My feeling

by Naji Al-Majareesh (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 of my love —

My eyes have cried and my words were flooded with tears;

I write my pain and my broken heart,

I write about a present and a past that will never return.

I write with a pencil and erase whenever I want

But my pain is in poisoned ink and that’s the end of it.
