Julia Yusupova Poems


what kind of love is love?

the kind which aims to unite, not separate

to know or not to know: that is the question:
whether 'tis nobler in the mind to see
the joys and blessings of a holy process,
or to stay blind within a sea of light,

the mind-blowing mystery of it all
never ceases to amaze me

one day you're in complete

while you are stuck picking
between left and right
something just divided you

it's for communication
why else would skies be blue?

surely, to hide behind grey blinds

now i have come to own the privilege
of calling this experience my own

my soul, the matchmaker


trust in perfection of the scheme
as information in the genes
that makes an apple sweet
before it's even bitten into

individuals itching to investigate the Inconceivable Ineffable, Imponderable Intelligence incubate an intention and incur an introduction into the Inexplicably Influential

increasingly, It:
• induces an influx of information after initial insight

not scattering attention
concentrating on intention
breathing out all apprehensions
taking in pure, free volition

Julia Yusupova Biography

Julia Yusupova was born in Tashkent, Uzbekistan and in as a child in 1995 immigrated to Toronto with her family. She obtained a Bachelor degree in Applied Chemistry and Biology from Ryerson University and over the years worked in a wide range of industries including research, legal, teaching, writing, and sales. In 2010, she traveled to Brazil where she spent a few years living and working as a teacher of English and elementary school. It was here that she underwent her first mystical experience. The inspiration for poetry struck spontaneously in 2013. At this point, having spent a few years on a spiritual twin flame path, which her writing is heavily based on, communication of acquired ideas and experiences manifested as the next natural step. She has been writing poems and essays about love, mysticism, psychology, philosophy, and frontier science ever since and has been published in 'Angels' magazine and the 'Poetry Explosion Newsletter.' In 2014, she self-published her first full-length collection 'Résumé of a Mystic' available now on www.amazon.com and selected bookstores around Toronto. At present, Julia's inspiration remains the discovery of the meaning of unconditional love. Read Julia Yusupova's blog here: 2goldenbirds.wordpress.com)

The Best Poem Of Julia Yusupova


what kind of love is love?

the kind which aims to unite, not separate

causes you to think and act in ways
you've never pictured yourself sinking to

in the next instant, uplifts

seizes you and grips relentlessly
while you panic, attempt to battle your way out

you must accept this love as is

although romantic, not the kind
the french claim to have invented

nor the kind with candle lit dinners and soft embraces that a girl's dreams are used to

weird love

sometimes disguised as fear
which labels you insecure, fickle
self-centered, selfish, delusional

love that must acquire all these names
in order to outstrip them

disgraceful, hostile, resentful, competitive abusive, shocking, sorrowful, heart-wrenching
melancholy, accepting, soul-strengthening adventurous, patient, peaceful, pure

you grow to not require this love materially
for it already thrives in spirit

nevertheless, don't doubt the duty
to receive this love in form
when it comes knocking on your gates

this love makes you curse the heavens
which have honored you
with this exalted blessing

it punishes you for submissiveness
and then rewards you for submission

the love that bounces
between freedom and dependency
for it requires both

love that raises abilities but destroys the cozy niche of possessions
you've dug for yourself

not the love that comforts you with a house
cars, and a joint bank account
but the kind that sparks awareness

not the love that is satisfied with compatibility comfort and pretense
but rejoices at their destruction

love that is constantly developing and expanding
but to what?

love that terrifies you with its demand for unyielding trust in the future

the kind that asks and tests
and needs and drains
but grants you joy as you continue giving

the kind that made one mystic say 'you crucified me, but i still love you'

one fine day, this love may finally satisfy your pride and expectations
but by then you will no longer have them

the love that ebbs and flows and ebbs and flows
and finally engulfs

the love that remains
when every other option has been exhausted

the kind that mocks you as you realize
there may never be anything else
but its exquisite self

you cannot win this love you can only surrender

already everything and nothing else

philia, éros, agápe

eternal, total, final


true love
