Piece by piece,

He unraveled my inner peace.

And all of these viscous, sharp words I hold in,

Cut at my soul instead of his.

He cast me as the queen,

Of his messed up fantasy.

I want the passion,

Man who can talk to me & really see,

Lately the apathy has been killing me.

The fiery rage spread through my veins,

It feels like if I touched him I could set him aflame.

You love me,

This is true.

But where do I come in with,

The habits, routines & addictions that you’re attached to?

I am the kindest kind of crazy,

My emotions eat me alive.

And my throat burned from all the fire,

I was too tender to speak.

I get discouraged because he doesn’t understand me,

But he says I am everything, then how could he?

Trying to connect with stone, Fixed,

Doesn’t he want to feel alive?

He shuts me out at the worst times,

And I’m expected to give it time.

I open my heart,

Outside his brick wall.

I’m only true to him,

For my own inner peace.

Cutting my hands on the iron,

Of his unbendable edges.

I know he’ll hear me,

But never speak.

Darling! center of my universe is you,

But the issue is that you’re yours too.

In a weird place,

He just returned to me.

But I don’t know this time,

If he’ll stay or leave.

The Monstrous Me

Give it time they say,

And growth is always pain.

How do you know if it’s growth anyway?

When we crash in life it all feels the same.  

Searching for advice but no suggestions fit,

Looking for signs but there are no stars for this.

The gods rip me apart for their master plan,

Growing pains just let me keep my heart.

This black cloud hovers all my nights & days,

The least it could do is show me the way.

The lesson is patience and self-restraint,

My angels make me wait.

Dear Universe! the air is cold,

And I can’t hold on more.

I’ve become afraid to wish,

The universe gives but takes away.

Magic and pain,

It’s hard to explain.

So I’ll let my emotions consume me,

Swallow me.

Until I become,

The monstrous me.

My soul & It’s crazy little adventures

There was a deep me,

A geek me,

A peaceful me,

A dreadful me,

A lover in me,

And some fire in me.

But I?

I am ready to grow,

My soul & it’s crazy little adventures.

I follow my heart,

And won’t apologize for it.

I’m an energy snob & not a snob,

There’s a difference.

Does it mean that I have scattered faith?

If I kept myself at a neutral place?

You know, just in case,

Don’t doubt what you don’t know.

I etched some dreams in stone,

Under this full moon.

Making thought magic under Orion,

The stars love my words,

And draw arrangements,

Forces of inspiration,

So these words will be created,

Stuck in solo ways.

There are changes coming soon.

I would sacrifice half of me to deal with the world,

If I have to.

I’ve been through too much to not have a safety net.

Wrong, smart, or all of the above,

There’s always a plan B,

There’s always a plot twist in my stories.

I understand intoxication,

You’re free to say & do what you feel.

You just know a part of me,

I’m a universe full of mysteries.

Maybe my issue was I was raised with promise of a fairy tale,

In a generation full of pride & walls.

But how do you fly freely in a bitter world?

The truth is,

I wasn’t used to this.

I never cared to speak about me,

I’ll speak of the seas,

The stars in the skies,

Before I reveal what’s inside.

My soul?

Its a free bird.

So I should let her go up high,

Releasing my burdens,

One at a time.

Because I want to be free,

And I want to fly.

Keep your words

Always keep your words,

They mean everything to me.

Why ask what I want,

And then not fulfill?

Remember! I gave you the option of free will,


I understand me,

And that was enough.

So if  you understand this,

You know self-love.

The daily struggle,

The daily trip,

Must not be a damsel in distress.

Play with all of my demons,

And I’ll love the ones in you.

But promise that through the chaos,

You’ll stay?

As I’ll stay too.

Quick! but I don’t chase,

So before you pull away,

Just know it won’t be the same.

A dreaded feeling all day about it,

And once your coldness hits me,

I couldn’t tell if I had predicted,

Or attracted it.

We are both sensitive,

Just in separate ways.

So maybe we aren’t that different,

Even though we don’t love the same.

