I Love Your Hearty Laugh by C. R. Daugherty

I Love Your Hearty Laugh
There’s this lady I’ve met; She’s a woman I know, and I hold her quite closely and dear.
She’s the apple of mine eye, a diamond in the rough, though we share a love of gemstones so queer.
We can spend hours on end spelunking rock gardens for amazing crystals to see
Or moments in the donut shop, being quite overtly crass, over bitter cups of hot jasmine tea.
She is heaven; she is argent… She is the lover I have dreamed of, and I want to be with her throughout—
The cold and the warm, the sun dog and storm, until our time here has run out.

Be Stronger and I Am Human by Ahmad Al-Khatat

Be Stronger
Stronger than before
I’m here under rainfall
Getting stronger than
before, because of you Stronger than feelings
I’m wiser, and faster than
the curious heart breaker
We’re stronger than love You once made me happy
I melted my heart into steel
Just to always remember you
Harder, better than memories Your friendship made me
-stronger than the old times
When I hear your voice alone
I become stronger than death No more castles and empires
Together we are stronger than
greater, higher than old figures
You make the heart grow healthier But the wind of your sweet scent
-were stronger than a drunk soul
Between us there is no intimacy
we strongly keep on shining respect

I Am Human
I am human
from all races
I am looking
for respect,
condition
-attitude
and good
behaviours I am human
dancing with
no silky touch
but on my own
for no reason
sometimes, I
am trying to
live like a human My name is
human being
My age is the
numbers of
days of the
dead fighter
My soul is
already taken Another human
I once met her;
she is the reason
why the ni…

Those Crazy Birds by Ahmad Al-Khatat

Those Crazy Birds
Those birds set free  They never fly again  They don’t sing to you  cause we broke their wings 
Those birds are mute  They are extremely wild  But their sorrows turned  into flightless birds in the cage 
Through the early morning  I’m the caged bird standing  in front of the fragile mirror  Looking for a smaller cage 
This life is a beautiful soul But people have damaged -the birdhouse inside of my  spirit, I will be fine by the blue skies 
Those crazy birds will sing to  us, just keep your head very up Look for meaning and change  -the way you sit under the shadow

Poetry
Let me wander 
Through the caverns  of your soul And, I'll give you  my heart  To eternally hold

Let me explore Just a while Drifting in your kiss Upon true love's Nile

Let me soar Beyond the night To return once more A Phoenix In flight

And let us fall Again and again Into the abyss Deep within

Close The Book by Ahmad Al-Khatat

Image
Close the Book It’s the time to close the book of negativity
Stop flipping over the
pages of wasted years
and stand in front of
-waves of confidence It’s the time to close
the book of remorse
Start creating a place
for satisfaction above
-some dark thoughts
of attempting suicides It’s the time to close
the book of long isolation
I want to feel like I am loved
to my country, back to my life
Smile again without wearing an
emotional smile that lasts forever

Poetry Falling amid the night A shooting star This being of light On a quest from afar... Steadfast her course She whispers goodbye To moonbeams and star-dust, floating on high... Afraid, she is not She perseveres The path long sought Finally clear
And the fall bittersweet As her journey begins This being of light Shining within....
