Beauty will save the world




Reflections of Time             by Sami Khalil

(Once upon love)



She reached for me

Through the holy and profane

Through prayers and skeletons

There were dashes in our blood

An absent silken kiss

A plead for immortality

A bleed through the hourglass

Indifferent to the enigma

Lingering upon our minds’ chaos and repose.

People had not the faintest ideas

To hearken to the windswept storms

The smoldering eternal forms

Only love did, spoken in a blinding arrogance

For it swears to no one, promises to get done.

She reached for us

Between rocks falling, dreams drowning

To the brine of waves, nights pulling to the stars

To flags waving…for freedom.

almost like we wish it too hard...we want it too much...
and then the kiss of death....we name it....and boom, it is gone.
Love seems better without a label....like this poem, it should just flow...
doesn't need a name, just a feeling....and we can just let that feeling find those "dashes in our blood"
and fill in the rest of the sentence before the period can stop us from loving one another forever.

Hello my friend and you are welcome.
Love is a gentle friend - at its best. Your words flow with truth, hope but perhaps awareness of the torment it has to endure to prove steadfast and eternal. Your three final lines are the end and start, a finale like no other, Sami, ' Between rocks falling, dreams drowning - To the brine of waves, nights pulling to the stars - To flags waving…for freedom. '

In all weathers. fair or foul, in all situations good or bad, in chaos or repose, love conquers all. What a wonderful thought to have a love that can't be rocked despite everything being thrown at it. This poem is a beacon to love, burning fiercely and bright. That dear Sami, is how your words spoke to me. A lovely poem. Love through time.
