#617 — Desiree;

I have a longing for you,
For the aromatic silence,
In your eyes.
I have a longing for you,
For the trilling allure,
Of your lips,
I have a longing for you,
To ease my troubled sleep,
In the cradle of your embrace.


#616 — Shame;

This shameless vessel,
Fashioned out of one handful,
Of scattered loam,
Ooze its fill of puff and hubris —
Yet, held in the embrace,
of its naked reality,
It trembles and crumbles,
To dust, in utter disgrace.

#612 — Love;

Such disobedience,
That angels cannot
Afford to have,
And of compassion,
That devils don’t know —
Such is Love, my friends,
A Mercy from Allaah,
Most Compassionate of All,
To His rebellious,
And disobedient slave.

#611 — Take Me Home;

Take me home,
On those rising waves,
Take me home,
On those gentle ripples,
As they take the ocean,
Slowly to the shore —
Take me home,
To the voice,
Rising from your depth,
Calling me.

Aah, wilderness,
take me, and lose me
In your love,
And when I’m born,
from your silence,
I shall glow again,
Like the lambent moon.

#609 — Fate;

Fate — you stranger,
won’t you be mine again?
Why must you for a moment,
Come to me,
To run away the next,
Only to rush back to me again?
Fate — you stranger,
With me forever,
Yet, destined for another

#608 — Longing;

Come, you lovers,
Let us together, rejoice,
In this strange fate.
Let us celebrate the agony
Of longing
