Beirut

By Namal Siddiqui

I walk on your cobbled streets
searching for a sanctuary within my soul

I walk under your black sky
high like the street lights hanging above my head

Beirut

You are the crafty and eloquent lover
who sins and seeks absolution together

Beirut

I left my heart on your streets
for a stampede of humans to crush it.
Pain after all is the only real thing.
