arabic poetry is so beautifully yet painfully romantic, i mean “they asked “do you love her to death?” i said “speak of her over my grave and watch how she brings me back to life" and “because my love for you is higher than words, i've decided to fall silent" and "it is not enough to say love in Arabic, you must say 'be the thing that buries me'" could have got jane austen crying and shaking

في القطار تبادلنا المقاعد ، كنتِ تريدين النافذة وكنتُ أريد أن أطل عليكِ
- سراج الدين الورفلي
On the train we swapped seats, you wanted the window and I wanted to look at you.

Don’t promise things you will not do, for some hearts build lives based on your promises.
لا تقطعو وعودا لستم بأهل لها، فبعض القلوب تبني على وعودكم حياة

في الحنين، لا فرق بين يوم أو عام أو عقد أو عمر، فحجم الاشتياق يفوق فكرة الزمن.
In nostalgia, there is no difference between a day, a year, a decade, or a lifetime, because the amount of longing is beyond the idea of time.
- Gibran Khalil Gibran

You have a lot in common with the moon; its light and its beauty, and its distance from me.

To someone,
I can't forget you, not because I have a strong memory, but because I have a heart that never denies those who settled in it once.
إلى أحدهُم .. لا أستطيع نسيانك ليس لِـ أني أملُك ذاكرة قوية ، بل لِ أني أملُك قلباً لا يُنكر من أستوطنهُ يوماً
— Mahmoud Darwish
