My Heart Is In Torment(Edition: 5 Dec.2015)
Or 'From Syria & Palestine To Iraq & Yemen & To Beirut & Paris'
Oh, child! Why do you sleep deep beneath the waves?
Oh, how my heart is in torment
Because Of the impossibility to go beyond these illusory borders.
My Heart is in torment for the continuing deaths
And for the atrocity of hearts that are only empty vessels
Through which we cannot hope that love and kindness will more flow.
Oh love, will you not heal the broken pieces of our hearts?
Oh child, keep hope alive and do not fear life.
My heart is in torment for hands that mimic the ...
That Midnight had rooted a fresh light
inside my heart;
That Dawn had sprouted a fresh feeling
within my soul;
That day, my body, my soul, my heart
were crazy with love;
That night, because of you,
my wit deserted me.
