"Mes de los Muertos"

The Nights Are Long

By Ahmad Al-Khatat

The Nights Are Long

Dreaming of you explains
why the nights are long with
more longing
I still have your scent on
my arms
Even though I let you slip far away

I want you to stop me
from sinning
Take me away from all of
those sins
let me be closer to your
shiny faith
People die like the
branches in fall

You spread love over my
And I turned love to a cloudy heart
You have always believed in a good
love, yet none of us said

I broke my heart by the
full moon
I throw all of the pieces
up to the blue sky, before they start
to bleed
Now they are the steps
to heaven
