Mohammed Hassan (Piracy In The Mediterranean)

(3/3/1990 / Al Iskandarī yah)

A Homeless Memory

in every house we cross by
many memories hanged on the walls
no words to describe it
in my head they're non-stop hanging

I walked on a dark road
couldn't bear that rainy night
in the memory of the hollow as me
where all of the homeless like me

as people hiding from
thier ghost of memories
fearing to hunt their souls one day
and lose the only thing they lived for
thinking they will never go away
though they forgot to forget them

in a lonly night I walked unknown road
the silence overwhelmed my soul
yet cloudless by a rusty lamp
ticking giving a bell chime

as i'm awaking myself
from that beautiful dream
thinking it's only a dream not real
all of them are chasing me
from memories lived with me
I heard a voice that asked me

are you responsable of it?
of forbidden tradition

as i'm awaking myself
from that beautiful dream
thinking it's only a dream not real
all of them are chasing me
from memories lived with me
in a world of forgetting moments

    that's very beautiful..actually i'm in a bad mood but i have let the mood sit aside so i can express my opinion in a good way....'memories are hanged on the walls' this is a wonderful metaphor..i'm like yoonoos i liked the last stanza it was repeated two times and i think that's because you want the reader to focus on it or (ta2keed) .it's also musical..this poem is a good memory :) know, i hope i can see you one day.i want to talk to you because you seem very (3a2el) .
