You ask 

for my wholeness.

Once again,

I say

‘I am scattered’.

Gaze on a real world, 

beyond the darkened windows. 

Pieces less a puzzle.

How long did you

stay alive

without breath?

Now rise up

from depths,

fully dressed alone.

the child molester,

nor is it sex

had by force.

Islam is not

the oppressor,

nor is it evil

of no remorse.

a misused verse,

A heart

not given

is mine

to earn.
