What is love?
Do people really know it or do they just think they do?
Do people just claim it and make themselves believe what's untrue?
What is love?...
Do you know the different types and ways?
I do....(c)

Water of Life

The water of life is leaking from my soul...

Torrents of emotions,

waves of expression,
and tides of love making me whole.

Come drown with me into the sea of Life

lets sail upon my heart's stream...

lets dive deep into my mind

and discover treasures unseen...

Flow with me down the river of intellect,

lets bathe our spirits in Hope's pool,

Wash our egos with the ocean of realness,

swim through the waterfalls of dreams,

and lets let the water of life storm upon us,

and flood through our life's scenes.

My Heart, sometimes fragile, yet simultaneously hard and cold…

Mine expands with outbursts of emotion, while containing secrets untold…

Covered with cuts, scrapes and burns, but still looking for a person to hold...
Finding relief for my pain is worth more than any mountain of gold,

Come bring me relief, help my feelings unfold…(c)
-Maryam Noori-


I gotta go, gotta go, gotta go away from here.
I’m running towards salvation,
Tired of facing my worst fears…

I know its meant to make me stronger,
It has made my life’s value much more dear,
But I’m afraid of this life-lesson,
The answers are becoming way too clear…

The comfort of illusion,
this temporary bliss,
makes you fall weak to your knees,
when you receive the devil’s kiss.

I gotta go, gotta go, gotta go away from here.
I’m running towards salvation,
Tired of facing my worst fears…

Constant battle of right and wrong,
Stuck in time, can’t tell the difference between night and day,
I must get to the place for which my heart longs,
I just have to find my way.

Life is just an expiration date,
For when you leave this temporary earth,
You’ll realize material has no value,
We have to learn about Love’s true worth…

I gotta go, gotta go, gotta go away from here,
I’m running towards salvation,
Tired of facing my worst fears…

God tests those whom He loves the most,
This I know is true,
And when I think I can’t go further,
I know my Creator will be with me then, too. (c)

I swear, since seeing Your face,
the whole world is fraud and fantasy
The garden is bewildered as to what is leaf
or blossom. The distracted birds
can't distinguish the birdseed from the snare.

A house of love with no limits,
a presence more beautiful than venus or the moon,
a beauty whose image fills the mirror of the heart.
