By Ahmad Al-khatat

What’s inside my heart

is unraveled sorrows

between regrets

leaves from the trees of my honesty

to the people I love the most

What’s inside my heart

are arteries living on my ache’s

bad habits that could be a cure

with eyes weeping every day

I have no choice to stay healthy

What’s inside my heart

is dead love birds in cages and

drowned sailors in an unsinkable boat

which explains why I wear glasses

to enjoy my life in the colour of the clouds

What’s inside my heart

is a miserable river that floods in

my burning dreams in my hopeless

life meanwhile, the other side is still a

rock, paper, scissors memory
