Shrouded - Poem by Mohamed Eid

A shroud is wrapped around a rose

Forsaken beauty is concealed

These animal arms and monkey head

Give no chance for nothing but dreams

Crippled dreams; buried alive

Her face is a lantern in their graveyard

They see the light and fly away

To settle on the land of chances

Where they're strangled everyday
