    The Ruins by Ibrahim Nagi

    My heart, don't ask where the love has gone
    It was a citadel of my imagination that has collapsed
    Water me and let me drink of its ruins
    And tell the story on my behalf as long as the tears flow
    Tell how that love became past news
    And became a matter of the subject of pain
    I haven't forgotten you
    And you seduced me with a sweetly-calling and tender tongue
    And a hand extending towards me like a hand stretched out through the waves to a drowning person
    And a light searching for a wanderer
    But where is that light in your eyes?
    My darling, I visited your nest one day as a bird of desire singing my pain
    You've become self-important, spoiled and capricious
    And you inflict harm like a powerful tyrant
    And my longing for you cauterized my ribs (soul or insides)
    And the moments were embers in my blood
    Give me my freedom, release my hands
    Indeed, I've given you yours and did not try to retain anything
    Ah, your chains have bloodied my wrists
    Why are they still there when I no longer affect you
    Why do I keep promises that you do not honor?
    I've had it with this prison now that the world is mine
    He is far away, my enchanting love
    Full of pride, majesty and delicacy
    Sure-footed walking like a king with oppressive beauty and rapacious glory
    Redolent of charm like the breeze of the valleys
    Pleasant to experience like the night's dreams
    I've lost forever the charm of your company that radiated brilliantly
    I, wandering in love, a bewildered butterfly, approached you
    And between us, desire was a messenger and drinking companion that presented the cup to us
    Had love seen two as intoxicated as us?
    So much hope we had built up around us
    And we walked in the moonlit path, joy skipping along ahead of us
    And we laughed like two children together
    And we ran and raced our shadows
    And we became aware after the euphoria and woke up
    If only we did not awaken
    Wakefulness ruined the dreams of slumber
    The night came and the night became my only friend
    And then the light was an omen of the sunrise and the dawn was towering over like a conflagration
    And then the world was as we know it, with each lover in their own path
    Oh sleepless one who slumbers and remembers the promise when you wake up
    Know that if a wound begins to recover another wound crops up with the memory
    So learn to forget and learn to erase it
    My darling everything is fated
    It is not by our hands that we make our misfortune
    Perhaps one day our fates will cross when our desire to meet is strong enough
    For if one friend denies the other and we meet as strangers
    And if each of us follows his or her own way
    Don't say it was by our own will
    But rather, the will of Allah.

    Against the Wind
    Bob Seger

    Seems like yesterday
    But it was long ago
    Janey was lovely she was the queen of my nights
    There in darkness with the radio playin low
    And the secrets that we shared, mountains that we moved
    Caught like a wildfire out of control
    Til there was nothin left to burn and nothin left to prove
    And I remember what she said to me
    How she swore that it never would end
    I remember how she held me oh so tight
    Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then
    Against the wind
    We were runnin against the wind
    We were young and strong we were runnin against the wind
    And the years rolled slowly past
    And I found myself alone
    Surrounded by strangers I thought were my friends
    Found myself further and further from my home and I
    Guess I lost my way
    There were oh so many roads
    I was livin to run and runnin to live
    Never worried about payin or even how much I owe
    Movin' eight miles a minute and for months at a time
    Breakin all of the rules that would bend
    I began to find myself searchin
    Searchin for shelter again and again
    Against the wind
    Little somethin against the wind
    I found myself seekin shelter against the wind
    Well those drifters days are past me now
    I've got so much more to think about
    Deadlines and commitments
    What to leave in, what to leave out
    Against the wind
    I'm still runnin against the wind
    I'm older now but still runnin against the wind
    Well I'm older now but still runnin against the wind
    Against the wind
    Against the wind
    Still runnin
    Against the wind
    Against the wind
    Against the wind...