I respect what you don’t say,

And appreciate what you show.

Filling your space with love & light,

I need it grown up.

No attention seeking,

No score for keeping,

No extras,

Just you & me.

You are so fixed,

My rock by the sea.

And I am the waves crashing & consuming,

A mermaid drifting & moving along the fluidity.

My truths seem to be stranger than fiction,

Might not be sweet to anyone but me.

Power Within

I’m one of the easiest souls to sail with,

So please don’t rock the boat.

I’m a loving one,

I don’t care for friction,

But I’ll fight for fairness.

Love wars,

I don’t want strategy.

Mind games,

I don’t want tragedies.

Keep it simple.

Peace on our piece of Earth.

Show love to someone who seems unlovable.

We’ve all carried a heavy heart,

But not all have been carried away in love.

If there is a heaven,

I’ve felt it.

And if there is a hell,

I’ve been there.

But if you know me,

You know how much I love.

And if I love you,

You know how far I’ll go.

My soul’s purpose?

To heal your’s.

A soul’s recovery.

I hope the world doesn’t change me.

Legend has it,

If a King & Goddess part,

With elements & cold hearts,

Then this will be the coldest winter of them all.

I believe in a divine power that drives the Earth.

A natural power that’s all around,

  And most importantly within us.

-By Maroof


I’m convinced cynicism is contagious,

Fascinated by people puzzles.

If you can dish but you can’t take,

Don’t challenge me to a fun sarcasm game.

It’s in my nature to mirror whom I interact with,

I chose kind & cool over pride & ego trips.

I trust my intuition before another’s opinion,

I can feel for myself.

Not all minds fit in my destination,

Sorry to the ones who’ve been left behind.

I should not be afraid to love,

And why should I be afraid to confess,

If my love is my honesty?

I have no energy for enemies,

They’re present in peace or not at all.

I know I can fight like a warrior,

When I have to be.

See my dear! In the end,

The good one always wins.

These words I say,

I mean them,

Not because they sound good.

The thing about wanderers is,

We never know where we’ll end up indefinite journey.

Swimming through seas of thought,

Music, night & the moon,

I wander off.

Through the night,

I heal.

Be free,

Just like me.

Heart Art

Maybe the universe is kind to you,

When you are kind to the world.

He is my rock,

My stability to come back to while I swim,

When I’m away searching for answers.

I feel him more clearly now.

My old soul meets his new soul.

Let me show you the way.

So as long as there is love to give & take,

Everything between us will remain the same.

Be my protector,

But learn what I need protection from.

Catching eyes,

So I stay close by his side.

I know where I belong,

I’ll let them know this too.

Its a heart


I couldn’t find his heart on his sleeve,

So I listen when he speaks.

Hoping for secrets or keys,

Clues for me.

My darling! Have anyone ever loved you like this?

I speak in riddles,

He speaks with harshness.

We get nowhere with words.

If I want to be with him,

I have to sometimes be without him.


But then we come together.

I am too attached to this togetherness.

I want to touch him.

With my affections & thoughts.

Be mindful of your mood,

Cause it affects mine too.

Will stay beside you always, I vow,

Honey! Am I allowed to love you now?


 – By Maroof


Like moon & stars

I do belong to you.

Far away,

But we flow.

Like moon & stars, you know?

To my soul

Every characteristic you’ve shown,

Every quality you own,

Those softer pieces that only I’ve known.

Maybe I don’t say the right things enough,

And maybe you don’t open up,

But I like us.

I know your soul.

When I picture a King,

I see powerful energy,

Strength and integrity,

You’re that to me.

My moon & stars, you know?


– By Maroof



Sitting in a crowded room,

Neither happy, nor full of gloom.

Feeling everything yet nothing at all,

Not rising but not ready to fall.

These mixed feelings are making me numb,

Them emotions, I am going to snub.

I don’t feel love, I don’t feel pain,

Your endless efforts of making me your Juliet will now go in vain.

Don’t come for me, I am a stone,

That delicate little girl is gone.
