“It does not matter how slow you go so long as you do not stop.

I didn’t miss you today
can you believe that?
sure you crossed my mind a couple of times
but surprisingly I didn’t think about you every second of the day

I think I’m getting better
and I’m coming to realization;
I don’t need you to be happy
I never did

You see,
that was my mind playing games and tricks on me
they say your mind is the biggest barrier that you face
and after months of feeling so lousy and hopeless
I’m slowly overcoming this barrier
I’m learning to fight back, fire with fire

I don’t need you to make me happy
because even when I had you
you made me feel nothing but anger and agony
so it no longer makes any sense to me;
to continuously hurt and feel sorry for myself
over someone that hurts me as much as you do

I’m actually proud of myself
It’s been months
and I never thought I’d see this day coming
lets just hope that this feeling of hatred stays

because I deserve better
so much better than
( salsabil ald )

My lover asks me:
“What is the difference between me and the sky?”
The difference, my love,
Is that when you laugh,
I forget about the sky.

Sunrise and my love for you.
Things that don’t change every morning.

If you want to kill somebody, conquer his heart,

Then leave slowly and leave them between death and madness.

—Nizar Qabbani (via surbeat)

فرشته یادی بود
فرشته خوابی بود
فرشته خاطره بود
فرشته رفت که رفت

She was a memory
She was a dream
She was reminiscence
She left…She left

—Qahar Aasi (via honeyandelixir)

Out of jasmine the night’s blood streams white.
Your perfume, my weakness and your secret, follows me like a snakebite

—Mahmoud Darwish (via honeyandelixir)

خفتم بیاد یار در آغوش گل ولی
آغوش گل کجا و بر و دوش او کجا؟

In memory of my beloved, I slept in a rose’s arms
Oh but there is no comparison between my lover’s embrace and a rose.

—رهی معیری (via honeyandelixir)

تو رفتی
و من هرگز
ستاره ای را
در آسمان ندیدم

You left
And I
Never again
Saw any stars in the sky

—ایرج جنتی عطایی (via honeyandelixir)

بارشوں کے بعد اُجلا آسماں
تیری آنکھوں میں بہت اچھا لگا

The shimmering sky after rain,
Looked so beautiful through your eyes

— احمد فواد (via honeyandelixir)

در دنیا چیزی ندارم
جز چشم های تو و غم های خویش

I have nothing in this world
except for your eyes and my sorrows

—Nizar Qabbani (via honeyandelixir)
