Again! - Poem by Atef Ayadi

What do you want
Without extras,
Without looking at me,
Or for me,
Without statement, or judgment;


Are you under the surface
or over,
looking at yourself,
Or with a calm open body
Floating underneath?

Are you hiding beneath your skin
Or flying without it?

What you want
''What I really want? ''
With or without fear?

What do you want
in few mute or colored words
or many screams of one beautiful word?

What do you want
from me, with or without the world?

What you want
Without explaining
Without justifying
Or mutilating your feeling?

What you want
''What a flower wants? ''
''What a tree wants? ''
''What a bird wants? ''
''What a river wants from the sky? ' '
