She Felt Deeply Then

She Felt Deeply Then

When she was younger,
she would burst into tears,
for no reason it seemed.

The excruciating pain
restricted her lungs
and made her heart sore.

Pains from previous lives,
for most of her adolescence,
emotions she could not explain.

This cloud burst would last for days
but now she understands
it was not all her own pain.

Sensitive to those around her,
their heartache she felt,
their tears were her tears.

She has better control now,
can differentiate between
her own emotions and the sadness of others.

She felt deeply then and still does.

Massacre December 16

Massacre December 16

Death does not ask for a time or place
only Almighty knows
Who could have anticipated the horror
of December 16?
blood from the clouds

The untimely mass murder of innocence
Martyred
Fearless with their weapons of destruction
The trend of the modern world
not forgetting a war against God

Innocent cries reached the highest heaven,
shaking Almighty’s throne
Now their abode,
awaiting their parents at heavens doors

The anguish of mothers’ loss
Fruit of fathers’ loins
Calculated and heartless
Massacred in the name of religion
Truth be told

but for power and greed
Blaming God and His religions
Cursed and doomed to hell fire
where they will relive this event
as flames lick and burn their
rotten souls

“Simple life”

“Simple life”

Gumboots on her feet
Skirt pulled above her knees
Her long braid coiled on top of her head
She sits in the sun on a rock
A bucked between her feet
Plucking the feathers of a foul slaughtered a few hours prior
With the back of her hand she dabs trickling sweat from her forehead
Humming one of Damian’s compositions

Away from the hustle and bustle of the city
she can think clearly
He went back to Istanbul, to his family home
His father demanded that he be there to meet with diplomats
“She’s a peasant girl?!” She heard his mother exclaim
So much has been said that Delilah fled to her own family home
Their simple life is what she needed
He promised to follow her if she tried running

She did not realize how much she missed it all
Even the monotony of the never ending chores
She is glad to be home
Letting go of the love of her life
Her parents having seen her distraught face
Respected her, “not now please”
Thankful for her exhaustion at night, she sleeps peacefully

More at easy and falling in line with everybody’s needs
In the afternoon she was singing to the rhythm of the bees
While brushing her damp hair in the waning sun
Her blouse tied in a knot above her bellybutton
She sways too the song in her heart
A sudden cloud burst and she was soaked through
So much for drying her hair

For a moment she closed her eyes
Her head tilted back, her hands cupped, to catch the rain
She remembered their first kiss
Damian’s aftershave still fresh on her breath
She could hear him sing his song to her
When she opened her eyes there we was
His arms open to receive her into his embrace

“Dance with me tonight
Oh Delilah, Delilah,
my hearts is calling you
I am your Samson
And you are all that I need
My world is brighter with you therein
Yea-yea-yea Oh Delilah
You are my love, my queen
Come into my arms
Come as you are
Let’s dance tonight….”

They have missed each other as much as there is water on the earth
Delilah did not need a second invitation
In a wink she was in his arms
on tip-toe dancing with her beloved
Oblivious of the thunder and lightning
With fiery heartbeats they danced to the tune of two souls and one heart
Then he swept her up into his arms and carried her inside
Her family elated in smiles and tears

“I Felt You Then I Smiled”

“I Felt You Then I Smiled”

I am embracing the fragrances of a wonderful new day.
My heart is at peace.
You wowed me the first time I felt you then I smiled
Your melodious voice, strong and handsome
Delicious to my ears
As savoured on my tongue the honey coated cashew nuts
Thumping my heart at best
When you said “I Love you baby”
Home in your arms
Warm and cuddly inside your coat
Leaning my cheek on your broad shoulders
My arms wrapped around your waist
You are the aroma of a spicy cup of chai

I am embracing the fragrances of a wonderful new day
My heart is at peace
Your breath warm on my ear as you kiss my cheek
Completely and utterly enchanted by your kind beautiful heart
My love I fell head over heels in love with your soul
The man that you have become
Yes the world is at my feet, I can pick and choose at will
But it is your simplicity that compliments me in every way
I am you, you are me
We are outcasts, understanding each other and knowing each other’s souls
We share the same views
Our frequencies entwined
Ecstatically happy to read each other as open books

We embraced the fragrances of that wonderful new day
My heart was at peace
I felt you then I smiled
Your heart reached out from across seven seas
Your heart unknowingly merged with mine
I smiled knowing that eventually you would come to me
With love in your eyes and fire in your heart that equalled my own
Our dance of fragrant spices churns
Cocooning us in a soft Divine light guiding our togetherness
Spontaneous and elated

Wholesome and true

Wholesome and true

They found themselves in each other
with a fire only they understand
hearts pounding to the same rhythmic tune

They love with their souls
Intense yet lyrically playful
Hopeless romantics

He is her hero
He stands up for her when need be
He loves her tenderly

She utterly adores him
Trusts in him whole heartedly
She smiles contentedly as she watches him sleep

She is his world
Soon they will be three
He kisses her stomach possessively

They found in each other a nurturing love wholesome and true
To grow and bloom in each other
Eternally ever after
