You Give Me Mornings

by markfahmy

you-give-me-mornings

you give my soul a break
from its internal fights
and you give me mornings
in between my nights

you draw me to your sun
after years of living in cold
and you whisper love to my ears
words I’ve never been told

Your Kiss

You plant a kiss on my lips
and inside my soul you grow
lush gardens of swaying trees
and exotic flowers only you would know

Metamorphosis

by markfahmy

metamorphosis

Can a cigarette warm
the coldness of a soul
that stopped giving a damn
about it all?

Can a touch restore
the blood into the veins
of a body that’s been buried
under a million chains?

How?

by markfahmy

how

How can you give up on the only self..
that never gave up on you?

How can you put a full stop to a story..
that involves other people too?

Tonight,
leave my soul
to drown

Halfway

by markfahmy

halfway

you talk words
and I
speak symbols

you make plans
and I
dream far away

you turn off the tune
and I
still hear it play

this time
I won’t let
your soul fall
into the sadness
you feed

I won’t let you
hurt yourself
as I watch
you bleed

First Love

by markfahmy

firstlove

Do you remember
the very first time
you fell in love?
Staying awake
long past bedtime
on a school night

And the butterflies
you felt firing up
in your stomach
every time you
saw her eyes?

If you only knew
the amount of pain

and into my heart
shaking my soul
tearing me apart

I Dream

by markfahmy

idream

I dream not of titles before my name,
nor of trophies to adorn my shelf
I dream my simple heart stays the same;
that I do not lose my undecorated self

I dream not of precious gold,
nor of shallow fame
I dream of having stories to be told,
and of having a bigger aim

Dancefloor

dancefloor

If the world was our dancefloor,
and the DJ could set us free..
If music was the language of our soul,
how different would it be?

I Wonder If

by markfahmy

her

I still feel..
your lips on mine
as I held you close
and your hair did shine
under a million stars
when everything seemed to align.

I wonder if..
you think about me too
when you lie in bed at night
under a million different stars
knowing my heart still belongs to you.

May I?

by markfahmy

mayI

If you’re going through hell,
May I be your drops of rain?
If in your sadness you dwell,
May I ease some of your pain?

If the world has gone black in your melancholic eyes,
May I be a your candles giving out light?
If you’re sinking deeply in your cries,
May I, for once, become your white knight?

Perhaps you were the one
But I knew it not at the time
Perhaps you were my rising sun
But I never took the signs

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

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

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
