Supermarket check-out

Had she looked back at me
Even for just a second ...
Our encounter might have been the stuff of tabloid frenzy. 
But she left quickly a coffee in one hand, 
A shopping bag in the other,
And I waited for my turn next in line.

For Two Timing Husbands

How many tears must fall from brown eyes before I lay me down to sleep.
Where hurtful dreams of betrayal and lies hide in shadows they creep.

How long did you think you could go around cheating and not be found out.
With all your two dollar whores and think I'd not scream and shout!

See if they'll put up with your bullsh**, until the next one catches your eye.
As for me I'm done with your no account two timing a** once and for all...

He left
That night locking
Her away with a kiss;
Her soul captured by his spirit,
She stayed.

She waits -
For the spirit
To light her pitch-black days;
To breathe into her missing nights;
She’s still.

Breaking the Chains

You tug and bend at the chains weighing down, 
struggling to even make one small dent. 
You try to burn the chains that have you bound, 
but to no avail... Not one link is bent. 
Cruelty and sadism are expressed here, 
in the holder of the chains who you'd trust; 
and those close-by strive to halt painful tears, 
but the chains make it all a complete bust. 
The chains hold strong from the mind to the source, 
causing loneliness to fill the bruised heart. 
Nothing right now withers those chains of course, 
but nothing is free from breaking apart. 
If all else fails and no progress is made, 
just give those tough chains time to rust and fade.

Dangerous Love

You wanted someone strong; you wanted someone who wouldn’t crack. You thought you were making me tough by breaking me down. You told yourself it was the only way, because I wasn’t the boy you wanted. 
I was a girl, your first born. I was delicate, young, and very impressionable. I grew numb to the pain I became accustom to. 
You succeeded. You made me into someone the world couldn’t shatter, because you can’t break something that’s already in pieces.

Torn To Pieces

Fear haunts silent nights
screams of tears or joy
once cherished
stolen away 

Memories washed up
on a sinking ship
watch as it slips
further away

Torn to pieces
once tightly bound
wholesome and strong
ripped away

Pushed out
unearthed and
unable to see
pretty flowers bloom

Fear of being forgotten
tears tear and torture
fruits turned rotten
gone awry 

Words whispered
soothing and true
warming hearts
daddy I love you

Poem Details | by Khalid Albudoor |

Morning tea is dark
Like the night behind our house
Where the sun lost its way
And the air did not stop to greet our trees.

We gaze at our place where we sat last night
we know 
we'll leave everything behind us
And won't collect the scattered words between the chairs.

Night was long
The candle is dusty and cold like our fingers
Why do we wait for tomorrow
If only to throw our words like pieces of papers 
on the table and leave?

Adrift on love

Adrift...I move through uncharted waters
My boat secure and true
Sirens call to me..pulling me closer
  I gaze at the beauty of their true forms

Yet, they do not hold these forms for long
  they cannot shine because they fear what I see
  they only know what was the past...dark waters

I move forward, to another port, true and secure of myself...Adrift on love

Under What Influence

Sometimes I think I would love you more if I was still drinking. And then I decipher the code: I would love you more if I still loved myself less.

Destruction of love

My Heart is torn out, beats it's last and then no more,

My love stands over me, as I lay on the floor.

She did it, She Killed me, by leaving me a broken man,

Assasinated by my Lover's hand.

She once filled my heart with laughter and song,

She once comforted and loved me all the day long.

Only  secretly cavorting, a plan to steal,

To destroy, to rent out, all I could feel.

It is torn out, beats it's last and then no more,

My love stands over me, as I lay on the floor.

She did it, She Killed me, by leaving me a broken man,

Assasinated by my Lover's hand.

These Sweet Tears

What is that I taste,
these sweet tears that I must cry
Waiting your return,
I am filled with everything
good in life because of you

Don't Leave

You made me smile
But it just lasted for a while
Don't leave, because I don't know why
But that'll just make me cry.

All your memories of being here
Are now getting washed away in tears
Just a little more time
And I'll be left speechless like a mime.

I won't be seeing you after this
All that bliss, I'm gonna miss
What I feel, I guess I realised too late
But what now!? I think it was just fate.

Wanna go back to that night
Because all that just felt right
Just wanna look at you as if it's the last
So I can look smiling, back at the past.

Divergence of paths

You could have ripped out my eyes

You could have plucked at my heart strings

I’d have let you do all these things

Because you were worthy

You were my Queen

You were my ally

We were coalescing

Until our paths diverted

Down different routes

But I just want to say

I still think about you

No hard feelings

And no regrets

I wish you all my love

I wish you all the best

I don’t ever think ill find

Anyone like you

But I keep an open mind

And open eyes as well

Because what the future holds

We can never tell

But I wish you well

And I hope you find

Just what you’re looking for.

Leaving for love

To leave before I hurt again,
is what I must do.
To look into your eyes, the 
pain I guess you don't see.
My body trembling every-
time you are next to me,
I guess you don't feel.
To hear your voice, the love
I feel every time, I guess you don't.
Not wanting to leave,
but must.
Wanting to be your friend,
but not sure how.
Wanting to be your friend, 
but not allowed.
To hurt knowing what I know.
Just remember one thing,
I left because I love you,
not for hating you.

