We Will Fall in Love Again
For now, let us allow ourselves to weep.

Let's drown all our sorrows all night long
In bottles of wine and sad songs. 
Let us not force ourselves to accept
All the pain and...Read More

What Went Wrong
What really went wrong?
I've given them my all
Wrote a thousand dedication poems
Sang countless karaoke songs
Spent most of my time with them
Given up my heart and my soul
Even forgot about going home
Shown them utmost respect, yet, 
Abandonment is what I always...Read More

Crustacean Canto

Lobsters packed in eighteen-wheelers
grapple with their feelings.
A mass custody of shrimps
spoon together
still pink with passion.
Crabs cross-dress
bound more-or-less
to nips of salty resentment.
A soupçon of sea bugs
dished up
on bright porcelain plates.
Fresh alien captives
worth more alive than dead
until we break bread.

the rivers flow you never took
and on the dry bed there
the hand made boat of hope
without repair
still longing for the rivers heart
to keep its untamed bow afloat

And the mouth you used to say...Read More

Wish Upon The Moon
I no longer wish upon a Star

But now they seem to bloom

The moon has an undeniable pull
Yet holds no kind of resentment
The stars promises are so cruel

Grateful to the skies
And the darkest nights,
To the moon and stars
That are my night’s lights.
Morning and the Mosques

When hopes of new victories
Upon me are awakening.

Where black gold is flowing,

You're meaningful to me with glee

The Cycle of Life
Hate is to love,
