መኖር ባይኖር (Had I not existed…)


መኖር ባይኖር
አልመኝም ነበር
የሷን ጠይም ከንፈር
እሷና እኔም
አንገናኝ ነበር
አዎን መኖር ባይኖር
ሰላም አገኝ ነበር
ከዚያች የልብ ካንሰር!

***

Had I not existed,
I wouldn’t have wished
her soft brown lips;
we would have never met
to begin with.
Yes, had I not existed,
I would have had peace
from her, the cancer
of my heart,
la douleur exquise.

  1. your local script looks very elegant and yet very playful – similar to an exquisite dance 🙂

    and about the words the lines the meaning of it – just so intense 😀
    nice “the exquisite pain” …
