TAGHRID BOUMERHI and her poems


From the door of temptation,
To drop the air from the lungs of features
And to embody an image that does not resemble me.

I had to rewind the seconds to count the number of dark nights…!

And in a moment of exchange with visions,
Dreams merged with the wine of sin,
And the suspended voice was silenced by a priest’s spell.

And because the questions are afflicted with anxiety,
I almost disappeared in fits of ignorance,
Exchanging the reasonable for the unreasonable,
And in order not to hang my imagination on a whim,
I scattered the ant trails of scraps of paper,
And dozed off when dawn surprised.

So how could the waft of the night forsake half a face,
And I can hardly imagine myself crying naked,
Without guilt.



I am here…
And no echo breaks the vast gates
And your voice…!
A prophetic coincidence
Trips over the wilderness of my soul beyond the lung of dreams.

And because the holes of time are drowsy
I stole a glance at the face of a cloud
From the proximity of a wound and a blind memory.

So salt seeped from a tear of insomnia
And cries rose from the clay of suspicion.

I thought I was incapable of embodying my foolish arguments
As I made a narrow place for them with fake names.

And here, on ruins upon ruins
The transparency of the soul groans
In the custody of the train..!

And here… your voice
Rubbing against mine in the furrows of longing
Moistening the thirst of longing
Between anticipation and the shirt of patience..!
