and post notes and photos about your poem like Lasaad Tayeb.
My heart is brimming with an endless flow of grief.
And my soul has already been deeply shattered out.
Even short bursts of breathing are rather tough.
My sobs have merged into steady tears streaming out.
Desperate to pay respects to the dead at their tomb.
And weep for hours at graves of ones I embrace.
Particularly when you share the same womb.
I'm trying to thrive as I'll never heed your face.
When one sheds a tear, some wisdom is revealed.
I am at ease knowing you are in the heavenly place.
I will succeed and overcome adversity ahead.
When death comes for me, we'll meet face to face.
