Avec toute la tendresse du monde ...
Je t’embrasse et je te laisse ...


And here it goes ...

Three taps on a glass and grains of water on pale dunes.
Her rhythmic cycle uncouples falls out of phase out of tune,
suddenly, all the mistakes of a lifetime align in mockery --
the facts melt the details turn in a daze of reverie …

A tap on her back sends shivers down her soul to freeze
The weight of the world presses on her crumbling knees
She looks for her own reaction in a moment of stupor,
Her body rendered stiff gelled on her feet like an armor.

And a mystical touch of fortune and the tales of the days,
Green the color of his soul piercing glistening auburn rays.
Was it the magic of the night or was it the stories to tell --
Was it original madness taste of sin or was it a spell to expel?

Come to my heart come to my arms come beside my eyes,
She said, come sad come joyful come a blessing to the skies
With all the tenderness of the world and with all that she is
She wore her coat took her ring off and gave him a goodbye kiss …

Here it goes ...
Life …

i loved reading your writing while listening to "da2 khil2i" in the previous post.. it was almost as if i was reading each line just as you were writing it while you listened to fairuz sing "da2 khil2i"..

i love the rhyme and meter here:

Ya sabi-l-ma btifham min nazra
Wla b7atta 7aki

Mani3ni if3al aw i2ti
Ayya 7araki

Mtawwa2ni b7obak w msayyaj min 7awli E-dinya w 3an janabi

mbari7 3al-wasli mfattishli 3'radi

who is the sabi here? just a lover? or the various traditional warlords that suffocated the average lebanese for decades? ziad is a genius.

transient said...

brilliant, i like how your posts take the reader/viewer to various conflicting spaces from the nostolgic to the calculated, from the emotional to the logical with romance and euphoria to counter frustration and anger.

Are all the words in your posts yours?

Anonymous said...

Your words are so descriptive... very intimately detailed... im not gonna explain what intimately detailed is.. thats how I want to describe what u wrote...

hayde took her ring off.. ma 3ajabitne ktir.. I pray it's fiction?

Miss talkin to u mirv.. did u see Bou?

Mirvat said...

no hashem you're filled in.. :)

thnx lirun

transient, thank you , it's more frustration than notalgia and reveries.. and yes of course all the words are mine.

marmoura, thank you. i miss talking to you too.. i guess you left and already settled and relaxed. i didn't see bou, i'll give her a call first thing after i'm done.. and yes, fiction.. i don' have a ring... yet :)

Was it a final goodbye kiss? Maybe she removed the ring to symbolizes love without attachment..I wonder.. :) Nice poem Mirvat..

jooj said...

intense and cynical. Just like life.
I like her

Mirvat said...

and maybe she's not to be attached.. ever! :)

jooj, cynical yeah but life is not intense, more like absurd..

wonderful!! still u don't get Lirun, the minster of propaganda and false peace???
He is at it again, indirect spreading of false believes and propaganda...Thru nice words and peace talks..At same time he will chase all negatives regarding you, your country and your religions making all atrocities committed by his country a result of whatever else...very clear dude..!

He will act nice until you give him the needed comfort and wham another stupid thing comes enough to make you feel more than miserable again...

Lirun, how much do you get paid to do this bytheway... fess up man :)

Muhajar :) said...

What the hell does this have to do with the price of tea in China?
Mirvat, too bad Yurin spoiled your "afternoon" post with his "morning" venom. delete him once and for all.

Mirvat said...

ok, no political comments on non political posts.. i think that's fair. i'm sick of politics for now and don't want to encourage fights anymore.. yalla break from endless arguments..

So, do you think love can still exist without attachment?
