Crushing blow, stomach ripped out. Lies.
heart expoldes - a thousand tiny fragments into space.
I double up
Curl up
wretch then the tears start.
hot rivers flow.
You knew how much I needed that.
I asked with kind humility.
No repect shown back
just lies
humiliating me.
do you laugh behind my back
at how easy it is to fool me?
do you know the reason?
not lack
Just love and belief in you.
you mock my trust and dishonour our family
You give your son nothing to follow
with your lies
you cheapen everything
Leaving it bone dry and hollow.

breath between a letting in and a letting go. 
warm air lingers around my lips.
heartbeat slow.
perhaps if i hold this long enough the world will let me step off,
take stock,
until i am ready to spin again.

love like this i wished for all my life
and then it came.
a storm that blew
and blew
and blew.
love like this forges saints from its fire

i love you
with my heart and more.
with life
and breath.
i love you
even from behind the veils of stories, insults, lies, regrets.
i see you
as you see me
when we are unafraid and stare,
soul to soul.
that's why we are still here.

Hafiz :
I know the way you can get
When you have not had a drink of Love:

Your face hardens,
Your sweet muscles cramp.
Children become concerned
About a strange look that appears in your eyes
Which even begins to worry your own mirror
And nose.

Squirrels and birds sense your sadness
And call an important conference in a tall tree.
They decide which secret code to chant
To help your mind and soul.

Even angels fear that brand of madness
That arrays itself against the world
And throws sharp stones and spears into
The innocent
And into one's self.

O I know the way you can get
If you have not been drinking Love:

You might rip apart
Every sentence your friends and teachers say,
Looking for hidden clauses.

You might weigh every word on a scale
Like a dead fish.

You might pull out a ruler to measure
From every angle in your darkness
The beautiful dimensions of a heart you once

I know the way you can get
If you have not had a drink from Love's

That is why all the Great Ones speak of
The vital need
To keep remembering God,
So you will come to know and see Him
As being so Playful
And Wanting,
Just Wanting to help.

That is why Hafiz says:
Bring your cup near me.
For all I care about
Is quenching your thirst for freedom!

All a Sane man can ever care about
Is giving Love!”
