Fatima Nusairat

(Jordan)

I want to go


I want to go
Above the earth
No wind presses me
No sand cuts my eyes
I want to go
Like a bevy of birds
Like clouds
No waves calm me
Nor the night

I want to go
No rain of joy
Rained
Nor did youth return
Nothing stays but dust
The wind playing in the
Remaining dust
The remains of a glimmer
Light
From eyes tumbles
And... I do not know
The survival that waits for me
In fancy
Or loss

I want to go
With pain
In my chest
So, neither the horizon
If I run dies in grief
On the road
Nor...the House not holding me back
Nor the land

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
