NAY!

Written by: Munir Mezyed

I love you,   
Nay, I hate you…! 
She let me leave for a dream,   
A dream which turned out to be   
My nightmare 
Lost in its swamps,   
I wandered,   
Pursuing threads of smoke… 
No place could embrace my weariness,   
But cold, dead emptiness   
Sheltering my soul… 
Pale, cold and sad,   
The Moon lost its brilliancy,   
And night became long and heavy. 
She planted me in her bosom,   
Making me dream   
And live in a different world. 
I love you,   
Nay, I hate you…! 
Nay, I won't surrender to this madness,   
This madness that drags me into you…   
I will erase from my memory   
Your charming eyes,   
Your lunar face,   
Your fairy hair,   
Your pearly breast… 
I love you,   
Nay, I hate you…! 
I'll cast out of my soul   
Your voice and perfume,   
Forget the lips   
The lips that bathed me with fire and nectar,   
And ask the nest of my hand   
To let the sparrow of your breast leave…   
After all, will I be able to forget   
And reconcile with my spirit.   
Nay...!
