When a Person Falls in Love

When a person falls in love,
she expresses it in one of two ways.
Either she shouts it from the rooftops,
so that all the world will share in her joy,
or she holds it like a secret in her heart
admiring it like stolen jewelry when no one else is around.

Najat does not shout his love from the rooftops,
For that is the way one ends up in prison.
Instead, he pretends his love is a secret,
But he whispers about it to everyone.
