SAND STORM

SAND STORM

written by: Ibrahim “dreezy” Idris

 

I’ll write you memoir of horror
Then bury it in a dusty haze
As I recount my lifetime as untraceable of its identity
A soul that lost profanity across the dunes of the tropics
Was me, was never me.

I’ll write you of a haven that was a route to paradise
A compassed path engraved at the zenith of the suns reflected shadows
Binding me in exhausted streams of brutal winds

You may find my pen there
As my ink was a spine of the nearest cactus
Disintegrating my mind in twirls of plastics and rusted metals
The Mediterranean was where I would have drew lines of hope
Not in the middle of a sand storm that turned me divine
