What you exhume from under the rubble
Is what you should have excavated long ago
Hidden hopes, unspoken truths and treasured love

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
There are words you will never remember and I will never forget
Things you will never know and I will never let slip
You remember nothing of what I spoke but I remember every word you said

Surrounded by naught but raw allure
Beckoning beauty, exotic lure
Serenity settling, tranquil and pure

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
The breeze as my escape
The sky as my shield
I run free in a naked field

.:The Song of Sorrow:.

I listen to songs hoping they would sing my sorrow
But none know of my despondence or that I’m hollow
I try and seek comfort and solace in the words
But am left disappointed and acutely hurt
I can’t cope because I don’t know how
If you know a way show me
Help me sing the song of my sorrow

You let the cackle of lightning guide you
Those tiny flashes of light for a second
But what do you decide to do when the thunder halts?

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
I want to drive on a road that leads to nowhere
Walk on a path that ends somewhere
Somewhere off route off path in the endless daylight

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
Awaiting peace amidst war
Seeking trust among deception
Believing in the impossible

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
There is no shoulder to weep on, no one to hold on to and cry my misery out
All who would have filled that space are broken and scattered
I may be surrounded but am lost and solitary, alone and on my own

.:Your Heart in my Palm:.

.:All that is Beautiful:.

All that is beautiful reminds me of you
Nature and its creations; life and its expectations
And you remind me of love
All happiness and smile; all wonderful and mine
You are the most beautiful one I’ve known and life is beautiful with you
Because you are my one love and love is as beautiful as youI love you

.:One Support:.

When the world around you is barren after turbulence and devastation
You shall be the only one standing among the remains in destitution
No one will be there beside you to wipe your tears or console you
To feed you or comfort you
Except for the one support of your existence and your soul Your creator n protector Allah, One who makes you feel whole

I live within gray towers chained
Sing songs of your name
I have lost myself and gone insane

Bound to your fanatical love night and day

.:Now Playing:.

I put on my earphones with no track playing,
Listen to my own songs singing
I listen to the stories I’ve read and stories I write,
Listen to my wishes and desires ringing all night
I listen to conversations I’ve had and will have,
Listen to my day dreams and fantasies playing back
I listen to nothing but hear it all in my head,
Now playing r my stories, wishes and fantasies empty notes mislead
