about the ways
in which you are human
flawed, broken, vulnerable
and all you have endured
in this thing called life
I will show you
there is beauty
in that brokenness
that makes you
more lovable in my eyes
more precious in my heart
than any illusion
I will continue
to love you
despite your scars
I will love you
So much truth and wisdom in these words.. couldn’t help but share. If it spoke to you, you can follow more of Zafar’s soulful poetry and journey at https://themidnightflyer.com

How much you are able to give…
This is the measure of the gift within you.
We are all gatekeepers to each others’ soul.
There is only one (sole) soul.
Love is the eye that sees the Soul,
through the light of a shimmering tear.
So thank you for every tear;
they have helped me to open my
Now ink drips from my eyes onto a page meant to heal
these torn hearts of ours.
We are all scarred….
The healers are the ones who let the scars break open.
should I mock you
or weep with you
such an innocent little fool you are!
in the whirlwinds of storm,
you withstood the freezing cold
in the heat of blazing fire,
you got pricked by thorns
knowing well whats coming next
you still teeter along!
with this tenderness, this strength
fearlessness and this craziness
I give you reasons
but you throw them away
I try to sit you down
but you want to break into dance and sway
ah what was whispered to you
that you’ve grown these wings
which nectar once quenched your thirst
that you run around looking for sweetness
what image do you behold
whose beauty makes you wild in ecstasy
only if someday I could trick you
into believing me
only if one day, I could show you the difference
between the black and gold
the pieces and the whole
if that day comes
would you still bother to keep beating?
would you still care to keep loving?
