How short it seemed now, to go through what I'd thought we'd never
Quietly I hear you weep
Knowing what comes after your sleep
Feeling that you are the one who wished to keep us steady
But love, I no longer think I'm ready


Forget the pride you feel when a brother stumbles upon you praying
Forget the glee you receive when others call you a good Muslim.
You are only beginning to understand the Straight Way
When you rise up, it is not the cool water of Heaven that sparkles from your face
It is sweat, that of a man trying to seek His Grace
Only when you bow to the floor towards the direction that all of your brotherhood is unison is humbling themselves onto, at the same time, then you can relax with a smile and say,
I'm praying to my Lord, glory to Him.

Alcohol Dreams

I'm an alcoholic in my dreams, with each glass removing reality from the seams

It's New Year no? Everyone drinks, everyone forgets the past, it's a new moment.

So time to let go, because if I won't, as I have seen with people close to me, I'll never move on and enjoy things, both old and new.

Peace and blessings of God be upon you all,
