Brides of my land


Brides of my land Cover Image

If your bleeding wounds are left to me,

 

I should kiss them every time

 

Until they heal all of you

 

And bruise all of me,

 

I would put them close to my heart forever,

 

The blood should be the henna of my hands.

 

 

 

If fragments of your memories remain,

 

I should pick them one by one

 

And let them pierce and bleed my fingers,

 

I should ornament them as treasures,

 

I should be a bride to the remnants of us.

 

 

 

If your shadows are left behind,

 

I should dewel in this safe haven forever 

 

Those blacks you would leave behind

 

are colours of my love,

 

I shall be a bride in this bridal hue.

 

 

 

I should be a bride,

 

Carrying these relics of wishes

 

To the grave of mine,

 

With whatever remains of you,

 

In this empty bosom of mine.
