~ Past Tense ~

by A. L. O'Prunty


Hand in hand
Grass of Parnassus envelopes;
Our legacy shall live on
As the orchards
Tenderly nurtured
Firmly rooted
On the edge of possibility
Arriving at the age of tomorrow

Runaway From Heaven

by Noura M.MouSsa

Would you run away from heaven?
We both know I won’t be there,
Take me back to empty earth,
Whole planet for just ourselves,
Would you run away from heaven?

I’ve once considered you a crime,

But Sir, I can’t help but notice,

A quenched fire has come to life,

Now it’s time for me to recidivate.

My heart reaction was capricious,

At the your enchantment scent,

But always knew it, I cannot antagonize,

My feelings rise and them I can’t abate.

The Mystery

by Noura M.MouSsa

They met one day at the shore,

She didn’t see him , she was alone,

No one like her he’s seen before,

Kept Beholding her, from sunset through the dawn.

She watches the sea,

He watches her,

She watches the sky,

He watches her golden hair.

Mind Doodles

by Noura M.MouSsa

Close my eyes knowing that;

Nights do not carry me,

Sunlight doesn’t fancy me.

A good dream doesn’t fit my mind,

And Some does apply for good days,

Any good goes on separate ways.

I’m trying to hold on to something moving,

Something to breathe life into me,

Because everything is static,

Everything seems sufficiently dead.

Ice giving in to fire,

Fire, too frustrated to melt the ice,

Even the fire seems cold,

Its element, has the world lost,

Dust has conquered the air,

The air has become too heavy for one’s to breathe,

No one has died, but there’s a reason to grieve.

Soon Enough, A Requiem

by Noura M.MouSsa

Soon enough;

A laugh turns into tear,

Remembrance is murderous,

A joyful memory, now a bittersweet one.

Soon enough;

A story becomes history,

Yellow pages on a floor,

In the ruins of home that no one visits anymore.

A Devilish Conspiracy

by Noura M.MouSsa

I see the devil dressed as an angel,
But only I have that knowledge,
A knowledge that I consider a curse,
Nothing I would share with someone else,
I see a smile, they all admire,
My bruises are shown, suddenly seem clear,
They think my envy is turning into fear,
But I am not to tell why we’re both here,
When angels come a devil goes,
But when a fallen angel dies another on falls,
They gave me knowledge but not the power,

April Fool

by Noura M.MouSsa

Wake up, the rain is gone,

The sun is up, cozy and warm,

He said as he took his umbrella and coat,

“What kind of paradox is this?” as he left I thought.

I enter my brain and go back to a time,

My mind told me she will stay forever but days went by,

And as fast as a weary man closes his eyes to sleep,

Her departure like a knife ran fast to cut me so deep.

by Noura M.MouSsa

You change shapes before I could memorize them,

Your temper I learned by the heart,

I keep following the same rhythm,

When you decide all over again I have to start.

You have one hand on my mouth  and one holding me down,

Then a third arm appears to hold me from the waist,

Suddenly you’re an octopus and I know we will drown,

That thought  is a weight held on my chest.

The Crowd

by Noura M.MouSsa

Sitting in what should be a state of joy,
A celebration and everybody’s content,
But my heart is stuck in a funeral,
To be Pleased and happy I couldn’t pretend.

I’m not like anyone I don’t belong with any crowd,
My face speaks, my eyes screams,
But no one could hear me cause the music is very loud,
And being heard was one of my far-off dreams.

Dance With The Devil

by Noura M.MouSsa

You can leave him and go to heaven,
but still you choose to dance with the devil,
He makes you feel warm with his cold eyes,
In your ears he whispers his well known lies,
He holds your hands with his,
filled with blood,
he makes you think he’s the only hope you got,
He brings you beautiful gown
then compliment it,
At a point you wish he had never sent it,
His eyes will kill your joy, steal your youth,
