Writing About Alice

In an evening of July, kids on the grass laid after playing around. It was twilight, it’s almost time to go inside. Their hands behind their heads stretched out on the ground, whispering tales here and there with childish fabricated events of imaginary knights. On the grass they were as they said your name, quiet... Continue Reading →

Tell me how you lose your logic sometimes and feel like you are floating to space reaching the crescent moon to give it some of your light   Tell me how you love the stars so much that you feel them twinkling in your chest   Tell me that the child inside you still believes... Continue Reading →

A Letter From an Illusionist

I can make your heart stop for few seconds, or love in your heart that compels you to stare in awe at anything your eyes look at. I once made a girl disappear while everyone was watching and her mother cried out "bring back my daughter!" While I tried to hide my grin not to... Continue Reading →

Microcosmic

There are flames in my heart and flowers in my hair   I rest unafraid; I ingest the sun's light and the moon's serenity and embrace the chronicles of stars inside me   Tell me, Are you ready for a lifetime of adventures ?   © 2014 ALIA SULTAN

A Man in Time

He was the sole person I couldn’t feel time moving around whenever we conversed.

2 AM

My phone clutched in my hand Desperate whispers Prisoned tears Rise and fall of breaths Trapped inside my chest   There's only silence on the other end And my reflection in the mirror I feel more beautiful than ever   There's silence on the other end Phone unplugged The only whispers I hear are mine...

Depths

Let me fracture this ground or plant it with peonies I am still not sure Whether I want to walk gracefully or crawl on my knees   Let me find stardust in my confusing collision or please walk away   I’m seeking my dazed identity as I stand on the edge of the world to... Continue Reading →

3 AM

It’s 3 AM and you stand by your window while your white curtains glow of the bright moonlight that has become a faithful listener to the secrets you hide Your thoughts wander half a planet away before launching off to Jupiter and those who would pass by your window would assume you’re thinking about a...