Yeh khaalipan

Jab Meri Bechaini Mit Jayegi
Jab Mere Dilko Sukoon Mil Jayega
Yeh Khaalipan Mit Jayega

Do Pal Ki Chandni Ke Liye
Aj Bhi Zinda Hoon Main
Meri Khaamoshi Ke Ageh Aasmaan Bhi Khatam Ho Jayega

Kehne Ke Liye Toh Roz Marta Hoon Main
Thoda Aur Marne Ke Liye
Yeh Deewana Kal Phir Ayega

Oh what a mistake I have made,
Traveled so far to end up this way.
  Not in a million years would I have guessed,
That this idea was truly not one of my best.
  Never had  known things had changed so much,
We for sure had fallen so far out of touch.
  So many different do's , don't , and bewares,
Actually has left me absolutely  scared.
  What a fool I was to ever believe,
That she would ever be in love with me.
  At my age you would think I know better,
You can trust this will be remembered forever.
  Oh what a terrible mistake I have made,
Wanting all these memories to just fade away.

May the Love of Jesus Touch You

May the Love of Jesus Touch You!

May the love of Jesus bless and touch you!
May his presence be with
 and uplift you!

May the joys of the love make
 you complete!
And touch you, from your
 head to your feet!

May the glory of the lord
 be with and keep you!
His majestic power can really touch you!

May the words that he’s spoken,
touch your spirit!
His mercy and salvation… 
 He freely give it!

May the sweetness of Jesus,
 into your life bring!
His righteousness and beauty!  
Your everything!

May you take some time
 with Jesus in prayer?
How much he loves you! 
 How much he cares!

Final Adieu

Final Adieu

Let another sun set,
Let another flower wilt,
Let another autumn cast its gloom,
Let another tear role,
As ye part, and bid
The final adieu.

Teenage love

Why should we be in love though it’ll end?
And we both know so, so why should we start?
Knowing that our feelings and time in vain spent 
And we gain nothing but the aching of the heart 
It is a matter of time till our parting 
I think we should not better commence 
A journey that has a joyful starting 
But shortly in sadness and tears ends  
Stop using your heart and use your mind
For the heart sometimes be so reckless 
Think of our alleged love and you shall find 
That our exertions will be worthless 

Teenage love shall give us nothing but pain
And we may love each other, but in vain

Chesapeake Bay

Crystal clear blue waves kiss
the sands of Chesapeake Bay. 
We walk in gentle silence 
lost in the magic of yesterday.			
I must leave you soon, my love,
circumstance won’t let me stay,
the lonesome lullaby of the loon
echoes our dismay.
One lingering kiss, one final glance,
no words can ever say
for you have yours, I have mine, 
no promises  past  today.
Where the waters greets the sky,
my heart yearns to run away,
in my dreams I'll be here with you,
sharing our love on Chesapeake Bay.

Refusing To Listen

Everyone telling me where to go:
Turn left,
Turn right.
I don't even know who to listen to anymore;
I don't even know who I am anymore.
God, please speak to me
And tell me where to go
And show me what to do
Because Your voice is drowning out in the madness
Or maybe I am just refusing to listen.

Dialogue of Souls

Best of friends, for countless years,
we had the best of times.
Now as my eyes are filled with tears,
your soul to Heaven climbs.
The path we take, not always clear,
I feel so lost without you here.
Your last words, prophetic now,
“I’ll be home soon”- you knew somehow.
You left me here, I’m so alone,
but I dreamed Heaven had a phone.
We talked all night, you fell asleep,
I held the line to hear you breathe…

Last Kiss

Open your eyes to the ever turning skies 
I want to here with me through the night 
My heart yearns into your soul 
Burning as if newly lit coal 
I bravely submerg the embers 
That the time I have can be spent with you 
And I remember each kiss every moment 
I was caught in your love that for just this day I remember 
So what happened was a chance for your love 
A time that I kept in a locket tied with a kiss 
 I wanted you to feel, to love, to slumber 
And to awake in my arms with that times kept bliss 
I lay silient in an umber

First and Last Kiss

Atop the road by the sea
Thou confessed thy affection for me
By a kiss as thy language of love
Ebbed from the copious desire thou have

A kiss from thee, my first love,
Something at last I have
My first love; my first kiss
I didn’t expect I’ll miss

‘Twas a kiss of farewell
For my love will depart and travel
Didn’t know when we’ll meet again
But I’m hoping it’ll happen

Though it’s heartbreaking,
I have to accept the pain I’m feeling.
The first and last kiss we had
Is the first and last kiss we’ll have?

They say you'll forget the old song,
That musical pledge to belong. 
But traces remain,
Its stunning refrain
Now weighs on the one left alone.

The vibrancy sparkling her eyes
Had vanished the day of goodbye.
The numbness of shock,
A mirror to mock,
Reflecting no image of why.

Months later, you cried in your sleep,
As time grants a final release.
To pause and recall
The bloom of it all,
Two flowers long fallen to seed.
