I want to tell you a tale
Tell you a story
With my Haiku Poetry

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
We are the tree
Never alone but always lonely
In the end its just us, our roots and nobody

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
When the festivity abandons
You see the vulnerability
A single trunk in your gallery

Haiku By Maria Yousuf

Seasons come and then they go
Fruitful moments, colors and songs
But they are never meant to last long

Haiku By Maria Yousuf

The bark is left bare
With pathetic stares
And no admiration

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
Slowly the leaves start falling
One by one
Down to none

White Rose

Upon a bed of water I float

As my fragile petals soak

But I travel far to return whole

For no matter how breakable, I have hope

I will walk the path that is untreated
Rather than the one which is worn
I will choose the path which is guarded
The one no one chose

It maybe underrated and fenced
But I will know that I am safe
I will walk the path you didn't choose
But I wish the destination is you

I keep my heart guarded
Censor every word to what is right
I don't want to be caught guilty when I'm judged

I am not a transparent crystal
You can't see through me
I am more of an opaque stone
You see what I let you see

I could have told you all so easily
But I'm glad you had to leave
I don't think I could have let you be
After all I could have revealed

Encrypted Morse code

I tell you my secrets secretly
Send a Morse code for you to read
You read it all and nod in acknowledgement
But only I know what I have revealed

I encrypt my Morse code
Don't tell you anything at all
I encrypt it with antonyms
And spell it the other way around

I wish you would know the hidden note
Know what is spelled in decode
I want you to know but I don't want to say it out loud
I wish you would decode my encrypted Morse code

Soaring Wrong Winds

I'm at the edge of the cliff, ready to take off
I hope I don't begin soaring the wrong winds
Winds that I wasn't destined to fly with
Winds that weren't meant to elevate me
Wrong currents beneath my wings ascending me

I won't risk soaring those wrong winds
So I'll block their current or wait for them to pass by will
I wont risk gliding their flow to experience their thrill
I wont take that chance I wont take that risk
I won't let their allure drive me off the cliff


My curls fall over my eyes
My eyes feel a bit damp but I feel no need to cry
My heart throbs a little, slightly wounded, hurt
It feels bitter sweet, more bitter than sweet
No apparent reason why or why not

Can you be a stranger to your own feelings?
Or are you capable to ignore and overlook them?
Can your heart and mind confuse your sentiments?
Or can other reasons cause such a throbbing ache?
How can they resonate the same way as a heartache?

I can't reach the core of the cause
Can't figure out why
I am happy but I feel a little prick
A prick that tells me not entirely
It never felt like something more then why am I sad?

Spinning crazy in your insanity
Mind stopping me?
This chair is beginning to hurt :S

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
I reveal history in dirt and bones
Unearth the secret of past lives
If only knowing you would have been as easy

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
