Emotion

Filed under: Uncategorized — by Zuhair @ 10:25 am

Abundantly, emotion splashes

like the waves along the shore;

and ever so gently, warmth powders

the beating heart, causing it to sore.

I see, when my eyes are closed

and hurt when my eyes are open,

and not a day goes by

when I do not feel broken.

But I hold on to this,

this, that is as brilliant and golden

as the disappearing sun,

inviting nights which from us, are stolen.

A melancholy state

The beautiful moon cannot glow,

and the rivers cannot so softly flow;

The shy plants cannot turn away,

and the silent night,

sprinkled with secret sounds,

cannot be stolen by day,

as long as we are so separate,

as separate as the moon and the sun,

and the sand and the sky

in so melancholy a state.

A few lines of hate

So great an energy travels through me,

defying you, you vile establishment,

plagued with stereotype,

designed to control, seeking punishment;

greedy to determine right from wrong

yet ignorant of the value of good things,

and oh! How I have yearned for so long

to escape you. Me, you sting.

So great a hope travels through me,

in rebellion against you,

in search of my spirit,

that you so hungrily sought to destroy

through deprivation of love;

through seizure

of happiness

and destruction of adventure.

So great a life possesses me

in my shunning away

of you and your wickedness –

Oh! Every day long owing to this, every day-

against you, you vile creature,

and your hunger for sadness

and your impatience with emotion,

and your allergies to happiness.

And no. The fault is not yours.

It is theirs, those loathsome beasts.

It is they who poison you,

so we blister too.
