Quietness Melts Me


Quietness melts me.

Haunting thoughts heats up my chest.

Breathe life to my dreams.

Move to your own beat


Move to your own beat.

Feel the sound, drown out the world.

Attack your passion.

I send you thoughts as you sleep


Tingling sensation.

I send you thoughts as you sleep.

Rising exctasy.

Kiss Me Until I Can’t Breathe


My heart beats slower.

Kiss me until I can’t breathe.

Time for me to rest.

Your Love Locked Every Trigger And Opened My Pen


Amira . . . princess.
Your love locked every trigger
and opened my pen.

(I was inspired to write this haiku poem while writing my 2nd novel based in Iraq during the U.S. occupation. I’m about 79% done with 63,250 words.)
