Gas Chamber By Ahmad Al-Khatat


My life lately seems like a gas chamber,
Everything appears in different colours nowadays
My name is no longer important since I’ve got
A number and soon I will have a legal price tag

I thought the snow would cover the cruelty of blood suckers
Yet, I saw a broken cage in spring with blood and
Feathers of the love birds above the winter rain
With no tweets to welcome the depressed autumn

The sun shines at midnight and it looks as if the
City is on fire, with flames around my glowing path
So many times, and nobody is bright to reveal the
Sun before death starts collecting my soul

I have been blinded as I wish to go back to
The days where my sight always smiled and never
Cried for watching my old pictures of memories
With tears falling in silence of my depression
