When Writing...

Poem By Safiyyah Manjra

When I write poetry I think I become a different person.
I don't know the exact reason.

There are moments in time where my heart speaks aloud.
Most of my poetry is written beneath the night cloud.

The day never seems to bring justice.
Always full of noise and traps me in its harness.

I say things through poetry that I am unable to say with my usual words.
I somehow connect my one voice through both worlds.

Even the most painful poems I have written with a smile.
I guess poetry brings that joy that I've been holding for a while.

I like the quiet notion.
That brings with every word station.

Everything just fits.
Perfectly - each word sits.

Sometimes a little chaos is fun.
Enough to make your thoughts run.

That's why I like poetry.
It is always written ever so elegantly.

Fail With Repeat.

The pain of the heart.
After trying something which once kept you together.
Is now tearing you apart.

Feed Together

I always have this urge to feed someone,
Be someone they can rely on,
Take care of them and feel as one.

Before Sleep.

Those warm showers at night,
Which comfort us before sleep.

The kiss,

Kiss Me

Kiss me,
Beneath the stars in the cold night,
That I may stand strong and not fright.
Brush your fingers through my hair,

Never Ending Love.

I want you to really say those words this time,
The ones which make my mind intertwine.

It has been too long with this tension.

No Wrong Or Right

That is why it is good to like someone,
Who resembles no one.

Then you like the person for their true character,
