My poem “New Stories” has been published in the Winter 2018-2019 issue of Poetry Bay, an online literary magazine edited by the renowned poet George Wallace

New Stories

For you,
I write
a path
with no end.

I write
a branch
from the tree
inside me.

I write
all that is hidden
in simmering blood
for you
(all I want to tell you
but can’t).

I write
the silence
hanging in the distance
between us.

For you,
I write new stories
not with words
but with my finger
on your heart.


Poem originally written in Maltese, translated by Elizabeth Grech and edited by Tawfiq Haddad.
