Poem - #12 | Feelings

A painting of a girl showing her feelings.

Feelings



I didn't want to do it
Or maybe I did,
It all started when I said that your post was lit,
And you commented that you were deeply grieved.

You said you were left to die
Under the unforgiving sky,
With no one to see you cry
And if let alone you would try -----
To leave this world and fly.

To fly far, far away from the wide-wide sky
But it was just another big lie.
I believed in you, tried to console you,
I said, "All will be well, a good life awaits you."

But you acted well and kept on bluffing
Saying the same four lines to Joe, Bill, John and Irving
That you were left to die
Under the unforgiving sky,
With no one to see you cry
And if you could you would try -----
To leave this world and fly.

But playing us was your aim,
Nothing more, nothing less, and you did nicely frame ------'
That you suffered, while others betrayed:
But never did you think what had you portrayed
When with the five of us you played.

And I didn't want to do it
But you forced me into it,
All I ever asked for was commitment
But you tossed my words out like an old sacrament
Let to the elements of nature to suffer and wither.

But I promise it won't happen again,
The four others may fall again into your dirty drain
But not me,
Not again.

And don't you dare harm Daisy
For what she said and showed was in no way false
Never had I thought of you being so phony,
If she had never showed me.
But getting too phony shows that you are a liar and it is you who is at loss.
Now remember that when you text me next and your limit
you cross,
So if I don't reply, please don't fuss.

I've believed enough in your truthful lies
And if it's your heart is where your love lies,
But there ain't no pickup line which will be fine
Even if you keep tryin'
Your whole life.

Alireza Taheri Araghi | The Immortals of Tehran

BLURB: As a child living in his family's apple orchard, Ahmad Torkash-Vand treasures his great-great-great-great grandfather's every mesmerizing word. On the day of his father's death, Ahmad listens closely as the seemingly immortal elder tells him the tale of a centuries-old family curse . . . and the boy's own fated role in the story. Ahmad grows up to suspect that something must be interfering with his family, as he struggles to hold them together through decades of famine, loss, and political turmoil in Iran. As the world transforms around him, each turn of Ahmad's life is a surprise: from street brawler, to father of two unusually gifted daughters; from radical poet, to politician with a target on his back. These lives, and the many unforgettable stories alongside his, converge and catch fire at the center of the Revolution. Exploring the brutality of history while conjuring the astonishment of magical realism, The Immortals of Tehran is a novel about the incan

Poem - #13 | Utopian Dystopia | On Poverty and Racism

On Poverty and Racism They say it ain't good When you show your cunning self But when you have to beg for food Being honest is of little help. Sit in the heat, sit in the rain; Is it the best way, you use your brain. But you know what? The rich don't care, About the miseries the poor share. Oh! Please don't spit there Thats where I sleep dear: And don't you piss there My food is in there! Yeah you heard it right But you still will fight, With the people and the government, Everytime they have us money, lent. For the rich get richer,  And the poor - poorer: Very few things in this world Are more truer, Than this clich├ęd phrase. You see, we live in such a country When dogs are prayed but men slayed, On the basis of their so-called caste How long do you think can such a rule last? And the black men, kicked out and murdered Just because God had them coloured. And yet they say we live in an uto
