Why have been me so difficult take the exam TOEFL IBT for me?

Since that I know that the exam Toefl IBT is a requirement for study in any university in the United States. I started out prepare for the exam with a personal teacher, that was a wonderful experience because I didn't study  for an obligation just I did it for desire to study in USA. When I had a good level of English  got a job so I had little time to keep practicing so I decided postpone the date to take the exam.

After that, have been difficult to get the same emotion and…

Sohrab sepehri



Call me

Sweet is your voice

Sweet is the foliage of the strange plant

Grown in the farthest edge of sorrow


Within the space of this silent age

Lonelier am I than the test of a song

Within the scope of the alley’s conception

Come, let me tell you how vast is my loneliness?

My loneliness didn’t predict this ambush of your stature

And this is the characteristic of love…

Tick... tock, tic... tac

Tick.... tock, tic..... tac, second by second, minute by minute turning into the past. You can't stop it, you can't change it. Either you are passively watching some sequences of your life or you are just enjoying your happy moments on the maximum. It is up to you, up to your attitude, percieving the reality, way of thinking. It is up to you, how you have decided to use the most precious thing you were given…

feelings

My eyes light up

I grin

Would like to wait hundred times

just to hear your voice

in a long distance phone call

Love to search your face

in a crowd

Want to see you are staring at me

consciously and unconsciously

When I am in love with you

And, I  let myself

cherish the good time

 do the same thing

because,  I know,  deep down

there is still reminiscence of  love

When I do not love…

The Sky's the Limit

THE SKY IS THE LIMIT

Words embroidered on the blank paper sprinkling from the fountain of brain, conscious and subconscious turn in to the reflections of thoughts, for thoughts, ‘the sky is the limit’ they are infinite.  So you can say a writer can write whatever he wants and or talk about anything he likes.  So as the aspect of life ‘love’ talking, speaking, writing about love is limitless provided one has…
