Naeem Rahman Poems
Fire From Heaven
And to realize the fire arose from the unbroken icy water. I raised there watching
Wait not for my return, soon, as time fades, I will be forgotten. Let go of this hand, dearest of all,
Do you recognize the face in the painting the structure, colors in an enclosed frame? Is it me you have been seeing
Oh, Forgive me, I bow blame me not now; -come and become closer my friend;
To endless I stare absolute obscure I see; -behind becomes grayer as you step upon me.
I heard them, heard them all, I have seen them, seen them all.
And I was created weak, such that none shall seek.
You And I
Behold to that you have done it wrong - your thoughts are no more than fiction.
Arms Of He
Into the arms of The Failure I fall, - greeting me with a pleasant smile He asked, "You know why you are here? " I responded; "I'd pursue alike answer."
A Struggle To Fly
I have observed you struggle to fly. Have you yet witnessed yourself succeed, or living with regret is all you have to try?
A Hope For Tomorrow
Fall, as I begin to pray It was hard until yesterday, I feared what tomorrow,
The desired answers are flourishing into the infinite deep, dark blue sky. The world goes round and round, spinning. Breeding the wind to let them fly.

Fire From Heaven
And to realize the fire
arose from the unbroken icy water.
I raised there watching
as shawl moves by the breeze, blowing.
The heat warmed the skin
and the breathing flesh frozen within.
The skeleton dissolved away.
Tried! But couldn't make them stay.
Drops of flame are infinitely above
by the inflamed rosy sky of burning love.
Thus surrounds me, the annihilation
of our world's very deception.
I sensed the storm of harmony
an inhabitant lacking all curiosity.
