you were meant to be extraordinary
but youre too afraid

Nami Danam -Amir Khusrau

Nami danam chi manzil bood shab jaay ki man boodam;
baharsu raqs-e bismil bood shab jaay ki man boodam.
Pari paikar nigaar-e sarw qadde laala rukhsare;
sarapa aafat-e dil bood shab jaay ki man boodam.
Khuda khud meer-e majlis bood andar laamakan Khusrau;
Muhammad shamm-e mehfil bood shab jaay ki man boodam.

Translation:

I wonder what was the place where I was last night,
all around me were half-slaughtered victims of love, tossing about in agony.
There was a nymph-like beloved with cypress-like form and tulip-like face,
ruthlessly playing havoc with the hearts of the lovers.
God himself was the master of ceremonies in that heavenly court,
oh Khusrau,
where (the face of) the Prophet too was shedding light like a candle.

I promise

one of these days
youll find me dead
or dying
in a field of tulips
at sunrise
and
it will be the most beautiful thing youve ever seen

Breathe.

some nights
its hard
to hide the melancholy
in your eyes

For better or for worse.

coffee stained love letters
never sent
help keep you warm
on some of the coldest nights.

4:48 am

somewhere
between an aching body
and an aching soul
is a heart
that hopes
for a ceasefire
between the ego and the conscience
