You who contained the roses of the gradens in your cheeks
and simulated a bamboo rod in your figure
if you wished to kill me then you are in charge
who will discuss a master on his slave
Put down the sword you have just unleashed
Your eyes are sharper than its edge

Feiruz is wonderful, ain't she. By the way, Arab love poetry is not all about death. Although, Bamout 3aleih, or I die for him/her, is the most used way of describing love, but still usually it is largely peaceful and romantic.

Ah, I wanted to ask, did you guys notice that the woman in an extramarital affair and the woman in a certain 'lifestyle' share the same title, mistress. A coincidence? or maybe not :)
