New Year’s Resolutions

Three years ago I wrote a list of 25 new year’s resolution. Most of them were juvenile as I was younger and less experienced than today. I don’t usually write resolutions and keep them. Though maybe, this year I should, hang them somewhere where I can see them every single day, and try to keep […]

When you cling to the past

It is indeed advisable to get to the core of things, have a small journey to the past and understand the reasons. This journey is designed to make us read the sensible letters behind our daily decisions, and our new mistakes. The past designs us and our lives, it leaves us with marks and scars to […]

My Road to Honesty

Yes, sometimes I lie. Sometimes I hide my feelings ans thoughts. Sometimes I have to make a living out of lying and pretending I’m someone else. We’re all humans after all, we’ve been raised on lies and we’ve been lying ever since we started communicating. Over the last few years, I decided to treasure honesty […]

When I was a pretty girl

I was aware of my own deep desires. I knew what kind happiness I wanted. When I was a pretty girl, I was young and nice. Sweet. I never wanted to hurt myself. I was pretty back then. I was clean and my heart was clear. No history, no dark, filthy, and hideous secrets to […]

A struggling editor looking for writers

I’ve been in contact with  Mahmoud Mansi for few years now.  Mr. Mansi is a writer, a poet, an artist, a founder, and a very handsome Egyptian man. He’s the kind of man that would take chances on things that don’t even make sense, yet they make a change and a difference in society. For so […]

67 years of what?

For them, it’s 67 years of glory. 67 years of existence. 67 years of belonging. For us, it’s 67 years of remembrance. 67 years of pain. 67 years of lost identity. But seriously, what is those 67 years represent? what’s the actual outcome? what actually happened during these years? or before these years? or even, […]

March – the beginning of Spring.

I live in the middle east and the real spring begins in March. Indeed there will be some cold days in this month, but the warmth begins. And it’s beautiful. The day is getting longer and I’m no longer afraid of the dark. It’s lovely. The rain can be light, and the sun can be […]

All is well

I think, imagine, dream, remember, and feel… all, on my skin. It all smells so filthy, yet it all should small lavender. It smells the same, all of it… all of you. And I think about it all… but again, what’s the point? Down in the gutter, it will all be… and in time, maybe after […]

Time to stop , in the middle.

A young girl foolish naive. Living in a world of deceit. Looking for escapades. Reckless, not adventurous. Rebellious by heart, not by mind. Hungry for passion… It’s time to stop! But no… one last time. Or more last times. More… last times. Stop. This satanic notorious habit. Take a stand. act. Save yourself, young and foolish […]

Last day of the year

It’s suddenly the end the last day of the fourteenth year of this new millennium. The beginning of the millennium was only yesterday and still these fourteen years have passed quickly. I was a child back then and now a woman I am. Was innocent and now experienced with dark magic. A sinner I become […]

It’s Christmas today – a poem

I wrote this poem two years ago on Christmas day (on my previous blog). I was going through tough times back then and I was feeling different than today/this year. I sent this poem to some of my friends and they thought it is sad and they didn’t like it. Of course they didn’t. One […]
