Amorous Kiss
Away from the one I know
Far away but close with memories
This is where we said goodbye
This is where we first laughed
This is where I took off my shoes
It was a funny story, that day
A smile escaped my face
I saw where you first kissed me
That time you actually said
“I wanna kiss you”
I answered most delightfully
“kiss me”
We closed our eyes, leaned in
Everything stopped
It was a huge pause
We were transported
From the fountains around me
To the fireworks that saved me
It never stopped, I saw the colours
You led me to the stars I could not hold
I felt all the fireflies kissing me gently
Under the moon, under the starry night
It was over; I had to open my eyes
We pulled away heavily
Bit my lower lip and looked down
Your eyes sparkled to our kiss
Thank you for our kiss
Thank you for the memory of that kiss
That time I said “kiss me”

Sand's Hook
At night in the desert
You will see the deception
See the eyes that wrote
All the scary conceptions
At day in the desert
You will find an intellect
You might think it's a defect
But it’s something to reflect
You see us and wonder
If our pain is apparent
We’ll tell you stories
How dunes carried our glories
Made us believe
Forget and promise
If you ask us
We will tell you
Our fights and wars
Our laughs and promises
We will also tell you
What we are thankful for
The night’s secrets
The day’s clarity
The mind’s forgetfulness
Thank God we forget
We forgot how our people
Our land
Our deserts
Tricked us into falling
Into loving it
Ask us what we love the most
The answer’s always one

Passage
I went to a place
Where she stands
Her place is a trap they say
She does not please the Lord
The kings adore her
The town despises her
Only the ones driven by lust
Go to her and ask for love
She might refuse
Or break your heart
I knocked on her door
She let me in
A dove flew in with me
She was waiting for light
She was weak and fragile
I found her broken
If I had known
How to mend a Heart
I saw her light
I saw her beauty
She took my breath
As I sighed by her allure
She does not know love
She knows how to win
Love is a match
She has to surpass
She broke me down
Only knows to conquer
The kings tormented her
Her fear is her shelter
I stayed to touch her heart
To mend what was broken
To prove what love is
She was defeated
Showed me her bruises
Gave me all she is
I was her lift

Laurel
You're an interesting one
A quiet one
Broken but smiling
Your mystery's been my muse
Always wanted to know more
You never gave me enough
Always touched my core
Took me places I know
Places I've been before
They were dim before you
You're waiting for your match
She's someone mesmerising
She'll get me jealous
But I know
You'll always be far away
Never fall for your muse
I often break these rules
You've seen my love
Seen my heart
Seen my secrets
Emotional
Romantic
Dreamy
Poetic
Distracted
Easily impressed
Hush.. keep it
That was the time
You told me you knew
But I trusted you
So I let it with you
You will never show me
I feel different with you
I never thought
I will meet someone
More mysterious than I
He swept me off my feet
In my own game
You beat me at my own game

Zeal
They see it every day
It's always around them
They see it all the time
They don't see it at all
They're blind to what is real
They took it for granted
So they don't feel it
Passion: gone
Love: gone
Romance: gone
Raw: gone
All their thoughts
All they witness
What they don't have
There's so much to hold
They can't hold it
They need to sing
To see they sing
Sing with the cold
In the magical night
Sing the song of love
And shed the tears
Tears of love
That's when it's felt
Real passion is touched
True love Love is held
Sweet Romance is owned
And raw is embraced
The song is not a trance
Nor is it a wake-up call
Don't sing because you have to
Sing because you want to
And when you sing
That cold cold winter
Will be nothing
Give off the vibe
Make them feel
Bring them to tears
The tears are the feels

Miss Dreamy
Her grin was the warmest
Her laugh was the most beautiful
Her smile was the sexiest
Her eyes always gleamed
Her face was always glowing
Her cheeks were always red
Her lips were always moist
How was I to know she was falling down
How was I to know she was losing
She hid it so well
With her smile and her eyes
How was I to know
Do I blame myself
Or do I blame her enchanting beauty
A million miles away
She left with all her grace
Who's to blame?
She knew my state
I was running around
Looking for her face
I could see her
But she would always fade
I hoped she would notice me
Before she left
She hugged me tight
Said her last goodbyes
Promised..
Promised she will be back
She didn't know she would be
So far away
Far away from reality
So far away from home
Her smile is still the sexiest
Her cheeks still glow
Her radiance will never leave
She left with so much grace
She knew I would miss
She knew I would collide
She knew my smile would never leave
She knew it is the brightest

