Khaty



Khaty is a poem composed of 40 stanzas. Sometimes, we feel too much love within us that there is nothing we can do but write a poem to the eternal muse; otherwise, we would burn. Khaty is one of such poems. It is a poem that the author felt compelled to write, as inspired by his muse, and for his muse – Khaty.

Khaty XIX

I love you
And in our love house
With many rooms
I carried you from couch to couch
We painted rainbows on our skin
As you planted a heavy kiss on my mouth
And now each breath enters and leaves my body
Tainted with the flower from your lips
That red flower
Reminding me
To be kissed again

Khaty XXIII

I love you
And to understand how or how much
Is like a sea trying to fathom the rain
For the rain falls
In numbers we do not know
Yet it touches the sea
Like my heart
I fall
And you catch me
And I realize that I am not a rain
But is now a sea
A part of your sea
To evaporate
All over again
