Behrouz

Your name means fortunate
Yet you live an unfortunate life
Behrouz, go to sleep
Quit wasting your breath

You talk as if you are going somewhere
You never move.
I am tired Behrouz.
I am not in the mood.

Love Is Like

Love is like a Persian miniature
Frozen pose... she looks down to him
from her castle window
He looks up to her on his white horse...
her brave soldier - her hero
Paint a pretty picture
Let our love look like this forever....

I sleep to dream of love like this...

Our love is like a pomegrante
Bitter, sweet, and sour in one taste
It takes forever to peel apart
It takes forever to prepare
Sometimes I think my eyes are bigger than my stomach
I think I can eat it all...
but I am already full and tired half way there.

I waited so long, I imagined the taste
Finally my hard work has paid off
You are set there before me, perfectly prepared
My mouth watered waiting...

You took too long.
I must go now....
I apologize if you rot.
