Ala' Elouri (December 30,1996 / San Clemente, California)
It seems like you're far
Even though its been day or Few
We haven't talked.
It seems like you're untouchable,
Like the diamonds in the sky
I sit and wonder why
I don't ask for much
You know I am a humble soul,
I just ask for some attention
I just ask for your existence
I don't know how to explain
I can't plead you for love,
Or beg you to keep in touch
You got to do it your own
You're a red rose
You can hurt people sometimes when they hold you,
And You can also nourish people when they look at you.
You have something inordinary about you
Maybe thats the reason I'm deeply attached to you.
Your lips are soft as silk,
And your touch gives me the chills.
I don't know there is something in you thats different than all I have seen
Is it the smile?
Is it the walk?
Is it your talk?
Is it your heart?
Is it your eagerness?
Or is it that you are the only one who has conquered my heart.
Stole my heart from out of the blues.
Never asked for permission.
You just stole it and I was silent.
For the second time, I had fell in love
You were always there
But never saw you between six million,
Never did I imagine
I would write a poem about You from the deepest part in my heart.
Never did I imagine,
I would love a person and hold on to them,
Just for our bright future.
