I'd Like to die young
But I guess I am not privileged
To be granted such a high status...

Wednesday, September 29, 2010

I want to lean against a tree
Sit among the hush of the night with the breeze
And listen to the waves as they lick my feet

Haiku By Maria Yousuf

I am free
From needing somebody
To listen to me

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
Hurricane of truth
And a tornado of lies
Unaware of what either comprise

Haiku By Maria Yousuf

Only when you are in Pain
Do you realize
How relaxing your life is

Haiku By Maria Yousuf

Being attached is trusting someone with your life
Trusting them with every secret and ache
But that was my mistake
I should have taken you for what you had said

Quatrain By Maria Yousuf
I guess its over, I feel a dull ache pulsing as it dies
I revive your hurting words and wait for the tears and cries
but there is nothing, just faded, hollow and forgotten times

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
I hope it comes soon, the day I stop trusting blindly
The day you hurt and break me
The day I turn away from thee

Haiku By Maria Yousuf

I am waiting for the moment when it will break
I know its not far away
Because I can see your colors change

They misunderstood me and said a lot that broke me
I never thought you would ever be among those who would mistake me
But now there you are, saying those exact words and wrongfully accusing me

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
You stood beside me and heard my sobbing words
I never stopped to think that you would ever forget all you heard
But now i see you, on the opposite end staring at me

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
I want to submerge beneath
And weep my tears in the sea
Where no one would see me

Haiku By Maria Yousuf

When a breath of worry touches you I silence it by saying its all okay
But I wish you would turn around and look me in the eyes and say
"Don't lie, trust me and let me take your pain away"

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
You are a complete fool to believe what I say
Now I know
You don't really know me anyway

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
Take me out to the sea
I want to feel and submerge in the tranquility
Smell the salty air and hear the waves crash softly

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
When I see that others have someone to share everything with...That is when I realize I am all alone
Blood rushes to my head and my nerves begin pulsing
It blocks my ears and I am deaf to what others are saying
My heartbeat quickens and I am unable to speak
Wrath blinds me as White Hot Fury engulfs me

This is what Anger does to me
Disables me from clarity
But I am lost in its torrents of waves
There is nothing I can do to escape

I am believing your words
Living a lie
Because I know your promises will die

Haiku By Maria Yousuf

I am coated with layers of azure, violet and indigo
Bathing in stirring thoughts, hot and cold
Lost in memories I had known

Haiku By Maria Yousuf

.:Birthday Gift For You:.

A glimpse is all I need
To know your identity
But you'll never know who I'll be

Never know how deep
Never know which leap
I'll remain an intriguing mystery

So stop searching for a way
Because I have blocked all paths from within
You will learn who I am only if I choose to let you in

To my little one, Franny, for your birthday(I know its early)
Read this on September 19, 2010 *HAPPY BIRTHDAYYYYY* :) x0x0x0
I'll be your pillar of strength
Be the one there when you are in need
All I need from you is a little faith in me

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
I am that friend to you
The one whom i never had
So you wont be as lonely as me and wont be as sad

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
I'll be the one who you need me to be
The one to hold your hand while you sleep
The one to wipe away those tears that seep
But will you be that someone for me?
The one who holds my hand and wipes my tears away?
The one by my bedside when I ask you to stay?

Dusty typewriters
Dark corners
I've forgotten I ever was a mourner

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
I nursed your wounds for hours
Numbed your aching cries
Can you not lay a single rose, on my casket when I die?

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
Am I not significant?
Am I not yours?
Am I not the one whom you adored?

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
I am lost in a maze
Lost to be found
Lost to be let out in the clouds

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
I am caught between the valley of waves
Lost in confusion and time

Haiku By Maria Yousuf

I try to help you see truth, try and make you sane
You smile for a moment and then begin crying again
I sit down and begin wiping away all your tears and pain

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
I try and make you happy and smile
And I hear your laughter and see your crinkled eyes
Sadly it only lasts for a while

Haiku By Maria Yousuf

I like how it hurts
Like how I Cry
It reminds me I'm alive

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
No Immortal lives true
They are but a corpse carried by a soul
Be grateful to death, it gives living another role

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
In the inky blue of midnight
Serenade beneath the starlight
And whisper shivers of delight

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
The thunder is your echo, your storm's peace
The rain is your ache, your unheard pleas
Walk away, forgive, forget, let go of your anger, cease

Haiku By Maria Yousuf

If you hear me cry
And ask me why
I'll know your worry is a Lie

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
Spin love from strands of clouds
Weave vines of intimacy and create a shroud
Wrap it around you as you vowed

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
"I Love thee" say Shakespeare's plays
But I wonder if that's what I'll say
When I find someone worth my night and days

Haiku By Maria Yousuf

I'll watch you from far away
Think if you think of me the same way
And unwillingly wish to shove it out of my way

Haiku By Maria Yousuf

You just stand there and watch me
I wonder if you wonder
What is going through my mind

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
Its all okay
As long as you tell me you Love Me
Before I die

Haiku By Maria Yousuf

.:How Long?:.

My throat chokes and heart clenches
Breath catches and I cry
Sentiments well and emotions spill
Feelings ache and I know why
I dive in an abyss and hide
If you ever see me I'll probably lie

Its been so long since I poured my sentiments while I cried
So long since I knew why
So long since I pacified myself with lies
So long since I buried my cries
So long since I sought questions and wondered why
So long since I truthfully lied

How long will these tears cry?
How long until they dry?
How long until the misery hides?
How long until it all dies?
How long until I get laugh lines?
How long until I finally find happiness and smiles?

I'm lonely so very lonely...
Today I need you to wipe my tears away
Need you to hug me and say its all okay
Need you to listen to the despondent words I say
Need you to spread a smile on my tear stained face

Today I need you to give me your support and faith
Need you to give me happiness for and against all it takes
Need you to give me me comfort and solace
Need you to give me laughter and take away all aches

Today I need you to be my hero and come to my rescue
Today I need you to give me all like I given you
Today I need you to do everything for me like I have done
Today I need you to be there for me completely just this once
The tracks are empty and the air barren
No train puffs smoke or hoots deafning sirens
I sit alone on the lone bench, sharing with no one my teary silence

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
I'm far away from you, far far away
You are engrossed elsewhere and never listen to what I say
Your prescence is a shadow which fails to recognize my soul
I wonder if thats how we'll depart, strangers unknown

Zindagi Ishq hai
Ashiqoon ka mazhar
Uss Khuda ke liyay
Jis ne kiya hum se pyaar

Urdu Poetry By Maria Yousuf
Yeh roshan zindagi mein andheray kahan?
Jab dil mein noor hai tou duniya kia?
Dil mein noor ALLAH ki mohabbat
Jaan aur maal saab ALLAH ki qudrat

Urdu Poetry By Maria Yousuf

Laughing a little louder today?
Smiling a little wider today?
You are a little happier each day

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
To every dreaming girl
Your life is a fairytale
Just make it happen...

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
