It has been many years since I abandoned you, my love!
And now, we are separated by oceans and eternities
I left you because I wanted you but could not afford you
I ran and ran trying to be better
So that one day I can be ready for you.
I found myself like a race horse running in a track
Surrounded by cheering crowds
From race to race, I lost count but I also lost the target
Every time I finish a race I grow further away from you
And you become out of my reach
When I left I told you wait for me
but I didn’t realize that by leaving you
I was throwing you in the laps of the watchful monsters
They kidnapped and raped you virgin beauty
And we became further apart like never before
You are, now, like a prostitute in their bars but I can’t blame you
I blame myself
I stopped by your window but I didn’t recognize you
We were both strangers
Damascus, my love, where are you?
I miss the memories and the time I spent on your roads and alleys
But we are moving in opposite ways
I am still running and when I have the chance to look back
I see the monsters dragging you in the horizon far faraway
Time cannot bring back the memories
It can only bring us further apart!
