Light Benders                      by Sami Khalil 


Here, time loiters in immortality, wheezing the breath of life…an earthen merchant, unencumbered, slithering away like a snake.


Here, I had a second coming, struggling with deep rasps, with unused verbs.


We know our time is short, a disenchanted truth, hung on a crescendo, on high timidity, on savory places.


Here, I once knew the irresistible traces of love, the lavish shattering of war, the accidental claims of clouds, the platitude story lines, the thrusted ambitions of man where with his success comes many a catastrophe.


Here, with a bleating heart, I held you close to my oblivion. I unfurled our world, the one born blind, bending inalienable light through it.


What a woman to show without reservations, without sign intervention! I tipped you out of balance to my windowless soul, to my unified tones, to my clash of disbeliefs, neither suspicious nor superior.

I was devoured by your love in seamless senselessness. I went greener on either side of seasons’ anticipation, extolled.


Here, between the now and forever, this earthen merchant stands victorious in derelictions of duty, aimlessly decrepit.  


Here, I hold you where the mountains meet the sea, where the bouquet of roses unfolds in flamboyance, where shadows hide beneath satin sheets.


Here, on rainbow Fantasy!

Thank you so much Moon for this brief and lovely visit. All appreciated.
The complex shades of season and love is worded very smartly. Nature, universe and love are related and can be compared so elegantly and truthfully especially when it comes to love. Great job Sami

this is writ’ so eloquently and delicately with such divine profoundness of
the complexity of crossing fine lines of love, lovers’ their
souls together entwined yet realizing the need to set
boundaries for ourselves. unbound yet need for hearts to be cautious

imagery, language and fluidity quite enchanting. very reminiscent of
the great romantic poets of past...J. Keats and others.

always a treat, for me to delve into your quill’s artistry

so grateful to you for sharing your poetic gems! - :))))

the complexities of love in all it's facets, twists & turns. the good, the bad & the ugly. we will do anything for it. that is the beauty of it. we enter into it skeptically or head-over heals. we become vulnerable and merge countires to form one world never quite knowing where it will lead. wonderful wording and flow. cool, enlightening title. good stuff ... :)
