Lebanese Jester

Me, my Lebanon, and I.com weblog

A blast from MY past !

The glow
Around your face
When you see
The lightning race
I know
I’m very near
And I can hear
The thunder

A woman
Of perplexity
A woman
For eternity
A woman
Of the land
A woman
For a man
I’m down
On my knees
And I’m saying
Please believe me

It’s hard
To fall out
Of love
Completely
It’s harder
To find a way
To come back
Discreetly
To speak
Of things anew
To weep
In quiet blue

Brocade upon your bed
Memories should fade
At least of you
A scepter
Of ice and fire
A specter
Of my desire
A girl-child
Of such loveliness
The woman
Of my emptiness

A woman
Of famed
Renown
A woman
Who kicks the clown
A woman
Of the land
A woman
For a man
