From Gardens to Paradise

Petals of Crimson and White
Measure the weight of love
Unearth raw passion and purity
Expose bare silence above
Shed the mask of disguise
From Gardens to Paradise

My Nuvole Bianche (White Clouds)

New fallen snow, draping Roman Castles
Enlivening purity, whispering hope.
Silent ecstasy
Enchanting, gripping.
Lives tied in clouds of breaths.
Frozen moments defined

Emerald Peaks Glimmer, subdued lights flicker
Once alive now subtle.
A life under morning melodies.
A day spent beneath plucked petals
Shadowed by where we choose to hide.
Never gone, forever mine

In drifting Rain and blown out candles
Death awaits in sleep, unheard, gentle
Life, Love, Faith and courtesy
Trust, shattered bowed in humility
Loss of one
One world, One Life, One Love.
Be not afraid of running consequences, fear has no hold on you.
Charge forward Gladiator, you'll win this war through

It's when I hold you that I fell solace in words.
Breathe luxury of the finest, set apart the destitution.
I've fallen prey to your magnificence, drawn to your charisma.
All allure has fallen blind, outshone by your presence
If I had to choose one over you, I'd have chosen none. 
No gladiator
Can win against the vulnerability
Of piling wishes

Haiku By Maria Yousuf

In hot pursuit of the past
You forged the future
Into an emblem of ashes and pain

Haiku By Maria Yousuf

My greatest war has begun
And I'm on the battle field
Fighting against myself
