  • Arabic recitation of the first couplets from Nizar Qabbani’s “Damascene Poem”
  • ??? ?????.. ???? ?????? ????????
  • ???? ?????... ?????? ??????? ??????
  • Verse 1:
  • This is Damascus
  • & this is a glass of spirit (comfort)
  • i love - but im aware of the fact that
  • certain kinds of love
  • can slaughter you in their wrath
  • I'm a Damascene being dissect me into halves
  • & have not but grapes & apples fall in your path
  • open my veins with scalpels
  • hear ancestral chants
  • if heart - transplants can
  • cure some of the passionate
  • why does mine stay torn in half then?
  • minarets cryin tears of absence
  • and like trees their souls speak
  • years have passed them
  • (you can hear them askin)
  • for civil rights to live amongst
  • tiers of jasmine
  • as house cats take naps - relaxin
  • "Es la cosa mas triste de este mundo
  • Y asÌ me siento yo por ti solo por ti"
  • (and this is how i feel for you)
  • Chorus:
  • Arabic recitation of the first couplets from Nizar Qabbani’s “Damascene Poem”
  • ??? ?????.. ???? ?????? ????????
  • ???? ?????... ?????? ??????? ??????
  • Verse 2:
  • coffee grinders cracklin
  • childhood reminders - back when
  • how can i forget?
  • when my reaction...
  • to cardemom's strong fragrance
  • yet & still finds attraction
  • as proud fathers wait
  • for a sweet daughter's face
  • im askin...
  • if my roots - heart - & language are here
  • how am i supposed to make myself
  • any more clear?
  • is clarification necessary
  • with love so dear?
  • (so much so that there was no fear...)
  • how many damascene bracelets were
  • sold for this poetry here?
  • apologizin to the willow
  • wonderin' if my little siblings can hear
  • my parts been scattered across coasts for years
  • lanterns on horizons (floatin...
  • saddened eyes had lost their hopes to see her...)
  • "Es la cosa mas triste de este mundo
  • Y asÌ me siento yo por ti solo por ti"
  • (and this is how i feel for you)
  • Chorus:
  • Arabic recitation of the first couplets from Nizar Qabbani’s “Damascene Poem”
  • ??? ?????.. ???? ?????? ????????
  • ???? ?????... ?????? ??????? ??????
  • Verse 3:
  • tossed around in shoreless oceans
  • only to be hunted down by devils & demonic ghosts
  • i battle garbage rap with prose & (rapid) flows
  • thats apropos until nawar is open to em
  • (thats fa sho!)
  • identity of Arabness resemblin a widow though
  • is there no festivus for the rest of us history books can show?
  • what will remain of poetry's originality if so
  • many a brown-nosing liar gets to have complete control?
  • how we gonna ever write a verse to spit
  • when killers still approach?
  • i bore the burden of my words upon my back until i grieved...
  • what shall remain of poetry when it is finally relieved?
  • (the saddest thing in this world - my lady's - is knowin that we
  • were meant to be from the very start but that we'll never be...)
  • "Es la cosa mas triste de este mundo
  • Y asÌ me siento yo por ti solo por ti"
  • (& this is how i feel for you)
  • Chorus:
  • Arabic recitation of the first couplets from Nizar Qabbani’s “Damascene Poem”
  • ??? ?????.. ???? ?????? ????????
  • ???? ?????... ?????? ??????? ??????