Literature
Elusive Love
Love you have never reached
Love you can feel and only great ones can see
Love you can reach but are blind to see
As long as you guide the way you feel
I have seen you force the love in you
Love does not work in force
Love does not function that way
Love is beyond your reach
When you have let go of all the ways
The ways that you think you feel
And feel what you do not know you feel
Love works with the heart not the brain
As long as you are still in your own mind
You will never feel the love I see
Love that is stronger than you and me
You claim you are a part of it
But you are so in your head that you think
Only you have seen it
It is so far away from you
You have got a long way to see the love
The love you think you feel

Arabian Deserts
A night so dark
I called it kohl
My land is known for
starry black nights
and solitaire games
Of winds and sand
Orange is the dust
And brown is the land
With the sun up above
Burning yellow
Our night is the magic
What shows up at night
Only Arabs know a
Secret can't be told
At night the moon
And the stars they
All stare down at
Arabs in the breeze
Of the night and the
Tricks of the desert
No man can combat
The desert's scheme
In the dark night
No Arab can resist
To defy its land
Moon as our witness
Nights are secrets
No where but in the
Conniving Arab's land

Still OK
I've seen the sun, the flowers and rain
Some things I've seen have made me in vain
I got stuck in a loop that is neutral
I left myself behind and put all in front
The day has not come where I am at front
I keep myself at back hoping I'd find comfort
Keep it all behind and know there's no truce
I live for survival, I live for others around
Never knew the feel of taking care of only me
Walked through the quicksand
To get to the other side
Once I got there I lost
Lost all I need, lost all I am
Walked through the other side
Just to see a smile on another's face
I have never held for me
Never grew for me
My only peace in my day
Is when I know all is ok
I have let it all get washed away
I smiled for me
Shut my eyes for myself
Remembered the days I saw a smile for me
When I had a favourite and held for me
I shut my eyes
I remember the time
I have laughed for myself
Laughed from another
The only one who ever made me laugh
Now I just let the love wash it all away

Literature
Torturous Place
She had a smile on her face
They said she was planning a plot
She had tears in her eyes
They said why is she always sad
She laughed her way out
That's something really bad
She conversed with who's around
They said she's luring them in
Let's warn them of her sin
She finally found a man
Magic! A witch is at his hand
They pulled him away
She pulled but could not withstand
She sat alone and grey was her aura
She's so depressing to be around
She walked under the sun and smiled
What a creep! How could she smile
She hid her face under her hair
She's always trying to hide
She had to leave that torturous place
We once had a witch she never showed her face

Equilibrium
What's sad is my family and I
Are not in agreement
Within us, a strife
They won't be happy unless
I'm somebody's wife
In my family, I don't belong
We always fight for no reason
Never got along
I'd do anything to please them
I'm their ugly duckling
I'll never be their gem
I loved once, loved and fell
Fell so hard that when he was gone
I hit bottom but still under his spell
I loved only once
Had fun a million
But love, there was only one
With his love I won
Until he was forever gone
For my mum, I'd do anything
But love I can't do
I don't mean to be blue
But he was my king
In my heart he'll never be replaced
Alas, it's my life
I'll do anything
To settle the strife
Just to see a smile
On her face
When I wear my lace
I'll be in control
Just will never be whole
My real man, he was gone
Gone years ago
My heart is one thing
And my family's another

Forever
On the night of a memory
I stood on the street
Looked at the sky
And remembered my lines
That night was so special
It was invincible to me
Everything I had at that moment
Was nothing to me
I remember I was there
And he was right next to me
We sat on the corner
Laughing uncontrollably
We promised we'd love forever
We were too young
We never knew
When was forever
Looking back at that memory
Standing where we sat
As my eyes tear up
I feel my heartbeat
Forever it will be
Don't worry my love
I'll never fall in love
As long as I live
You'll be the only one
I loved
All that's left of you
Are memories
It's not enough
But it's all I can hold
It's all I can see
You'll be forever
A part of me

Marionette
Be a girl
Be a woman
Do what you're asked to
You have no right
No right for saying no
Listen to me I am your man
The only thing you can do
Is listen to me as I rule
You are a very lucky one
I am a reasonable man
I will let you be everything
The music is talking to you
Don't speed up just listen
Imagine yourself in my arms
Listen to me I am your man
There's nothing you can do
My laughter scares little you
Don't be scared little one
I got what it takes so you
So you can be my pretty one
Something you should know
I despise tears when I'm there
You have no right to feel
No right to feel sadness
Just stay my hottie
You don't know what you're missing
I am a reasonable man
Don't you dare make a scene
Listen to me
Imagine yourself in my arms
Live it up
You're mine and there's nothing
You can do about it
I am your man
You listen only to me and do
Only what I say
I like that smile of yours
I want to see more of it
There's nothing you can do
I am the one in control
I have been handed your remote

