Call me once

Call me once
And I will leave the skies for you
What are heavens without your love
Like barren lands without happiness
God will God
But mortal love remains for eternity

Angels can grow wings
And fly to worlds
But don’t have the heart
To land on the feet of love
Where heaven begins

Call me once
And I will fall from the heavens
For only you
The one
Who loved me once

The Innocent Past

A new land
A new language
Unknown tongues and rules

Don’t hit girls
Or go to detention
Bring your own lunch
With orange or apple juice

“Fuck you”
Is how you say ‘Hello’
Man United is the best team in the world
And WWF real men watch

Winters were the coldest ever felt
Always wore two pairs of pants
And two pairs of socks

The strangest thing I remember
Called to a room for a checkup
All done she replied
But an odd request
“Can I see what is underneath?”
Yes I said as an unknown child
She looked and touched
But just then the door opened
“Sorry Miss” he replied
Waiting next in line
The pants went quickly up
And I was done

What was it?
I still don’t know
Perhaps curiosity
Of foreign skin

The seven year old in me
Still remembers
The innocent days of past

And I have failed you

Why I drink the purest waters
And you don’t
Why I sleep on the most comfortable beds
And you cannot
Why I have so much food
That it goes to waste
And you go starving each night
Waiting to find your next meal
Why my heart is only open to you
For each Ramadan and closed after Eid
Why I deny your existence
When I sleep behind walls
And you under the stars
Because I have failed you
And I have failed you
For that
I am sorry
