Gaza - Poem by Medea Kali

Tell Gaza I love her
Though I cannot be with her
And my tears fall; shameful streams,
As I watch shadows engulf her beauty
Darkness hides her light
Her mothers weep and her children die

God in heaven, I cried! I said you are not there
To guard my love from the viciousness
Of those who dwell in her heart
And those filled with envy from us…
They covet our love for her
Why do they want to be with her?

I long for the touch, the smell of Gaza
I feel it, I breathe it
And I sing her songs of love and imagine myself in her
And they want to take her from me…
The one who's had her image engraved in heart
She knows me, she embraced me and she feels love as I to her

God is our savior; believe love, because my faith is shaken now
I can no longer have the strength you have
I shy away from you, I see them ravishing
Tarnishing you, and you endure.
Love is always heartbreak, we both know
They all know I love you and someday I will be with you.

    Gaza must be love endured as well as love denied. Great poem, both very moving and excellant! Gave it a ten here. God bless all poets-MJG. (Report)Reply