My Warning
There was a time
I wished I was known
Wished I was home
Wished not to be alone
Always cared for others
Never cared for my own
Thought I could handle it
I lied to myself
Lied and said
I will be fine
I don't matter
Never mattered
I am a human being
Something I forgotten
To some I am a con
A liar with bad intentions
A thief to steal them
That cover keeps me safe
Safe from all the pain
Just cover it up
No one will know
I was being followed
Everyday each night
Felt all the heat
From the dog I had
It was black
It was big
My dog
The depression
I have lied to myself
Acted like I don't care
Like I could be happy
I was only scared
Scared of myself
The things I could do
I hurt a million
I was proud
Proud I didn't care
Walls as high as one can see
Bringing them down
Turning that frown
I care about myself
I matter and changed
Change is my cure
I am a human being
I matter
I am not known
Nor am I home
But for once
My mirror smiled

Upright Criminal
Blue-grey rain drizzles
From a leaky sky,
Blends with oil rainbows
That almost beautify
The drug-sick alleys,
And pawnshop avenues,
The page-splatter streets
Of crime wave news.
In hungry winter, I
Commit a petty crime,
To get myself locked up;
I rot my too-much time
Just to find the space
For a warm steel bed;
And I get white crackers
When I ask for bread.
Cops patrol poverty,
Yet ignore nine-one-ones,
Packing corrupt cell blocks
With hollowed out sons
Of hallowed half men;
The mayor pockets wealth,
Growing fat and rich
On the poor’s poor health.
One day a runaway
Sick of daddy’s dark pride,
Living as a throw-away,
Estranged and denied,
Met me eye to eye
To ask me for change;
And the only thought
I had is of how strange
That I too am vagrant;
But this girl seemed so sad,
I pulled out my pockets
And gave her all I had;
And though this truth
May seem quite minimal,
There is such a thing
As an upright criminal.

The Snake and the Rose
Scars left unmended yearn for your touch
Deluded from years of neglection
My comatose heart in your love’s poem
Soft memories of what used to be
Your dreams eluded me
In dying ember nights
Why must the morn come in sweet
These scars unmended
Your scent elusive
Yearning for your touch
A storm is coming a gale of degs
A rift of remembrance in shallow
Together what love was we follow
Displace from the entwining changes
My world is lost a life unwritten
You flee when my heart begins to love
These scars unmended
Your scent elusive
Yearning for your touch
Have I given you a love unbound
A taste of languid embrace
Love’s blind hope hardening in stone
Winter without the cold
Sunshine rises hope
Always out of reach

Winters Dying Eve
In Locke’s dream a world is full of dreamy desires
Stars give us a weaving road to guide us so far from essences old
Heart’s cold, hardening forgiving fate blinding us so bad
These scares are unforgiving for a lifetime’s living
My dreams are mornings lying, a pretending!
A life so unforgiving, a place I have held in black and white
The mist of lying or a presentence of living
A rent a living to adore
I give my all in a dying allure
A love in twisted lore
You sleep in centuries old storm
You give a damn in a whisper so old
Marigold so bold
To dream of evermore
Atone riveting
Lilac dancing alone
Of violent wisdom
A stormy reality
An irrelevant tragedy
Scars fortunate
To a fate unforgiving
Twisted truths
Undying Until We are aging
Hardening until we are unknown
To bind tomorrow with regrets
We flee for we are alone
With hope, uncaring for our plight
You hold on to what I have given up
A crimson rose already dying
We live as one, yet we are banned for caring
I flee, for I

HAPPY NEW YEAR ALL!!!

New Year, new possibilities 

I can’t believe I finally made it! Twelve months without a smart phone. #nophonechallenge SUCCESSFUL!!  

I’ve actually done it for a whole year!

Ok, so I was thinking how should I start this entry? What exactly should I talk about? From which aspect should I mention this?

 I decided to just write what comes to mind. Because I believe that writing from the heart is best. Living without a smartphone has its ups and downs. I might say that I’m focused. Everytime I see people attached to their chargers next to the wall, I think this might have been me. But it’s not. At the same time, I’m not sure if they feel the need to be stuck to their smartphones the whole day. But at the same time I know people who always say “you know I never use my smartphone.” And I noticed that they tell me that only after I tell them about this whole experiment that I turned into my capstone thesis project, which has been going really well, so I’m glad.

There are so many things I want to talk to you guys about since this will probably be my last entry. I had a reason to type about my life. And there was a theme now there isn’t a reason to go on. So this is the last of my life ^_^ I’ll try my best not to make it long and boring.

When I first started this challenge it was because I was in such a bad place in my life that I needed a drastic change to prove to myself that I can do something I set my mind to. And now my graduation project is about this very challenge.

