Get well soon!

When you know the truth but fabricate lies. When you know it hurts but you say it nice.
When you overlook the facts and promote myth,
and you say it loudly for your own niche.
When you see someone lying in pool of blood
but you find it an opportunity to shoot and let it flood.
When she seems nothing to you beyond sum of her body parts
When you pretend close to God but Ill treat his creations.
when you meet someone out of work
and forget for ever
When someone needs your help and you say 'never'.
Whenen you proudly boast of growth and progress
Without realizing who paid and what it cost
Then I must say you need to see
someone who can heal you thee.

The decision


Seeing you again amidst the thick noise and crowd,

dissolved me into my past.She was  me.

I smiled but she didn't.

May be my overused cliched expression  didn't entice her.

She was with him,happy and excited.

But too young to travel the Bedouins  territory. 

I had coagulated from bleeding dreams.

And so did want her today's bliss to be tomorrow's  scream.

She become the metaphor of that  moment when I did what she was about to do.

I like an yesterday's  leftover wanted to scream to purge the labyrinth  of ages of agony which I and my Ma had.

Holding back I tried her to explain..

But she was me and so it was all in vain.
