A Garden

Honey suckles entwined within this rib cage of mine.
Love from these veins nourish their vines.
A tongue drenched in kindness, words drip off tasting sweet.
Rose buds blossom along these blemished cheeks.
The laughter of children echo in my ears.
I haven’t felt at peace like this in years. – S.Alaa


Look down at the space between you and I,
Look down at the hundreds of footprints made by other’s who have left my side.
Look at the shattered shards of glass on the floor,
Look carefully at how each piece puzzles into the glass heart I once had before.
You think I am affected by what your steps will do?
I will politely open and close the door for you. – S . Alaa
