My feeling

Poem by Naji Al-Majaresh (English below)


لا يغرنك شعوري وأحاسيسي بالهوى

فإن عيني باكية وكلماتي غمرتها الدموع

أكتب من وجع أكتب من قلب إنكوى

أكتب عن حاضر وعن ماضي فقد الرجوع

خطي بقلم الرصاص أكتبه متى شئت إنمحى

لكن وجعي بحبر مسموم هذا هو الموضوع

ناجي المجاريش

Don’t be deceived by my feelings of love —
My eyes are crying and my words are filled with tears.
I write from pain, I write from a burned heart,
I write about a present and about a past that lost its way.
I write by pencil, to be erased whenever I want.
But my pain is poisoned with ink and that’s the end of it.