I cannot say that I lived without social media because I feel like I was forced to turn to skype and Facebook messages to reach people. I had to open Instagram more than once for projects in school and checking ads in my internship. I still checked Pinterest every now and then. So I cannot say that I had a social media cleanse oh and of course Deviantart. There were times where I missed my smartphone and I couldn’t wait til this challenge is over and others I felt blessed that I don’t have my smartphone. The fact that I did not know any celebrity trivia was freeing to me. I hated scrolling through twitter or Instagram and knowing something about some celebrity that would never bring value to my life. I could dedicate more time in things I want to learn in life and things I want to improve in my skills and so on. I had a problem with not being confident enough and I realised that problem throughout the challenge and now I could definitely say that I have gained confidence in the sense of I don’t need to hide anything from anyone and that I don’t feel embarrassed in just being myself and doing this challenge. I could say that I have had more genuine talks with so many people, because there wasn’t anything blocking the conversation which would be as simple as looking down at your phone for no reason whatsoever. I have also noticed a better sleeping pattern because there isn’t a tiny screen to stare at for 2 hours before I actually sleep. I’d definitely say that I have replaced my smartphone for my laptop, my notebook, my sketchbook and BOOKS!!

I get bored SO FAST!! I always thought having a smartphone would get rid of my boredom somehow but it never did. Without it, whenever I did get bored I would do something productive. For example I'd be working on a project then get bored so I work on another project then work on one of my paintings and so on. I can tell you that I got SO MUCH MORE productive!!

Living in our fast world in a rather slow pace compared to smartphone users has been very interesting to me. And I sure am not as depressed as I was in December of 2015. I think I have come a long way and I believe that people should realise that sometimes in life you just have to put your phone away.

I have become more aware and more focused in the now and the moment I’m living. It is an amazing feeling that I haven’t felt before. I’m sure people don’t need to do what I did to achieve awareness but putting down the phone helps in seeing the world around you; and being in the moment, rather than in your head and in your thoughts.

Also, I have realised the people who truly matter stick around and they actually look for you. This challenge has helped me filter so many people in my life and I'm glad that the people around me now are the ones who matter. :aww:

I think that should be all because that's too much to read and I do not want to bore you people. If any of you are interested in the research I have conducted regarding this topic for my capstone thesis project then just ask :D I'll be more than happy to share. 

Finally, thank you for reading all I wrote and most importantly thank you for those who supported me, kept reading my journals and were always interested in reading the next. Thank you so so much! You're a major reason I actually went on with this and did not give in to the temptation haha. Thank you!

It has been an amazing year with so many bumps but we stand strong jumping to the next level!
2017!! We can't wait to achieve goals with you!

Good luck and live happy. Use smartphones responsibly and SMILE!!

Away from the one I know
Far away but close with memories

This is where we said goodbye
This is where we first laughed
This is where I took off my shoes
It was a funny story, that day

A smile escaped my face
I saw where you first kissed me
That time you actually said
“I wanna kiss you”
I answered most delightfully
“kiss me”
We closed our eyes, leaned in

Everything stopped
It was a huge pause
We were transported
From the fountains around me
To the fireworks that saved me
It never stopped, I saw the colours
You led me to the stars I could not hold
I felt all the fireflies kissing me gently
Under the moon, under the starry night

It was over; I had to open my eyes
We pulled away heavily
Bit my lower lip and looked down
Your eyes sparkled to our kiss

Thank you for our kiss
Thank you for the memory of that kiss
That time I said “kiss me”
Amorous Kiss

At night in the desert
You will see the deception
See the eyes that wrote
All the scary conceptions

At day in the desert
You will find an intellect
You might think it's a defect
But it’s something to reflect

You see us and wonder
If our pain is apparent
We’ll tell you stories
How dunes carried our glories
Made us believe
Forget and promise

If you ask us
We will tell you
Our fights and wars
Our laughs and promises

We will also tell you
What we are thankful for
The night’s secrets
The day’s clarity
The mind’s forgetfulness

Thank God we forget

We forgot how our people
Our land
Our deserts
Tricked us into falling
Into loving it

Ask us what we love the most
The answer’s always one

I went to a place
Where she stands

Her place is a trap they say
She does not please the Lord
The kings adore her
The town despises her

Only the ones driven by lust
Go to her and ask for love
She might refuse
Or break your heart

I knocked on her door
She let me in
A dove flew in with me
She was waiting for light

She was weak and fragile
I found her broken

If I had known
How to mend a Heart

I saw her light
I saw her beauty

She took my breath
As I sighed by her allure
She does not know love
She knows how to win
Love is a match
She has to surpass

She broke me down
Only knows to conquer

The kings tormented her
Her fear is her shelter

I stayed to touch her heart
To mend what was broken
To prove what love is

She was defeated
Showed me her bruises
Gave me all she is

I was her lift

This poem is about what one would see and help in their journey.
