"

لا أَحدَ درَسَ خُطُوطَ يدي
إلا واكتشفَ حروفَ اسْمِكِ الأربعهْ
كلُّ شيء يمكنُ تكذيبُهْ
إلاَّ رائحةَ امرأةٍ نُحبُّها
كلُّ شيءٍ يمكنُ إخفاؤُهْ
إلاّ خَطَواتِ امرأةٍ تتحرَّكُ في داخلنا

-

No one has studied the lines of my hand
Without discovering the four letters of your name
Everything can be denied
But the scent of a woman that we love
Everything can be hidden
But the steps of a woman moving inside of us.

"
— Nizar Qabbani, A woman walking inside of me. (via inderacinable)
