How I Wish- (This is not poetry)
How I wish to hold you close in my arms
To put my head on your naked chest
To spread my hair between the folds of your hands.
How I wish to let you play the sweetest melodies of infatuation
On the drums of my heart
To let you listen to the lyrics of my breath as they carve themselves on your sweat
Pouring down the plains of your neck.
How I wish to hear you whisper in my ears
As your mystic breath paves the way for those three words
نحبك، نعشقك، نموت عليك
I love you, I adore you, I cannot live without you
How I wish to let the tip of your numb fingers lay a thousand kisses
On my parched skin
To rip the desert dress off of my body
And wash it with the spirit of the Virgin Mary.
