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


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
