Fabrics Of My Heart…

Dear Santa,

l am in love with a Muslim girl.

I know, I know but she knows Abraham,Moses and she even believes our Lord Jesus was a prophet so that should count for something right. I have tried to forget about her but everytime she drops me a message I get that weird swooping ache that you are only supposed to get when you are madly in love or something so maybe, just maybe – she is my or something.

I can only imagine that you think I have been a really bad boy, but I too want to be in love with something, with someone just long enough for them to almost take my breath away. Everytime she drops me a message I want to tell her that she feels like home, like a place that makes me forget that the world is on fire, like sunshine and of how I melt everytime I hear the vibrations of her voice. I want to say something but I do not know what. She is what I dreamed it could be, of how it should be and it will be inshallah.

Dear Santa, ain’t it remarkable how the pattern of love is so similar to that of insanity?. Do you believe in reincarnation?, because I swear and can bet my last pair of clean socks that this girl is Aphrodite and I Adonis. I left a yellow sticky note with a love song written on it in the pages of her notebook the other day. I had hoped she would read in between the lines and be reminded of me, of us but maybe I was wrong. Maybe we have lived through so many lives, we are starting to loose the best memories of ourselves. After so many once upon a times maybe, just maybe in every ending there comes with it a new beginning. And if you think of it, we are all time travelers now ain’t we. Depending on what we are feeling at that moment, our emotions slow down or fast forward time.

Dear Santa, I am in love with a Muslim girl and no this is not a threat okay, after all I have been a very good boy lately but if you do not reply to this letter, you might not find me at church come Christmas eve. Heck I might convert to Islam…


Good Boy

 .And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

    This is a moving piece, love is a beautiful thing but sometimes you wonder if you are making the best decision.
