Trouble

Make the love between us stay.
Don’t let it leave, please.

Love is precious.
Love is huge.
Love is holy.
Beauty.

Love is our reason for being, together.
Don’t let it fly from us.
When you are angry with me,
The world is colorless, so dark,
Pieces of me, broken inside.
My tears fall. I misplace my joys,
Life too heavy to carry alone.

Then love gives me power again,
Courage to speak with you,
To take your hand, whisper
my feelings, share my hope,
my wishes, my love.

So, make the love stay
Don’t let it to leave us.

  1. A beautiful, heartfelt poem, Farida. Thank you for this. I especially carry with me these lines, for I have felt this many times:

    “When you are angry with me,
    The world is colorless, so dark,
    Pieces of me, broken inside.”

    Thank you for sharing some of your love with us.

  6. I really enjoyed this poem, Farida! You paint a beautiful picture of the power of love, and the power of its absence as well — “I misplace my joys, Life too heavy to carry alone.” was an especially moving way to express this. Thank you for sharing this with us all.
