    Being the only girl out of five children, she was mostly taken care of by her grandmother because her father did not accept having a girl after having four boys. Arabic poetry inspired her when she was a girl, later causing her to write her own poetry. She also enjoyed painting because her aunt was a painter, as well as photography.

ما تتركه لنا الوحدة

اغمض عيني
لتأمل حافة أجفاني
واحتفاء رنات الضوء السكرانة
في مطر المساء
الدهاليز تُحكم عتمتها
لكن الأصوات ما زالت ترتجف
في برد الطرقات
أغمض عيني
لأمعن الإنصات
لصفير الريح البعيدة
وهي تدفع عجلاتها فوق الإسفلت
أو تكنس شعر الأشجار.
المدينة برمتها تستحم
في الأغبرة والأمواه
قلبي يتطوح بين الأسوار
وعيناي ثابتتان خلف أجفانهما
على أمل أن يطرق الباب
كائن ما
أن يرن الهاتف
أو أن يصيح
منبه البريد الإلكتروني
عيناي مغمضتان
وأظنني سأنام
قبل أن يتذكرني أحد.
