Stand Still

Stand still Feet buried in sand, deep like a statue   Stand still tidal waves will come crashing but you will not drown   © 2014 ALIA SULTAN  

Mirror, Mirror

On top of the hill where greens howl in twilight You lay where fields of purple are in sight   Crickets sing from afar But there is silence in your head and dewdrops in your heart   You are An island harshly separated Falling into an abyss, head down mirrors flicker and your name echoes eternally  ...

The Axis

Your words echoed in my head You said you were going to find me I did not hear your words Yet your silhouette sinked in my head And seeped inside my blood     You said I'd recognize you when I see you And I'd hear you whisper inside my head when it's crowded You'd call... Continue Reading →

Flaming Monsters

Pull yourself together Do not break down You know you are far stronger than the monsters in your head   Direct your feelings to what is really worthy And believe in the power of letting go   Look at the sky it mourns for the dead by shining brighter and rebirthing   Feel the moon...

2 AM

He Lay Down Beside Me

I was a volcano erupting of tears, long suppressed tears of anger that finally surrendered. I have been piling up everything I couldn't speak of. Behind the notion of being a warrior with a rusty armor, I was afraid, and I was alone. He stood at the door for a minute as I was weeping,... Continue Reading →

Heartbeats

It’s 3 A.M and the sound of heavy rain cracking his window half-open wakes him up while his phone is loudly ringing. He picks up as thunder breaks the fragile clouds to pieces, and so they weep rain. There’s heavy breathing on the other end And he’s half-asleep. It takes him a while until he... Continue Reading →
