These poems represent moments in time since I became serious about poetry in January, 2014. Some of those moments have passed; others never truly will. In addition to posting my poems here, I have performed them at various showcases and open mics. All original content: Copyright 2014-2017 Shaheen J. Dibai. All rights reserved.

You are the new face in my life
The new name on my lips
The new voice in my ear.
But who are you?
Nobody really knows.
I want to bring you into my world -- but you don't belong in my world.
So why do I belong in yours?
The line between us is easily crossed...but sharply drawn.
And no matter how you get to me
No matter how you inspire me
No matter how you move me
You'll always be the outsider.
Getting to me...but not my people.
Inspiring me...to leave behind the ones who were already here.
Moving me...perhaps in the wrong direction.
WHO THE HELL ARE YOU?!?!
Maybe you mean no harm.
But you're destructive.
You're destroying the unity in my universe.
You're upsetting the balance in my life.
No -- I cannot let you. I WILL NOT LET YOU!
For I have room in my life for someone to care for like I care for no other
