When I hear this sound that awakens me, intimidating its way into my cloistered night, I write…

Because I can

This poet 

Can imprison

The war of souls,

Lost dreams,

Worries,

spirits,

Poisoned flowers,

In her poems,

Because she can.

A Woman forever

a_cry_of_pain_sad_eyes_by_yousif_ahmed1

Sun rising in your eye.

Under your feet, earth moving by.

Your beauty, why haven’t seen?

Hold your hand for feeling, not demean!

The softness, the kindness in high degree;

Yet there is Might in your arms, help me!

For I’m blind and can’t see.

For I’ve sloped you,

When you give “love”, it is true.

I’ve killed the very thing,

The person, the WOMAN, everything!

The woman who gave me life.

Never brought me to grave of strife.

For all is lost.

A storm is coming with gust.

Tall, she will once more stand,

While help I look for from your hand.

She will walk strong,

While I stumble along.

She will hold out her hand.

Fears in her eyes stand.

Pain of heart, she will love me.

She is a woman who has fed me.

Look, you’re blind;

You don’t hear, have no mind!

You don’t feel,

For she will always reveal;

A woman forever!

Never she sever!! …

Following Footsteps

37940092_257917808352890_5573285516184387584_n

A lifetime of following footsteps!

Some antediluvian,

Impossible to decipher!

Old socks forming torturous channels!

Cotton footprints…

A circular tour of my oesophagus my duodenum!

A lifetime of fitting what cannot be fitted;

Footsteps!!

Yours and theirs!! …

“APPARITION”

Image

… In our creative intellect and soul,

There is always a giant who has a role.

It is not loud or clear this APPARITION;

But its speech is high and moves the nation…

… It tells the nature to change her ways!

For us humans to have better days.

Inspiring us to know wilderness and brawl.

Taming our vision, our purpose and all!

… Some say that ideas can destroy;

They say words have no meaning, no joy!

They say distortion can bring good result.

They say fake happiness persist with insult!

… Inspired we truly are and blessed.

We master life’s holy test.

Some only hear the wisdom that they know.

We must be present as dreams grow!! …

“REASON- SENSE- FATE, YET GRAB SILENCE”

th

… Suddenly blood races through your vein.

Quivering, your heart pounds like falling rain.

How can a heart withstand,

This horror by this treacherous hand?

… Into your heart, let calmness creep.

Tell your senses don’t be afraid or weep.

Let’s soothingly the stillness slowly unfold!

Be tranquil, silent, let’s not your soul be cold!

… When did you see the rough sea?

Where did storm rage, waves moved savagery?

When you submerge yourself in the water’s deep;

And a silent peace finds you when you weep!

… Conflicts bring so much echo to the heart.

Fear is big and tears you apart.

Reason is accepted by all, but senses accepted as fate!

You grab silence, and never are late!! …

“BURNING FLAME”

v838

It is the dawn of the New Year.

The fire of another day flames.

Another day, another year, another pain;

Another rainy tears!

But the cold night will find me;

When with the internal pain,

I will reach the internal peace!

rain

My soul’s mad enemy,

Wash with rain water,

My rainy tears in another dawn!

And all the dawns day after day,

Light up the flame of another day!! …

“HELLO OR GOODBYE”

th-2

In that winter

That cold, snowy winter,

It came a day

That we left each other!

I don’t know why!

I can say why forever,

But I still don’t know why!

This separation taught me,

That wittout you,

I would not be a poet,

Or anything!

You, my friend,

You, my dearest of all,

I don’t know if this is hello or goodbye.

I am very tired!

Are you tired too?

“GRANDPA’S TREES””

15977512_1554135881268791_2422765126117703393_n

With all twist and turn of life, I can

answer the flowers’ questions with smile!

With approach of sunset, I can

sit behind the window to see the sunrise.

In dark and long nights, I can

think about crowd that once were with me.

With approach of dark thoughts, I can

share my secrets with trees.

With praying for humans all around, I can

stay alone with my disturbed soul.

With coming of old age, I can

Walk where home is, think about grandpa’s trees!! …

LET’S BREAK THE DEATH”

goodbye

When the darkness covers the earth

People who live at night

Stay awake to see the light

To look at unreachable light at far

To be patient for nearing spring

And leaving of dreadful winter!

They take us to where we’ve never seen!

They tell us the secret of flowers and trees

They tell us how to be in love of running water in streams

They never are silent

Stars call on streams

They can hear the call of stars

They find a laughter, a tear, a kiss

They listen to the beauty of sounds

They inhale the fresh air

So they don’t break the peace

So they break the death!! …

“I DON’T LOOK TO THE END ANYMORE”

a_cry_of_pain_sad_eyes_by_yousif_ahmed1

Tonight from the sky of your eyes,

Stars rain on my poems.

The white paper invites my finger,

To plant light!

Why must we escape from dark,

The diamond of stars lighten the night?

The perfume of jasmine makes the air delicious!

1822640

Ah, let me get lost with you!

No one is looking, we must.

With your singing eyes,

Sing a poem for my soul.

Ah, let us from this open door,

Fly out to the dark night!

Though sleeping in this desirous night,

Let us find our streams!

663704476c04574aa83405319512a75d

Do you know what I want from life?

I want to be you,

And you, me!

I want to run all deserts of life.

I want to climb all mountains of spring.

I want to be you,

And you, me

For I don’t look to the end any more!! …

“A LOVER’S PRAYER”

30738197163_d68e692ba6

… At today’s last dawn I see life so pure!

I will give my vision to you.

Can we survive creator’s world of haze?

… Fated blessing, pondering our limited days.

When the gift come? I hear voices so innocent!

My glorious spirit, I will give you my eternity…

… I see the hands which caressed the face of loveliness.

So tenderly, I bury evening, sorrowful sky with burgundy trees.

Come, we are out fate, a random thread of life!

… yet pure, true love can forever await.

When the silvery purple moon sheds its glistening cover,

The echo of our song in unknown world may still hover!

… If this journey shall not past my last breath,

I will endure an infinite inner death.

Look to my eyes when in pain, comfort my soul…

… Am I everything through you, let’s together stroll!

So listen! Silence hears our song till earth is in its mold;

And receive my immortal being that you hold!! …

“PREEMINENCE OF PROBABILITY”

14947506_1229585103751544_9183988304200330363_n

… Time, dawn…

Sun releases drips of morning dew.

It enhances all the wonders, only for few.

My mind’s eyes glances;

Then take a peek for thinking.

It blinks, knowing that it’s never been caught.

Searching for essence inspiring my thoughts to chime.

Rising again to see the wonder of dawn!

45656187

… Caresses in its gaze are by eyelashes ready to trap…

And hesitations in it never fail to turn time back.

Memories of forever make a sight to see;

A platitude of preeminence of probability!

I find what I looked for, the essence…

Whose presence is sublime!

I rise again to meet the dawn of time!! …

“PRISON CAGE”

article-0-1411A287000005DC-855_964x724

Do I rest among flowers and stars,

Or in a big square?

Where my first memory of growing up

Is buried!

Each night, instead of stars and moon

The words that storm has scattered

Fly out in my imaginary soul.

The moonlight gives light to the words

But the words are in a prison cage!

Calm never finds them in living!

They never been released from prison cage!! …

The color of…

fullsizeoutput_285d

The color of moon, red!

The color of wind, earthly!

The color of you, Persian!

Where are you from?

My heart from now on-

in muddy water disappears!

I hear a boring sound.

The Caspian Sea disappears!

Tehran snow, no more!

Can anyone in another place,

Scream the fate of her home?

Where am I from?? …
