Closet Monster !!

In the middle of the night
Under the white moonlight
I left the world of existence.
Everything material in absence
I was flying with wings of imagination
Flying away from every nation
Passed the edge of the Universe
Nonexistence made me immerse
My eyes were closed, my ears plugged
Head was heavy, like I was drugged
I meet my love, I don't need eyes
The only truth, the rest all lies.
I can feel him in my heart, in every cell
Beauty for real, greatness excel

You are not trembling, he would say.
Not afraid? Man made of clay?
Haven't you heard stories of hell and fire?
All I see is a soul, full of desire.

I laugh and say, my mom was pointing to the closet
When I was a child, I would run like a rocket.
For the Monster would jump out if I was bad
Nobody would want to make him mad....

Later I learned by looking at her eye.
While she is alive, nothing can hurt me or make me cry.
No monster could enter under her watch.
With her and dad, my protection was top notch.
You are my creator, the essence of love.
You are closer than both, watching over me from above.
Why should I be afraid? I have you my Lord.
All I have to do is stick to this accord.

Monster in Closet

Monster in the Closet

دیو درون پسخانه
شبی زین دنیای هستی‌ گسستم
به دنیای خیالاتم بپیوستم
دیدم نگاری با آن زیبائی و هیبت
ببستم چشم، جان گشت غرق لذت
شنیدم صدایی  با گوش دل‌
چرا آسوده یی توی این منزل
از این هیبت زین بزرگی
نیفتاد لرزه ٔبر اندامت گهی
مگر داستان آتش، قصه جهنم
شنیده یی تو از ملا و مردم
خندیدم و گفتم ز کودکی‌ام بیاد آید
چو مادر مرا ز دیو در پسخانه ترساند
با ‌یک نگاه در احوالش دانستم
چو او زنده باشد، چو پدر گیرد دستم
نه‌ دیوی سراغم آید نه‌ شیطان
بود آرامش مرا در جان و روان
تو‌ای آفریده گار نزدیکی ز هردو
نباشد پناهی مرا مگر آغوش تو
توی جوهر عشق، تو یی آغاز خوبی
ازان انجامم نباشد مگر لطف بی‌ منتهی
