Engraved Wounds

Engraved Wounds

Original painting by CECILE DELIKOURAS

Metaphors in a few verses of Nizar Kabbani were the starting point of this work in which the wounds of the poet are as deep as the hieroglyphs.  

"Increase your passion for me.
My most beautiful fit of madness.
Make me drown, oh my lady,
For the sea calls me.
Make me more dead.
Perhaps as death kills me, I can truly live.
Your love is my map, the world's map no longer matters.
I am the oldest city of sorrow,
And my wounds are deeply engraved as hieroglyphs.”

Nizar Kabbani
