It’s been a while…


A haunting melody
Like a siren’s song
Tempts me to dive
Into sensual waters

Serendipitous eyes whisper:
Wordless promises
Delicate intentions
Unfulfilled longings

Yet I see nothing
But a fading sunset

Bittersweet predawn

When the dawn
Begins to play
The first chords
Of an acoustic prelude
And a nocturnal veil
Of the smiling stars
Slowly uncovers you
I hope that
The gentle messenger
Unveils your day
With my prayers
Silently lingering
In its ancient
Rays of hope

I will undress
My heart and soul
The tragically beautiful
Night canvas

Expose my secrets
Strip off my metaphors
Bare my sorrow
Reveal my desire

I promise
To pull you in
With the first line
And keep your attention
Until there is
Nothing left
But purple utopia

Will you
Cover me
With the dust
Of the stars
You stole
From my night sky

Will you?

Dear muse

Come to me
Like a raging fire
Take me back
To the place
Where there is no yesterday
Or tomorrow
Just an infinite bliss

Tangled sheets
Non-stop laughter
Eyes closed, lips seeing
Dripping with new verses
Poetry at its finest

Dear muse

The fiery breaths
Between your kisses
Inspire me endlessly
So, come to me
Let’s drift back
Into poetic madness

Hey, remember me? Just a few random and unedited musings for my first post of the year. It’s GREAT to be back! I’ve truly missed the WP community – a place filled with talented and inspiring writers of all kind.

2015: new chances, new disappointments, new achievements, new experiences, new memories – something new to write about. I wish you all an unforgettable and inspiring 2015. Chase your dreams and make them your reality.

And now I’m off to read some of your latest posts. It’s been way too long!! Please bear with me, it may take a few days to complete the task.

  1. Hi! Great to see you back! Like you I found it hard to keep up with WP during 2014 – particularly with everyone’s wonderful work – but I’m going to try to find more time in 2015. Hope the new year is wonderful for you!! 🙂 Oh, and lovely, lovely poetry as ever – I’ve missed reading your beautiful work! 🙂


    1. Thank you, Helen. I’ve surely missed reading your poems and posts. I’m also going to try to find more time in 2015 – may not post as regularly but will be around more.


    1. Thank you so very much for the comment. It feels so wonderful to be back. I’ve definitely missed reading your work. Glad to know you enjoyed Starless! xx


    1. … feels like home! Thank you so much. I’ve missed you and your awesome poetry, my friend. I may not post AS often as I used to, but I will be around more. That’s a promise.


  2. As I said few minutes ago, I am happy that you came back. I missed so many posts because my reader became too messy following so many blogs that I have no interest to follow but I made beginner’s mistake long time ago thinking that it would be polite to follow everyone. I am working on that thing at the moment and I am glad that you find me in my second home. 🙂 All the best in the new year!


    1. Hey there, and thank you so much. It feels wonderful to be back. Btw, I think we’ve all made the same beginner’s mistake 🙂 I was sad to see a few of my favorites bloggers gone and/or taking a break. I really miss the poets like “WhoCouldKnowThen” – I hope he returns one day. SO happy that I found you again. I’m trying to be around more and post maybe once a month. Happy New Year!


  3. Welcome back! I understand the business of life, but am mighty glad to see you on WP again, I hope to see you more in 2015!
    I love the batch of poems, but I must say that the “Prayer” resonates with me mostly. It made me feel warm and beckoned an honest smile.


    1. Thank you very much, Oloriel. It’s good to be home again. 🙂 I hope I’ll be inspired enough to post at least once a month, but I’ll be reading more regularly. Thank you for the feedback. Glad to hear you liked “Prayer”. It was written for a dear soul in my life.


  4. Oh, my goodness how incredibly beautiful poetry Noora!! 🙂 I have missed your work so much! And believe me, I have no idea why it was saying that I was not following you anymore!! That happened to another site I was following too so I came here just to check, and it has happened to your site too!! But now I have pressed the follow button again, so it should be fine 🙂
    I am so happy to be reading your amazing poetry again Noora ❤
