Arabic Poem by: Mohanna Al-Khikani *
Inaam Al-Hashimi (Gold_N_Silk)
I only want
To hide my memory,
A shirt coming out of the night with ample
Saturated with the fragrant smell of makeup.
A new step has not yet come out
I enshroud my bewilderment with a last embrace
And get ready to die, leaving behind
All this nonsense!
