The Most Beautiful Flower

by markfahmy

flower

Once I thought,
that the most beautiful flower
grows in the middle of fields.
And among the lush green,
she sways and dances with the breeze.

Her

by markfahmy

her

I look at her as she dreams her mind away,
like she always does.
And I cannot find the words I want to say,
every one of my thoughts seems to have run away.

She smiles quietly and holds my hand,
and stars in far away galaxies would jubilantly dance.
My heart pumps more blood to my mind that does not understand,
how can a simple girl own my world with a single glance?

Forever Glow

by markfahmy

forever-glow

At some point the rivers of your life will suddenly stop,
your time will have come to leave this world behind.
And that little heart of yours will cease to hop,
while your soul starts floating towards the light it tries to find.

You Never Know

by markfahmy

train

The thing about life is,
that you never know..

You never know who you hurt with the words you spoke,
or whose heart you accidentally broke.

You never know who you damaged every bit of their soul,
or whose shine you mercilessly stole.

Believe In You

by markfahmy

believe

If you ever believe in anything so strongly,
then I hope you do believe in you.
And dismiss all the shit that was said to you, wrongly,
along with that damaging self-talk you tell yourself too.

There Isn’t Time

by markfahmy

thereisnttime

I hope you realise before it’s already too late.. that there isn’t time.

There isn’t time for you to feel worthless,
There isn’t time for you to feel sorry for yourself,

There isn’t time to sink into the waters of the past,
There isn’t time to recount the failures of yesterday,
There isn’t time to dwell on relationships that didn’t last,
There isn’t time to repress the words you always wanted to say..

Like A Sunflower

Like a sunflower in a sunny field,
she would smile at everyone,

as if every face she met was her sun.

On One Knee

by markfahmy

on-one-knee

You look at me,
with eyes full of light
Like a hundred windows to your soul
opening so bright.

You smile, and I,
struck with such unparalleled beauty,
cannot but smile at your pretty face
as the sun behind us fades.

Mirrors

by markfahmy

Mirrors reflect
what we wish to see
Mirrors tell
of other people we’re dying to be

Mirrors speak
what we’d like to hear
Mirrors hide
what we want to see disappear

In Life I Discovered

by markfahmy

in-life-i-discovered

In life
I discovered
that the more you give thanks ,
the more you receive.

the more you recite the good moments,
the more they come running towards you.
the more you wonder in awe at this vast Earth,
the more you are born again like new.

Ticking Clocks

by markfahmy

clock-arrows
The clocks kill me with their relentless ticking
Like a march of hungry soldiers in search of war
Blood and bones instead of the fruits I should be picking
Clock arrows ferociously eating inside my core

A Tiny Drop

by markfahmy
single-drop
If the world is an ocean
And, I, just a drop
That moves along the collective wave motion
Secretly wishing that it would stop
 
Whirlwinds, tornadoes circulating through
And I, a tiny drop, in the midst of it all
Does not know what it should do
Bumping and turning till it finds its role

To Me

by markfahmy

I hope you know.. that to me,

You were the blossoming flowers of spring,
You were the precious diamonds shining on an engagement ring,
You were the source of light to my everything.

Traveling

As the plane climbs up the stairs to where a million stars lie,
My head seems to swim through the perfect black sky

Miles ahead,
Meters below,
Beyond me are adventures only fate does know

Solitude

by markfahmy

sometimesAlone

Sometimes alone is where all your answers lie;
Sometimes in the wilderness of your thoughts, you’re no longer shy;
Sometimes deep in the silence of solitude, there you find your soul;
Sometimes in the midst of your own space, you get to realise your whole.

Apart

by markfahmy

sunoflove

You call me yours,
I call you mine.
Our sun of love starts to shine.

But on the road,
we draw the line;
both pretending we’ll be fine.

It Takes Courage

by markfahmy

pexels-photo-30285-large

It takes courage to admit that the life you’re currently living isn’t making you any happier..
It takes courage to realise that your life is tailored to a size not your own..
It takes courage to notice that the path you’re walking through is not meant for you..
It takes courage to become aware that your inner values do not match the daily things you do..
It takes courage to finally stand up and admit that all the dreams you once had have fallen through..

May Your Suffering

by markfahmy

May your suffering grant you even more hope
May your suffering prove to be your lifesaving rope
May your suffering help you unlock your deepest passion
May your suffering fill you with the sincerest type of compassion

To My Love

by markfahmy

pexels-photo-25866-large

The moment I saw you, was the moment the butterflies in my stomach flew
The moment I saw you, I met the reality of a dream I once drew
The moment I saw you, I saw my reality anew

Your presence makes my heart leap in disbelief
My puzzle pieces have finally found their matching piece

As You Go Through Your Worst

by markfahmy

pexels-photo-54566 (1)

As you go through your worst of the worst,
I want you to know, someone has been through it and out before

someone has felt this pain of heart before,
someone has grown this hopeless before,
someone has thought he’d lost it all before,

Depression

One more day
One more day you pull yourself through
One more day you search for any clue
One more day you choose to see the light
One more day you decide to fight

If I May

by markfahmy

IMG_20150529_154234

If I may, I’d like to start again.
If I may, I’d like to begin anew.
As if nothing ever happened.
As if hurt never took place.
As if today was the start of a new phase.

Bring this peeking calendar down.
Along with the tedious eyes of this town.

I Walk Away

I walk away.

I walk away out of the guilt.

I walk away out of the shame.

I walk away never again the same.

I walk away from you who caused me pain.

I walk away from the the plethora of feelings you used to feign.

In Your Eyes

by markfahmy

IMG_20150414_002027

I lost myself in your eyes
Lost my very own existence
Lost the pieces that tied me to my past

Drowning in your ocean so deep
Waters so clear
Like a fortune-teller’s crystal ball

Self-Reflection

by markfahmy

Questions questions on my mind,
Curious questions of every kind.
Who am I in the first place?
Would it help if I looked at my face?
Or would I get lost again and find no trace?

I Left It All

by markfahmy

I left it all

Once and for all

Everything that was there

Did not deserve my care

Broke Free

by markfahmy

I cherished my own soul one day
Emerged out of the dull surface of clay
I opened my eyes and saw the dawn
Crossed the many limits that were drawn

It Wasn’t Me

by markfahmy

It wasn’t me
It wasn’t me you used to see
I wasn’t there
I wasn’t in the moments we used to share
