Your New Favorite Book!

“When I stare at the sky, I see you. When I stare out into the ocean, I see you. When I’m looking at the moon, I see you. Oh GOD! Would you move aside, you’re constantly getting in my way.” Hussein Nishah

It seems
You found your new favorite book
[In him] One that keeps you alive
And awake at night
Turning his pages
Forward and previous.
Fingers lingering on him
So you don’t lose your place.
It seems
You found my replacement
The one that makes you feel good
And fresh after work
Who handles your mood swings
Better than I [Shuhab] ever could
Stay alive stay faithful
Happy reading your new favorite book.
God bless you both.

If I Was To See You Again!

If I was to see you again,
It would be too soon,
My emotional scars are still fresh
They will take so long to heal
They are still raw
And tender to the touch.
Though happy memories
Outweigh the negative,
I am still left wondering eternal
If I ever knew you at all?

I have so many questions,
So much tormenting my soul,
So much unknown
That is forever to be laid in mystery,
Since I lack the courage to ask
And any questions I have asked
In the past were met with bad attitude
If I was to see you again?
I would walk in the opposite direction!

A lot more disturbing
Than it ever was before.
I knew it was never permanent
Based on the way you’d sound.
I wish I could say
Or believe that before.

You’ve been the best bestfriend
Anyone could ask for,
Your personality
And principles I really adore.

I still remember
Your extra-large tees you wore,
Which made you look so cute.

I’ll never forget
Those beautiful kisses
Because to me they felt
Like beautiful heavens.

Now truths have been spoken
And your story is told
Crying eyes, hidden lies
And your too many goodbyes.

Once again its forever, like before.
But this time it’s different
I have closed the door
[Your] Sorry is just a word.

All the memories will be blurred
Our friendship will be missed
Each day, every day and forever.
Goodbye love, goodbye bestfriend.

Oh My Soft Love!

Oh my soft love
Tranquil lute
Fair plumed mist
Queen of my heart
Make my day melodious.

Come on my idiot phone
Make a sound of love
Humbly once more

Between the curse and heart
Oh my soft love
I will burn

Let me not wander in a barren dream
While I am consumed in fire
Give me new wings to fly off
