StrongI'm happyStrong4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I never break
Know that I
I am fragile
Fragile as an egg
A chip or a crack
And I spiral down
Into the abyss
The liquid inside me
It pours out
Onto the ground
In little drops
My tears spill forth
From my once guarded eyes
You walk to me
To comfort me
To hold me
I push you away
You can't see why
Why I do this
This act of strength
I won't take your pity
Pity for one
One who doesn't
Doesn't deserve it
Have you ever thought
Thought that maybe
I'm being strong for you
Because no one
No one was strong for me
So hold me anyways
Show me what
What it means
Means to be weak
Because I didn't
Didn't want to be
Be like all the others
That let me down
I need to know
That it's okay
Okay to be weak
In your arms
And let the tears
It's been too long
Too long of being strong
To let you see
I'm not without
Of my own
I'm just broken
Like everyone else
When love rhymesYou said God made me perfectWhen love rhymes2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The roundness of my hip, the softness of my lip
Gentle is my tip, I take you on every wild trip
So tighten your grip, squeeze me and take a sip
Get on my last ship, it is time to tear and rip
My waves keep slamming your shore
Burning every sense in your core
Your nails on my side, always coming back for more
They take over every land, as we celebrate this war
You said God made me perfect
The size of my breast, where you built your nest
My wild birds on your chest , always flying west
The short breath is your guest, dancing, will never rest
Every touch gives you my best, closer to my final quest
Nothing like the First LoveThere's nothing like the first loveNothing like the First Love2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And those early signs of bliss
Where heartache's still unheard of
And all you lust for is a kiss
When we're still so innocent and pure
Think with love, this world, we cure
But we're just so immature
Gave our hearts away without really being sure
There is nothing like the first love
No one could ever take their place
We may come across pure beauty
Only to find perfection in their face
And the thickness of their lips
Combine to form a perfect smile
Leave our hair standing on its tips
Nothing like the first love
Even if one day we grow apart
We will always keep the memories
And a special place for them inside our hearts

Come to me you who are hungry
Come to me you who are burdened
Come to me you who are shattered
Come to me you broken hearted
Come to me you whose hope has departed
Come to me you who are forgotten and shamed
Come to me you who are lost and pained
Come to me reprobates and sinners
Come to me slaves and prisoners
Come to me outsiders and outcasts
Come to me you whose sickness has come to pass
I am your abba father
I am your friend and brother
I am your gentle lover
I am your gracious savior
My mercy and grace will surround you
My peace and joy will be bountiful
My love shall certainly not fail
My plan and promises will prevail
My forgiveness will never come to an end
My showers of blessing to you I will send
My providing you will receive
My life is your hope and your need
I lived, died, and rose for you
I had the pain you are feeling to
Nails in my hands and feet
My body destroyed and left to bleed
I was mocked and scorned by ones I thought of as

On the edges of your lipsMy soul flickers back and forth in your presenceOn the edges of your lips3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
As I drag myself on the floor slowly, barely
I surrender to the voices promising your love
And the dream of tomorrow bringing me your scent
You do not see me nor my fading shadow
I am right here, down here, take one look at me
I lay my wings over your shoulders, I take the rain for you
I kiss the flock of birds that flew over you
I swallow every thorn in your way, I turn your path blue
I hug every glimpse of fear in your eyes
I live on the edges of your lips, I steal every word you speak
I sleep between your ribs, I sing along with your heartbeat
I built my shrine between your palms, there, I pray for your love
And yet, you do not see me nor my fading shadow
Your grip on my heart drying up every drop of life
But I will not leave, if you tear me apart, I will love you
If you burn my dreams, cut my veins , I will love you
If you put out my candle, my golden sky, I will love you
If you rip your seed out o

A Letter to my FatherFather,A Letter to my Father3 years ago in Letters More Like This
Today, It has been nine months and nineteen days since I left. Three thousand kilometers of distance. This is the longest period of time that we have been apart. I miss you, I remember you all the time. Suddenly, I remember things I did not think about before, suddenly they all keep jumping in my face, so many memories, some warm, some cold, some tough, and some just beautiful.
Do you know that I can remember the days you were teaching me the Arabic alphabet and the French Alphabet. Whenever we have a guest, I run to them and start shouting " A,B,C,D,E,F......." They smile and ask me who thaught you all this, I run to you, I hug you and I say " Dad taught me".
You took me to the beach, you taught me how to love it, this is why now the beach is where I find my soul, where my heart feels at home, where I feel a very strong sense of belonging I dont quite understand. We went to
