What do you do when you have roamed from country to country, keeping your love in the core of your heart, wretched restlessness holding your interest as hostage? Do you feel the growth and decay of your life rise and fall as you hide this unspeakable love? It is too much to hide, and too much to expose.

 Over my sleepless nights, over my actions and my thoughts, and definitely over my dreams and the waking hours, my love reigned. And yet, it stayed aloof and distant. Untouchable, buried deep within my being.

 And finally, when I gave up and became my own person, this same love, this desire from deep within me, raised its head and said, “Recognize me? I am yours. Don’t let go of me. Loneliness does not become you!”

About Zakiah

I write poetry and some fiction, have a book that was published in 2012. . . Stray Thoughts/Winged Words. I have four grandchildren, ages 16 and half to almost 16 months. I love the ocean, and grew up along the Indian Ocean in South India. I am a retired physician. Don't know much else to say. Thanks for reading. That has been my profile for so many years. My daughter Saadia a great poet and story teller, has two sons; the oldest grandson is now 21 years old, doing architectural engineering at Missouri S&T in Rolla MO. His younger brother is almost 16 and taking driving lessons seriously and is in High School. The other two grandsons, children of my son Sayeed, are 9 and 5. I have recently published another book titled Gulistan, A home of Flowers. It has stories and memories of my childhood and of a distant land which I still consider as my HOME., even though I have lived here in the US for more than fifty years. Hope to see you on my blog.

    It is lovely, Dr. Zakiah. Bottle up love is the way of life for too many. Love is the answer and it seems in short support around the planet.
