Introduction
Oh green bird is 3
My lover asks me 5
When I fell in love 7
You still ask me about the day of my birth 9
Oh, my love 11
All words 13
I hadn't told them about you 15
I hate to love like other people 17
Your love 19
From the moment you loved me 21
When I am in love (No. 1) 23
When I am in love (No. 2) 25
I love you when you cry 27
I don't know my birthday 29
Your eyes are like a rainy night 31
I wrote the name of the one I loved 33
Oh traveller 35
Our love 37
Don't worry 39
When I travel into your eyes 41
Like a fish 43
I am the prophet of love 45
Undress yourself 47
I have changed so much 49
Because my love for you 51
I want to write different words for you 53
Take all the books 55
I want to make you a unique alphabet 57
That March morning when you came walking toward me 59
That March morning when you visited me 61
When you took off your spring coat 63
When I told you 65
When I said 67
When I wrote your name 69
When God bestowed women on men 71
After God introduced you to me 73
When I received my reward 75
I was never a king 77
You erase history 79
I taught the children of the world 81
Pure like a necklace of jasmine 83
I love you 85
Your love took me 87
I wear you 89
I decided 91
My kingdom of little things 93
Out of my desire 95
I taught you the names of the trees 97
But you became tired of the horse of freedom 99
The two years 101
When I am with you 103
I'm not a teacher 105
Light is more important than the lantern 107
In the summer 109
Every time I kiss you 111
My love runs to you 113
Every man 115
Stay out of my sight 117
When rain fell on both of us 119
I hope one day 121
When you visit me 123
Every time you travelled 125
Did you ever think 127
The day I met you 129
Close all my books 131
Yesterday I thought 133
Please 135
Why do you ask me to write you 137
Pull out the dagger buried in my side 139
To search for roads where 141
From the airplane 143
Before I entered the cities of your mouth 145
It is all over 147
What would your femininity say about me 149
When you accompany me 151
When you danced with me that night 153
When you find a man 155
I knew 157
Your departure is not a tragedy 159
While Rome burned: you burned 161
Do you have a solution 163
I am bored with travelling 165
Drink your coffee 167
About this amazing butterfly 169
It is not important 171
I am accused of being like Shahrayar 173
Nobody, my love 175
I am not apologizing to anyone 177
For hoarding perfumes, rings, and combs 179
I want to say 181
Why do you telephone, my lady? 183
The telephone stretched between us 185
Stop this torture, my lady 187
You wear hippie clothes 189
When love attacks you 191
Be assured, my lady 193
It is not my intention 195
This is my last letter 197
This is the last letter of madness 199
How miserable you are, my lady 201
About sea love 203
I learn by reading your body 205
Oh my love 207
What kind of a nation is this 209
You amaze me 211
I want you to teach me the first knowledge 213
To my love on New Year's Eve 215
Will you allow me to take a holiday? 217
Time travels with you when you leave 219
And that the stars 221
I wandered 223
Oh woman who roots in my skin like a forest 225
Love during house arrest 227
I ask for your permission to leave (No. 1) 229
I ask for your permission to leave (No. 2) 231
I want to rip up 233
I want to shoot 235
Women, the knowledge of God 237
We reached the point 239
It is up to you to love me 241
I will tell you: I love you 243
The talk of her hands 247
I am afraid 249
Who is the prettiest? 251
I conquer the universe with words 253
I curl up 255
