You Bestow My Heart A Ceaseless Trance

by NOURA HATEM

I’m a fettered desire
swirling perfectly
like a blizzard
within myself,

and a broken dream
flopping
amidst the gloominess
of an ebony night,

life incinerates
my ambitions
then scatters the cinders
here and there…
as time unweaves
my patched wounds
unfolding each secret
you once carved
upon my skin,

but you…

vitalize my depths
nestling my thoughts
in your forever paradise,
cooling each tempest
I bear inside,
unawares.

you,
have this fragile
heart of mine
where, inside each beat,
a weeping promise quivers,
a dream tramps
along the shores
of mortality.
