Amir Foroughi

Rookie (Tabriz)


Are you still there in the shadows
Beyond edge of heaven
Waiting for the bells
Sigh of god
Are you still there?
I can’t even see you
Hallucination is my grace
See you ever smiling
Is my eternal face
Are you still there?
Sorrow shall not serenade
Harbinger of happy days
Are you still there?
My fallen angel
You not say farewell
Not rise out of dark hell
Waiting for the starlit
Are you still there?
Wondering ever made scars
Will evaporate from my face
Cleansing or baptizing the bloody pagan trace
Are you still there?
Concealed heart is my temple
Doom idols shall praise you not you
Are you still there?
I see you the last dream
Fog of black arcane sages
One last kiss
Are you still there?
Are you still there?

    Hope should not have more questions, afraid it turn doubt...Not wrong to have hope and but high hopes make sure dont make you down if you cant tie with your reality ropes..Amir, Dont be afraid of the future dont you ever...let your hope be part of you my friend, let it be...Because when you used to live in the dark and no hope inside, will going nowhere, static and sad never ending...time to move on, time to get all freedom..dream well Amir, dont ignore it and let it have some hope may you will find a way to back home :)
    ..You really talented, but now you stop writing...WHY? keep new piece coming :) Go on for new emotion, bright for sure..Have a great future my friend Amir_Unwritten Soul (Report) Reply
