Buried in my heart



I stopped searching now
for I found you in my heart
all this time you were
kept safely there

Why I lost you and how
almost tore me apart
My insight was blurred
shrouded by despair

and my steady heart beats
don't sound the same anymore
The way I see things
differs from before

The wound was engraved
and in the stillness of night
it bleeds the pain out
then heals by daylight

Feelings were masked
No questions were asked
for when you died
you were buried in my heart

Dema Al-Obaidy Claim this poet

لم يعرفوني في الظلال التي تمتص لوني في جواز السفر.......وكان جرحي عندهم معرضا لسائح يعشق جمع الصور......لم يعرفوني..آه لا تتركي كفي بلا شمس.......لأن الشجر يعرفني؛ تعرفني كل اغاني المطر.......لا تتركيني شاحبا كالقمر! ......عار من الاسم من الانتماء في تربة ربيتها باليدين......ايوب صاح اليوم ملء السماء لا تجعلوني عبرة مرتين!........يا سادتي يا سادتي الانبياء لا تسألوا الاشجار عن اسمها لا تسألوا الوديان عن امها......من جبهتي ينشق سيف الضياء ومن يدي ينبع ماء النهر.........كل قلوب الناس جنسيتي.......فلتسقطوا عني جواز السفر. more…
