Outside, there is the sun
Green leaves grow, flowers bloom
Warm air, pleasant breeze
Yet for me, I am in the shade of gloom

A broken vow
And the clouds are weeping
I am their rainfall
Infertile soil, no garden to spring

What key is there to find
When they have all sunk in the ocean
And swallowed by the abyss of non-existence
Oh, how I have dreamt this sea to be one of passion

Those Love songs I penned with my heart
Floating in a realm of the past
Imprisoned in the sphere of memories
Forgotten tales of how we would never be apart

Another broken heart story
And the mirrors are shattering
I am the pieces, the cracks, the distortions
Nothing to reflect but the mask of tragedy

Reason and Revelation
Where I have gone wrong in these schools of thought
Who will resurrect Baghdad’s House of Wisdom
Who will provide the answers?

Talk of flying, romantic gardens
Mythical creatures, mystic paintings
My fingers dancing across piano keys
Was I just a mere abstraction?

A murdered dream
And the fairy tale is fading
I am chasing its happy endings, its light of hope
Running from the storm of this nightmare

I drive alone on this empty and silent road, friend
No light for days, no life for a thousand miles
Sooner or later, I think
The nightmare will end

Blow a kiss to the moon
Compose a verse, listen to the heart
Sooner or later, I hope
I will be home soon

Show me the Path, my King

    I have discovered a very precious site through sister krishna’s blog .
    Very beautiful expression of feelings . Soothing words . Sorrow seems to melt and flow with the words and pictures .
    Like the candle that burns itself to illuminate it’s surroundings ………..
    That is how these words seem to be !

    I wish to express my gratitude to the source of these words.

    Thank you everyone for your supportive comments. Krishna, I wrote a response on your blog : )

    Swadhinbd – thanks for visiting and I will check your website out soon. I have to disagree with you about blame though. We should not blame Allah for anything. Any misery that occurs to us is either our own doing, or Allah is doing it because He promises something better (this is written in the Qur’an).

    Haamidah – May Alah bless you for your dua’s, thank you. I don’t mean to fill my blog up with negativity. Some days I have to express myself like this.

    Akash – And I found your words to be soothing too. If there is a candle still lit inside of me, I am glad that at least someone sees it 🙂

    Very interesting painting too.

    Salaam Broken Mystic:

    You are a good poet. I really like the part:

    “A murdered dream
    And the fairy tale is fading
    I am chasing its happy endings, its light of hope
    Running from the storm of this nightmare”

    Really interesting. The thought of a murdered dream is… interesting. 🙂
