Cities of sadness

Love for you has led me to try the medicines of apothecaries,
To knock on the doors of fortune-tellers,
To leave home and comb the pavements,
To hunt for your face in the rain and in the headlights of cars.
Love for you has taken me into cities of sadness
Which I had never entered before.

--- by the contemporary Syrian poet Nizar al-Qabbani
