Free Verse # 137 (you fell into my heart)

You fell into my heart
like the Word of Fate,
the world’s storms
inside a bolt of lightning,
the sun inside aburning coal,
a furnace of stars.

~

Let me be the breath
flowing amid the banks of your soul.

Let me be the tears
falling inwards and washing your heart whole.

~

كرحيق ربيع ثمل بأزهاره
عشقت قبلتها خدي
واذا به سهل تتموج فيه
أجنحة الفراشات
ومنه يفيض عسل الحب
آهات ايروسية وأنهار شبق.

~

قبلة حبيبتي المسكوبة من عطر الشمس،
تدمي وتكوي
وفي الجسد ترسم الأشعار…

~

من شفتيك ارتويت حتى امتلىء صدري
من نور الشمس وفاض،
نهر شعرصوفي من عيني ينساب
راسماً العالم بلون عطرك،
حافراً وجهك في وجه السماء.

~

Her voice, haunting me
like the moon in the sky,
calls out the stars
from the womb of night
to sink into my skin,
churn her song deep inside.

~

Winter’s lust is ice,
like your razor blade lips
coursing my body
and with snowflake-kisses
inflicting their might.

~

كضوء القمر
تكسر عشقي أمواجاً أمواج
فوق طهر هضابك،
والى عمق أعماقق سال،
همس نار في دمك
في قعر الليل على شفتيك يزبد
نشوة وأشعار

قبلة الحب

قبلة الشمس التي زرعتها الحياة في قلبي احترقت
عندما لامس جبينك جبيني،
عندما تعانقت أنفاسنا وسط حقول شفاهنا المتشابكة،
واذ بي عمود من لهب ملتف كالأفعى حول بحر شبقك،
عاصراً رحيق أنوثتك نجوماً منثورة فوق ألسنة الأرض العطشى،
ذائباً في جسدك كجمر أحمر لأنمو،
أشجار فاكهتها نجومٌ بشرتها حمراء
وقلبها أتون بالشعر يزبد.

Free Verse # 136 (I am a wordless whisper)

I whisper to the wind
and the wind carries my sighs,
melts them in your eyes,
butterflies of light
in your heart burning…

~

The wind blows,
my flowers shake
sighing all their nectar
in her mouth
which she then places
against yours,
exhaling to your depth…

~

A flower on the edge
of the horizon blooms,
her scent, infiltrating
heart and soul
and calling, calling…

~

You draw near
and I shiver like dry hay
in the presence of fire,
the vessel of my heart
fills and overflows
with nameless blessings
burning me whole.

~

I call you into me
as the ocean calls the rivers,
as the sun calls the stars
at the break of each day.

~

Harnessing the purity of dawn,
I blossom on your lips.

~

Place your thirsty lips
at the fountain of my soul
and drink of my inexhaustible passion…

~

The stars of heaven
I set into orbit around your face,
the aura of your smile…

~

I am a wordless whisper
swaying on your lips
like waves in the wide ocean,
eternally ebbing and flowing
inside a world
the universe cannot contain.

Free Verse # 135 (spring in her body)

A cloud in my sky ~
is this not being a tree
with roots tangled
around my spine,
piercing into my heart
and suckling at its sap?

~

يتيمة ولدت قصيدتي كسنبلة قمح تحت قمر الخريف،
ومع انتصاف الليل، مع حصادالروح ماتت
لتولد مع الفجر، سهل يتموج مع أنفاس الحبيب

~

Your kiss,
ushering a reign of fire,
burned my house and clothes
and left me homeless,
a star melted
inside the lava ocean
of your heart.

~

I summon your water
into the bowl of my desire,
then dip my pen
to tickle your skin
into a seething ecstasy,
each curve a lightning
searing into your skin
the sighs of my poetry.

~

You spell my name
and I come into existence,
then you erase it
and I disappear
deep in the heart of you.

~

At midnight
the thorn you planted in my heart
bloomed into a beautiful rose,
a red moon which fragrance rose
to brush the stars in your dark hair,
scatter them like dreams
over the sleeping earth.

~

Spring inhabited her body
for the moment she touched me
all the hidden seeds
within me stirred and sighed
beholding in her dark eyes
dawn’s bluest sky.

~

Forged in the furnace of your love,
I am a star forever fluttering
amid the flowers of the sky
and spreading ecstasy,
gathering their nectar
in the womb of your sun.

~

With a flamed tongue
and a ravaged heart
I drink and suckle
at the flowers of your flesh,
the milk of your body.

Free Verse # 134 (writing you, my poetry)

Like a fish in the water,
like a bird in the air,
like a star in the nightsky ~
you move under my skin.

~

Dreams?
What remains of them
but the glow of your love…

~

Rising out of my chest
my longing for you
spreads through the ether,
invisible strings
shivering at the wind’s touch,
bathing the world
in the music of your love.

~

 Infiltrating my heart
like the softest dawn,
your kiss breathed
new life into my heart,
raising my burning soul
to the altar of your love.

~

Take me on your wing
and plant me in the garden
where ground is blooming skies.

~

Free falling,
a universe warped around our love,
rotating to the pulse
of two hearts in unison, beating.

~

Your every stroke and caress
marks a riverbed into my skin
that your kisses then fill
with roaring floods of water.

~

Writing you ~
my poetry.
