I told you how much I loved you,
And how much you loving me meant to me.
I told you that if I looked at my whole life,
You were one of the best things that happened to me.
I asked you to forgive me for all the hurtful words I said.
I only said them because I was so angry that you stopped loving me.
So you said : "okay"
And I said :
"This is exactly why we are here,
I deal with my feelings by expressing them and you deal with yours by avoiding them. "
We both went silent.
You- because you knew I was saying the truth,
And me- because I knew there was nothing left to say. -Najwa Zebian
Ancient Egyptians had fifty words for sand & the Eskimos had a hundred words for snow. I wish I had a thousand words for love, but all that comes to mind is the way you move against me while you sleep & there are no words for that.
You picked me up
like a trash
me in a corner
with a bunch
of my rotten pieces...
I never complained
I allowed my
being to be
Yes, my eyes are
as naive as a child
staring at an
empty... You don't mind
the bruises on
my innocent soul.
You just took
advantage of me...
but I was too blind to see.
