Sincerely in Love by Hanan Al-Faiadh

I pray to stop praying
I pray to stop saying
Stop the trail.

And when my words, sentiments fail
Only poetry shall heal, unveil
Unnail truths in hearts
Tired,
Stale.

Terror haunts east and west
Terror slays heart, knees, chest
I fall at your door, dearest mercy
Can you see me wanting more?
More than mercy?
For others’ souls..?
There is no more.

No compassion for human kind
No devotion, no emotion…

A chess game,
Reasons,
Paranoia.
Is there really a reason?
To kill a precious soul
In the name of God, treason?
There is no reason.

Don’t play my heart
into thoughts of hate, horror
For my heart is bold
and weighed in gold.

My God, Your God
We pray to the same God.
Love defies terror.

I pray to stop praying
I pray to stop saying
Stop the trail.

I want to tell a different tale
I want to dance, love, be
I want you to just be

Sincerely,
In Love.
