I Don'T Quite Get It

Poem By Rudy Hossam

It'd been a while,
Since we last talked.
So long they seemed,
Though few they were.

I still remember his last words,
Those which promised to meet.
Weirdly we met,
But for the last time,
It was that night.

He was there sitting,
Right next to me.
He turned his face,
Avoiding my eyes,
As if scared they would betray him.

We sat that night together,
With on word said.
I left after the long silence,
With no promise to meet again.

I gave a word to myself,
That no matter what that meant,
I won't cry not one little bit.
The next day I read the message,
I feared he would send,
'It's Not About You, Just I'm Not Ready Yet...'

For the first time,
I broke the word I took with myself,
But really I'd no choice.

I forced my tears back in,
But all in vain they only kept running down,
Like a lunatic I cried.
I don't really know why,
It's not like I didn't expect it someday.

-I'd wait for you...
-I don't want to stop you from living...
Did he forget?
I said before 'If I'm not with you then I'm not living'
Maybe it's not about not being ready,
Maybe he just doesn't want me around anymore,
I don't quite get it...

Never Give Up

Sometimes life is against you
You see it turning......
From dark to darker
Wishing it's just a nightmare

The Difference

In the middle of the night
My cell phone rang
My friend annoyingly woke me up
To tell me watch the news

A Friend

Why do I need a friend?
She does me no good.
When I’m sad,
She tries to make me glad,

In Your Eyes

In your eyes I saw everything new
And in your eyes I saw everything which grew
And in somehow I knew
I was meant to be with you

Love From First Sight

I never believed in love from first sight
It’s said to be but it’s never right
People talked about it all night
As if it’s clearer than pure light.

I Just Know One Thing

I don’t know when this life started
I don’t know when it’ll end
I don’t know how things began
I don’t know how things were
