You betrayed the one who trusted you
You are not the first one who betrayed trust
Because of my flirting, women call me a devil
But they love me when I am a devil
Jareer (An Arab Poet 648--728)

Another chance[1]
Alaaddin Al-Dhahir
Give love a chance
Thus goes the song
Man always needs another chance
Give yourself a chance
Give us together another chance
As we move along
Love isn’t optional
Or at all rational, nor is it fractional
But something whole and wholesome
To hold the heart, the soul ransom
And a jump into the unknown
To those with or without a backbone
I need you more than the air I breathe
Atop the summits of the Alps, the Rockies
Or beneath
Bequeath your heart, bequeath
Don’t make me a Harlequin
Plagued with his own follies
I miss you on the shores of Italy
And southern France
While riding a car, sitting in a train
Or dreaming on a flying plane
I love you, I love you
Whether I am rational or insane
I feel jealous of the air around your body
I wish to be your underwear
The tight pants on your thighs
The T-shirt that covers your chest
And the bra rightly fixed to your breast
Don’t you worry, small is beautiful
We all live once
To become in the end a diet
To be eaten by earth worms
Take another chance on love
To tame emotions too warm too wild
Life without love is a footless child
Beguile for a short while
Beguiling is a game not a lifestyle
Give love another chance
And another chance
And another chance
Give love always another chance
