Silent Tears - Poem by MOHAMMAD SKATI

I WALK IN MY REALM IN THE MORNING, WITHOUT FEET. AND I CROSS INTO MY INNER SOUL WITHOUT A BRIDGE. A PICNIC IN MY MIND IS BUT A PERMANENT IMAGE INTO A DEEPER WORLD WHERE NO TEARS ON MY FACE. I LOOK AT MY FACE IN THE MIRROR TO SEE IF THERE ARE ANY TEARS! I WALK IN MY REALM, IN THE MORNING, WITHOUT FEET. WHAT'S THE USE OF MY FEET? IN MY REALM, I DON'T NEED FEET OR TEARS. ALL I NEED IS A STAR TO REST ON AND SOMETIMES TO FLY. I TOLD: I DON'T NEED FEET OR TEARS BECAUSE ON A STAR YOU DON'T FEET TO WALK OR TO CRY. IT'S ALL LIKE A DREAM, BUT IT'S NOT A DREAM. MY FEET ARE NO MORE HELPFUL AND I DON'T TO WALK I NEED TO TAKE SOME REST. I DON'T MY EYES TO SHED TEARS. I CAN'T CRY ANY MORE, BUT MY TEARS ARE LIKE THOSE OF THE CROCODILE. DO YOU NEED FEET TO WALK ON THE MOON? OR DO YOU NEED TEARS? STOP WALKING AND HAVE NO MORE TEARS! ONLY SILENT TEARS HAPPEN ON THE MOON OR A SILENT PICTURE LIKE THAT OF MINE. TEARS ARE TOO MUCH FOR ME. I AM TIRED AND TOILED OF BEING LONELY. I USED MY FEET TOO MUCH. THEY NEED TO TAKE SOME TEARS. MY TEARS ARE OFTEN SILENT AND TRICKY. I FEEL WHEN I CRY IT'S LIKE A CROCODILE DOES. I GOT TIRED WITH MY TEARS. SILENT TEARS LOOK LIKE THOSE OF THE CROCODILE'S. BUT, WHAT SHALL I DO TO PREVENT MY EYES FROM SHEDDING TEARS? I NEED TO FREEZE THESE TEARS. IT'S JUST A HABIT OF HAVING TEARS EVEN WHEN WATCHING A MOVIE OR A SAD OCCASION MY EYES START. SILENT TEARS ARE THE BEST, BUT IT'S NOT MY CHOICE.
