A WOMAN IN LOVE
Poem by: Mahmoud Said Kawash

That day I wished to say things I had never said before
To do things I had never done before
To make new epochs between me and him
To draw new far hopes in the eyes of love
To throw a hymn into the melodies of my sentiments
And to sing while the passion enriches the nascent evenings

That day I wished to waddle among the trees of the jungle
To let my boats be lost in the futility of my grunts
To wander in the foggy climate with homeless moans
To penetrate the streets, roads and alleys with new hopes and dreams
To walk under the showers of rain while I am reciting happy songs
And to free myself from the names which caused my bad luck

I had never accepted to be a woman sitting on a vacant seat
I had always loved myself, and I will do now and after
No man dared to hurt meŽ-or-disturb my pulses
No man dared to jump over my loving heart
Had those happened, I would have taken the initiative to confess love
I would not hesitate even a moment to accept love and thank God

That is how I strive to explain the situation while I am in the arms of thoughts
That is how I show a present fraught with the breeze of future!!
