"فتى فتن في فتاة فتاه"
"فتى فتن في فتاة فتاه"

Lord forgive me for I have sinned…

Like a bird beating against the cold wires of a cage; trapped behind the frozen bones that bend and curve into these young ribs, my old heart hums melodic poetry inscribed in the back of my eyelids; metaphors that rhyme with a name that is yours, form overrated similes that underrate the magnificence of your design.

All I ever wanted was to make you mine. All I ever wanted was to make you mine.

Tonight I’ll rattle these bones in bags of skin, dance to melodies that sing stories of where we’ve been. I loved you in the name of god but since then, you and I have met in sin. See I loved you in the name of god but since then, you and I have met in sin.

I loved you in the name of God رب العالمين

(اغفر لي و ارحمني يا ارحم الراحمين)

I loved you in the name of God

but since then, you and I have met in sin.

I loved you in the name of God…
