I and the Poet

*cough cough *Cleans up the dust from the blog :P

Hello all! It's been so long since I have posted anything here! The blog got dusty. No worries though, I got it all cleaned up and I put some "bukhoor" also for you my dear visitors ;)

I came to you with this new poem. I have finished it sometime ago and I just added a stanza today so I hope you like it. It is kinda a complimentary poem "qaseedat mad7" for myself lool :P


I and the Poet

In my self-chosen isolation
I live a life of my own choice
Surrounded by my own shadows
And hearing my own voice

Lost in this harsh reality
And was found in one of my own
I get my thoughts to my company
Feeling lonely and long to be alone

I write stories on the wall
That only dreamers can read
And I draw paintings of fantasies
All imaginations, will exceed

I create a different world
Of so many beautiful things
And fly around the blue sky
With my poetic wings

I plant flowers between the lines
And my ink waters the trees
And my poems they have a scent
When you read you feel the breeze

Like this part most, and it reminds of some film I've seen long time ago !!

Keep the good work :)

Which film? I remember in 7akayat 3alamiya that boy who drew things on the wall and they became real but I don't know any film!
Thanks :)

True Faith:
A cool breeze indeed ;)

I love your poem, nicely solitary and very simple. I salute thee fellow dreamer ;)

"And was found in one of my won"
I didn't understand this part though!

Peach:
Oh don't embarrass me! I don't know the types of bukhoors :P

Yeah when the lonely part came I remembered all the bloggers that talked about how they enjoy being alone and so on including you of course :D

I meant my own reality compared to the harsh reality of the world.
