Dhol (a drum)

Another experiment…see how this one goes 🙂

Hear this amazing
beat of the drum
Dum dum dum
Dum dum dum
Dadum Dadum
Dadum Dadum
Its frenzied pace
Its motion its race
Pumping heart
Thumping hum
Dum dum dum
Dum dum dum
Dadum dadum
Dadum dadum
Let’s dance
till will drop
Let’s dance
Never stop
Dum dum dum
Dum dum dum
Da dum da dum
Dadum dadum

Dum dum dum
Dum dum dum
Dadum dadum
Dadum dadum

Dance

Delicate
So delicate
Life’s rhythm
Once disrupted
Goes out of sync
Let me think
How do I link
Broken beads
Torn threads
Undo deeds
Resow seeds
Re link chains
Calming pains
Pump up hearts
Refit parts
Make it work
Make it run
Make it fun
Play it hard
Rhythm restored
Life assured

Urge

Dance of death
Fire ragging each pore
fly without wings
Drop and sink
End of this fair
Swinging in the air
Last twist, tango kick
Blood throwing sick
Lesions snakes lick
Thousand daggers
Hit and flick
Head on a stick
Heart on a brick
I still dance
for the beloved

Jubilation

Flute creates a song
Birds sing their hearts
Feet just don’t stop
Let’s dance with Darwish
And whirl with the earth
Days become nights
Night become days
On their feet,
everyone stays
Angels dance
that never ends
Celebration just
extends and extends

Begging bowl

Uncontrollable passion
I just want to dance
I may be found insane
Inane, crazy, half wit, with no brain
these feet don’t want to stop
The rhythm is given by the beat of the heart
Hoo Hoo Haq hoo,
the beggar’s call, mighty fall
nothing matters, nothing at all
Is this the moment, to remove senses
No time no tenses,
No boundaries no fences,
Totally immersed in the ocean of love
Nothing seems of any value
Shaking head, dancing feet
being the sole answer
Worldly possessions seem cancer
Want to get rid of these tumours
All facts, findings mere rumours
And leave all my possessions
belongings, frustrations
just me and bare I
Urges wish to die, then die
I dance and I dance
Darwish has woken up in a trance
Never ever going to sleep again
senses regain, nothing
just a desire to move
in this rhythm of eternity
Index fingers moving up,
Doesn’t know where to stop
Begging you to hold my hand
Make me understand
What I am going through

Last wish

Soul cries incessantly tears of solitude
I am lost in the wilderness without you
I forgot you in my heart, blinded by faith
The music played on, passion had its death
I danced and danced till blood seeps through my toes
Please have some pity and listen to my woes
My master, my soul, to the last breath
Don’t leave me a comatose soul with no solace
Servant, a slave, a concubine in your palace
Take me in, crush my heart for my deed
Cut my flesh in pieces, revenge tigers to feed
Savagery that will be, only self to blame
Each piece will still call your name
At last at last, my pain will cease
I will die, in absolute tranquility and peace
