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.
