By Ahmad Al-Khatat


I wish I had more mistakes than sins
I want to have my brain cells fully damaged
as the friend I always trusted before is
now a dark cloud in my miserable season

Love is blind more than love is happiness
as it is an expensive prayer for me 
even my siblings are deaf to hear the beats
of my broken heart from the liquor I drink

Grains of salt are above the roof of my mouth
meanwhile, I never swam in a salty ocean 
nor; added salt on my tasteless plates of food 
I just lick salt off my hand after I drink a few shots

I respect more faces then they deserve 
only death is the path to end my anxieties 
dark poems won’t solve anything about life 
those tears will later fall along with ruby blood
