By Ahmad Al-khatat

I close

my eyes

when I

died in

your

arrival

more

than twice

waiting

for the

sunshine

to taste

one

hard candy

A few

bitter sips

melting &

dripping

rare honey

my mind

takes me

to the other

side of

silence

where

a lips

kiss is

a thicker

bite on the

tongue

and

a woman’s

body

is a

fine

Art

of grace.
