The tortured mind of a gentle soul that was never meant for the cruelty of this world, Laura’s obsessive, unrequited love for her beloved Mubarak sent her on a downward spiral that culminated in her falling to her death from the 148th floor of the Burj Khalifa, Dubai, the tallest building in the world, on the 16th of November 2014. She was 38 years old. Her death was covered up by the government of Dubai.
This book is a collection of Laura’s thoughts, notes, emails, and messages that she left behind on her iPhone, her tablet, her computer, a laptop, and in her paperwork and documents, in the years and months leading up to her tragic suicide.
From page 43, 19 December 2009. Zighy Bay, Oman.
I have lost myself in them yet something real I have found…
They are going on for miles on end
on and on.
Will I find my way back
or will I be lost forever?”
From page 51, March 2010, Dubai
“I am not strong enough to hold on anymore!!!
Your love I feel inside me
and in my heart you will always be
but sometimes to love someone enough
is to know when to let them go!!!”
An extract from page 60, 27 April 2010, Dubai.
“And the truth is that the darkness I feel
is not about me, but about us.
It is the darkness that surrounds you
which brings out the stillness in me
and awakens me.”
Page 66, 3 June 2010, Saudi Arabia. Laura speaking about Dubai.
“Follow your heart
so I follow my heart
it swirls with energy when it thinks of being back with you.
Like adrenaline that rushes through me
nudging and pushing me to go back and be reunited once again!
Dubai, I love you, but fear keeps me from you!!!”
From Laura’s Voice Whispers from an Angel, page 22, 4 October 2009. I think it is beautiful. She was at the Royal Court of Bahrain at the time.
“The colours of the notes of a piano are black and white
that play the tunes of a rainbow to your soul.”
