Lost Love

by Naji AL-Majaresh (English below)

حب تائه

بعد أن هجرتني عادت وقالت.. حبيبي.. وأجبتها

الحب مات في قلبي ومات كل ما تعرفين

جراحي ما زالت تنزف آثار الدمع على الخدين

مجنونة أنتي هل أرجع إليكي بعد الطعن بالسكين

أنا لست ضعيفا بل أنتي فقط تتوهمين

جدراني ما عادت بلورا والسقف ما عاد من طين

أقفلت كل شبابيكي للحب وأغمضت العينين

تاجرتي بحبي يا إمرأة ورميتي القلب بسهمين

ورجعتي إلي باكية بعد أن مات الحنين

عودي من حيث أتيتي كفاني منك ألم وأنين

After she left me, she came back and said… My love… and I replied:

The love died in my heart and everything you know has died.

My wounds are still bleeding with traces of tears on my cheeks.

Are you a fool, how do I return to you after the knife stabbing?!

I am not weak, you were only imagining.

My walls are no longer made of crystal, and my ceiling is no longer made of clay.

I shut all my windows from love, and I closed my eyes.

You traded with my love, and strike my heart with arrows.

You came back to me crying after the longing has died.

Go back to where you came from, I am full of pain and I moan because of you.
