Apple-Eye - Poem by Shireen Ramadan

The apple-eye in core ov sinful
The crap ov external worlds in me
Lingering on a planet ov walking
Free me from the eye
Vulnerable......
Shackled with their presence
Extinction & delusion
Drinking my downfall in abyss
Wounds ov a world we live in
Ashes, blood perfumes in my veins
The apple-eye is watching
Spreading black disease ov sinful
I vomit the earth ov mankind
Drowned in sewage ov sins & hair
Flees in blood ov male intimate
I'm eyeless & facial paralysis
I'm the end of wholeness
Vulnerable in ashes
Watching sins, beggars & needy
Lies, all lies.....

    Your poetry is very intense and hard-hitting. Sometimes difficult to read, but interesting. (Report)Reply

    Difficult poem, lots of pain.
    You write with an interesting style.
    Apple-eye was a good title for this type of poem,
    with its connotations of serpent and evil.

    if this a portrayal of today's Egypt...which i suspect it is.....
    it is indeed disturbing and captured in intimate nauseous detail....

    sadly i also feel...you guys haven't seen the end of it just yet....the old ossified and entrenched guard isn't going to be easy to get rid of....
    very touching and insightful lines....it was nice to read an insider perspective..

    blessings
