Revelations Iv - Poem by Atef Ayadi

Before I start to hate you
I cover my head with another woman's hair
So I can forget your smell.

I fall on another woman's chest
So I can forget
My secure house,
My old garden,
My promise land, and
My promised heaven.

I will keep love as it is.

I will only change one face with another
The way I used to change a fainted candle with another
Each time your dark hair
Hides the full moon
And reveals my face.

Any woman will keep me away from my rage;
Any woman will wash away your smell,
But no woman can kill you inside me.
