Have you ever screamed or wanted to scream til you couldn't scream anymore?  Til your lungs gave in and your throat became sore? Til you can no longer think straight to be reminded of pain?
To the point of maybe where you would collapse...become numb...or not be able to feel? So everything wouldn't feel so damn real?....

I have died a thousand deaths...
And I have been resurrected each time
By the love of my Creator...
Tons have pushed me down
When He has picked me up...
Others have deserted me while the
Beloved has been my company in the loneliest of days,
Darkest of nights and saddest of hours..
I have died a thousand deaths...
And I have been resurrected each time
By the love of my Creator...(C)

She pinches herself every day in hopes that she wakes up 
from this dream...
But it doesn't work...
This must be the longest nightmare she's ever had....(c)

“Your task is not to seek for love, 
but merely to seek and find all the barriers 
within yourself that you have built against it.”

"You send me love letters in the moon"
the night said to the sun.
"And I leave you my answer
as tears upon the grass"

The Subject Tonight is Love-Hafiz

The subject tonight is Love

And for tomorrow night as well,

As a matter of fact

I know of no better topic

For us to discuss

Until we all

Die!


For those not familiar with the symbology of Love by Rumi/Hafiz, it is not love as in man meets woman only, its mainly Love for the Divine presence...

The moon broke, 2nd part

The clouds cried for her,
and with each drop of rain that fell from the sky,
they reflected her tears,
the thunder grumbled in unison with her cries...(c)

Listening to this always brings me to tears....hittin the spot right now...



The moon broke tonight,

saddened by her sighs..

she stared at it with eyes like dark pools of sorrow...

The moon couldn't bear it,

just like her heart, 

he shattered into pieces...

there will be no full moon tomorrow...(c)

Rain thoughts...

Pitter-patter...pitter-patter goes the sound of love-showers...
thunder grumbles softly...
Birds chirping...
raindrops falling on leaves,
the sound of its union is incomparable...
this melody of nature brings ease to my heart...
I would take this moment and swallow it whole
just to know that I have it as a part of me now...
This moment, I wish to stop in time and to hold on forever...
Satin cherry blossom petals become drenched in this serum of life...
meadows drink the elixir, this blessing from the Creator,
thriving from it's purpose...
I too thrive...
For my soul drinks this up as if my thirst has never been quenched...
My heart longs to jump out of my chest and to dance in the rain, 
leaving everything behind...
I wait for that moment, and so I hold on to patience...
As for now, I have captured this moment with my words,
never letting it go...
How I love the rain....(c)
