The Way

The Way
by Farah Afshari

Why should I stay?

why should I talk repeat?

I have crossed this way

I have smelt the love

and want nothing more...


I have touched the mirage

pictures of fascinations in a land

lost in dreams of water and growing green

and have come back with dry sand pouring

from between my fingers

an empty heart

and a desire to close my eyes and walk endless

why should I stay?


and I shall take nothing

but all the little things that slept with my soul

for so long

so so long

The way was long and dark

I was a passenger

tired and sleepy

friendship was that little hut

within which the light

gave me the strength

to carry on

now I am awake

with no light insight

why? why should I stay?

The way is long

and darkness entwined with my eyes

why? why should I stay?

My dear Mojan thank you for your kind comments now and before.


Thank you!

My friend,
Thank you for witting back again. You are the reason I frequently check this website. Your poetry is the true semblance of feeling; it takes one away to a land of dreams, giving a new sense of life before the return back to reality.
Please continue to share your thoughts, as I look forward reading them. Yours truly.

It means I have not achieved what I was looking for but I have found out what it should be.


Smell Love?

Sorry Farah, what do you mean by "I have smelt love"?

Thank you!
