An Eye, An Island, And One Survived Poem - Poem by Atef Ayadi

The sunlight,
An unyielding blue sky,
The drowsiness of saltiness of the sea,
My skin, my lips, and guts in a bottle of water.

The wild darkness of the night,
The cold thorny hair pushing against my skin,
The Northern light, and
A fainted form of ice

Arouse me
And take my life.

Her eye is
Still and island
That catches both
Me and The sea.
