Why does Mekael not smile?
It happened thus after hell was created.
He believes that is where he can end to be?
Who can say. The future is not ours to see.
Then I found a beloved who,
when I slept, stood besides me
One day I decided this;
sleep was not the best thing to do.
Thus I danced all night in doubt
I danced all night with perplexity
Found him to be invalid by morning.
I was beautiful before that
Without the copper nails
Without vain,
Without pain.
a certain face I had
I had it before hell was created.

  1. Aaleen,
    It's a nice poem. I would appreciate if you elaborate a little on the important central idea here.
    Good work---
