All I want is You.
I sat on the bumper of a car because my legs could not hold me anymore, and I cried tears of desperation. Heaving, shuddering, buckling under the weight of separation.
You are so beautiful. So intoxicating. So perfect.
I want to spend forever with You.
And I cannot endure the pain of Your withdrawal.
Do not walk away from me.
Do not turn away from me.
Do not ever leave me to be in this world without You.
I cannot bear it, Layla.
I am just a man. A simple man. And You are You. Magnificent You.
I smell You in the evening wind.
I feel You against my skin.
I taste You in every joy.
And the yearning.
You are the One who started this.
I am only responding to Your smiles.
If I cannot trust that You will not break Your promise to this weak man than I have nothing.
looking up at Your apartment window
the soft glow of the light of Your home
so far from my grasp
while I am cold, wet, and shivering on the street below
yearning with every desire I have ever had
for one moment in Your embrace
There is nowhere else to go
I will stand on this street until I pass out
and even then
I will hope that You will come pick up my motionless body
and bring me into Your home
because that is all I want
all I have ever wanted
expressed in a million ways
in moments remembered
and yet to come
لا إله إلا الله
