Mourning coffee

by TarekOfCairo

All the worlds sorrow
Today is kept
For one family
To bear…not to share
In the shaded bitterness
Of my suger-free
mourning Coffee
I numbly sip, sniff and stir

The Jungle ..

A wood like all

and I am imprisoned

between the long legs

and the fallen stems

which breaks under my feet

Hotel room ..

by TarekOfCairo

In a leather bound elegance
proudly they declare
“We will make you feel at home” …

And I say …
It ain’t the tiniest bit like home..

Not with these incredible pillows
Or these milky creamy soaps
Frantically leathery slippery
Like all dashing hopes ..

And the diminutively bottled
fragrant shampoos, creams, gels …
Blah.. blah.. blah…..
With the narrow necks..

Taking a leap of faith

by TarekOfCairo

“Take no risk son”
Mother said
“I fear for you
from a deceitful fate”

The heat under my feet
The heaviness of the stillness
Itching on my sole
.. go..don’t wait ..

The ants and my half cahew ..

by TarekOfCairo

Ants I know are tiny and creepy
Yesterday,they invaded my life
Crawling next, over and under me
And this is a true horror story

Iike noise .. but it was not..
I couldnt see until next to it I knelt
And here it was my poor half nut …

by TarekOfCairo

Two more teeth,

smeared with his blood and my tears
with a weary mind , I guess
how many he still wears ?

 Slam Shut the End ..

by TarekOfCairo

Its not about the noise that follows

from me or the door

When you slam shut the end

Something in flying alone …..

by TarekOfCairo

There is something in flying alone…
Not a driver .. nor a  road…

just… the “go”….

It’s not that I do it often…
It’s not that I love it..

To be ..I mean ..on my own…
But there is magic in piano tunes..
There is  zest in flying alone…
To my comfort zone…

to the longing of an imperceivable lover
Passionately devouring me
When I am hopelessly feeling low ..
