“I am
Most
Alone
Among people.”
Yousef Alqamoussi, poems

“When it's all too stupid out here,
I hide in books.”
Yousef Alqamoussi, poems

“I used to think / that writing is written to be read; it isn't. / Writing is written / to be written.”
Yousef Alqamoussi, poems

“There is in me an insatiable thirst for a quest. For discovering things greater than ourselves. Beyond that is a murky darkness which beckons me to its call. I seek movement for movement's sake. There is no destination except the verb of motion...I seek to dive into the unknown and allow its wisdom to take me away. And when it is finished with me, it will bring me back and things will never be the same again.”
Yousef Alqamoussi, Chapter One: Costa Rica

“I am
Most
Alone
Among people.”
Yousef Alqamoussi, poems

“Travel is just as much a journey inward as it is a journey out. As we soar the skies and sail the waters and crack the virgin soils of the earth, we too delve into our own caverns, peek around the corners of our dreams, tremble before our fire-breathing terrors, axe to splinters our biases and judgments and beliefs, and discover the uncharted wonders of our psyches and our hearts.”
Yousef Alqamoussi, Chapter One: Costa Rica

“Just let me know
when my fifteen minutes are up.”
Yousef Alqamoussi, poems

“And once the kaleidoscopic whirr of the universe folded and felded and melted into the next song we gently opened our eyes and with a gentle gust we parted like parting lips like parting water drops like parting whispers in the wind's icy drift and her sweet dark hair and crisp white blouse and taut blue jeans floated away and drafted daintily down the stairs and I never saw her again.”
Yousef Alqamoussi, Chapter One: Costa Rica
