Deadly words of love

Deadly Words /......... by Sami Khalil

...................................................................

( A sort of contemplations on love )

At last, I leave it to our fate finding what is in store

for us, for I have given up on the world but not on you,

where I can feel the desire in your voice and the resistance

in your heart.

I don’t need much talent to tell you:"I love you",

I need more courage and self-esteem.

Then, if you feel my words are out of place,

do know that my feelings are in the right one

for so many words are profoundly deadly, but the words

of love, they give life to the dead. 

And as delicate as you are in the wind,

you are the strength in my heart and the compass

to my lonely flight.

Knowing that everything has many impacts,

I attest that the impact of love is either death or bliss.

So please, let all stars collide tonight sparing my light, of love

reaching out to touch me before I melt into those eyes.

Embrace me either way,

for as love embraces us in his arms,

we embrace love in our acceptance.

I would rather lose all lonely nights and not

a single dream of you.

It strikes me how you compete with nature,

always winning  in the end.

And it strikes the world how,

releasing my pain, it makes me win and gain.

Oh, beloved, between the ocean and I,

between a sunset dressed in amber,

and a night dressed in dreams, I feel the fire and thirst.

For neither the ocean nor the nights can quench

a thirst or a fire, but you.

And if fire awakens darkened souls,

your love awakens sleepy hearts.

"And as delicate as you are in the wind,
you are the strength in my heart, and the
compass to my lonely flight"... These words are
entwined with flowers and honeysuckle vines,
truly, Pat

your writing reminds me of Kahlil Gibran..

" Then, if you feel my words are out of place,
do know that my feelings are in the right one
for so many words are profoundly deadly, but the words
of love, they give life to the dead.
And as delicate as you are in the wind,
you are the strength in my heart and the compass
to my lonely flight. "

beautifully penned..

Sami Khalil,
I hear the rise and fall of Love's natural rhythm within your poem "Deadly Words." From "for I have given up on the world but not on you" to "so many words are profoundly deadly but words of love they give life."Love is either death or bliss." This whole thing has a blending and meaning within one line to the next. I read it, analyzed."Let all stars collide tonight....I would rather lose all lonely nights and not a single dream of you." Last but not least........"You compete with nature.." Love this! Bless you Mr. Poet! Kathy

Beautiful and soul wrenching... Absolutely masterfully crafted.

*I don’t need much talent to tell you:"I love you",
I need more courage and self-esteem.*

This is simply amazing.

*I would rather lose all lonely nights and not
a single dream of you.
It strikes me how you compete with nature
always winning in the end.*

Awe struck, I have always seen love interest as a force of nature, crossing the fringes of our minds, into the complex reality of everyday interaction...

I enjoyed piece and found it to be wonderfully written and expressed. These particular four lines I really enjoyed and stood out to me;

"I would rather lose all lonely nights and not

a single dream of you.

It strikes me how you compete with nature

always winning in the end."

The last four lines were also fantastic, very enjoyable piece.

I love the line "I would rather lose all lonely nights and not a single dream of you" -- a very romantic piece, penned in your own particular style. Well done.

The las four lines made me wonder around about the concept of love and its down fall. Either you say it and let the person judge you or remain shy with regrets. Your writing made me go back and forth. Lovey write and presentation
