Not new in my vocabulary or experience
Common rather through observation and experience
Discard at will and doubt the sincere
Typical. But you, I never saw as typical
Different rather
How about a hiatus between us two until you discover your own true self
Go, go seek out your loyal friends and guides
I have no doubt they love you and care for you
Indeed you shall find all that you seek with your sincere select dosts
I transient, a spare wheel rather
This is common and you rather have simply confirmed once again a greater truth
I shall not waste your time or energy
Nor send you texts or otherwise anything part of me
Nor keep you up and disrupt your schedule and distract you with your higher learning, your studies or thoughts
Weaning may not be sudden, so randomness may arrive in your mail or messages
Discard at will, as you choose to discard her at will
Once you discover you, only then will you truly know me
Likewise the same applies to me
As per your request, i shall abide
The choice is yours. Respectfully

Doubt Has Separated Two Hearts

While I would wake up early
At a time where nobody would dare to disturb me
Silence and myself engage
I think of
That time and space where we connect
Early morning
Late night
Your sleep in abyss
I speak to
For you I would crawl out of bed
Only to arrive at yours
Coming home to heart
My soul in love with
You close one door
and another
How cruel
Your sudden uturns
Of eerie silence
Doubts increase
Speech is dumbed
I talk to
In empty words
The shawdows you inquire of
Are right here between us
The veils between
These shadows called doubt
Doubt has separated two
You allowing her entry
Doubt is the affair
Infidelity personified
Choose me or choose
That a soul is either loyal or not
No third degree
Just this or that
Just black or white
Grey exists not
I loyal
Your heart concurs
Mind, your enemy
Befriended doubt
A fierce Storm
sets in
Raging wind
Choose me or choose
Playing heart games
Stop this madness
The Queen seeks
Checkmate me
I checkmate
Russian politics
Eastern love affair
A tantric dance
Of soul and heart
A Zen monastery
I seek peace
Me fire
You water
You the flame
I the moth
A yin yang dance
Shall I seduce you once more
The door is shut
Doubt your watchman
Dismiss him from service
I slay doubt
A bloody duel
Beheading doubt
I seek Kremlin
A peacock throne
The Shahs of Persia
award me wine
This court royal for hearts like
For hearts like
Let’s have a duel
Loyalty vs Doubt
Indeed I won
It is too late
In the game
No victory
Defeat’s defeat
Loyalty proclaimed
defend me not
with swords and battles
I a lone warrior
Known to hearts
Defend me not!
Leave doubt and this lover
To themselves
Let them be
Alone in eachother
Like oil and water
A mismatched couple
Let them be
Again this jouney to beyond the beyond
With thyself, the mirror a mirage!
Embrace your reflection
The reality is you with
You in you.

Voice of Love

Voice of Love

Today I heard my voice in all it’s clarity
To my astonishment this voice was Yours
The beauty I heard cannot be described by words or pen
It charmed me and I am full of love again
Drunk in your melody and dance to its echo!
My heart is intoxicated like a drunk drummer who has lost all sense of rythm
The beat of this drum shall carry on till your notes are heard again


Dream of Zulaikha in the Magical Kingdom of Arabia 2013

Dear Alicia,

The following is a dream I saw of you on June 10, 2013:

Beneath a starry night sky in a vast desert with an enormous gathering you sat donning a Royal Arabian attire and recited poetry to the audience. You wore a silken bedouin attire and held a golden pearl studded wine goblet with which you drank from.


I sat and listened to you recite among the audience. We were mesmerized by the recital; which was full of mystical rhythm and’s hard to describe the feeling, but I felt as if we were all in a trance. The ambiance was superb. A pitch black starry sky and we sat beneath with dim candle lights… In this auspicious gathering, I noted there were three famous personalities; The famed Kings of Arabia: H.R.H. King Khalid, Faisal and Abdullah. They too, as if in trance, cheered you on. I saw King Faisal rise and approach you with a trophy like reward or gift. You received it with grace and poise. I recall you being very composed and regal throughout and post recital. This dream carried on throughout the night until I awoke. I felt the serenity. After arising fom sleep, I felt it a must to contact you and share this.  WOW!! is all I have to say and it was very therapeutic listening to you! (Fatiha)
