Fire in my heart, fire in my soul …
I can’t bring it down, I can’t control!
I feel as if you’ve poured gasoline
to exacerbate to make it burn more.
I am burning, burning like a car
that explodes in the middle of war.
I don’t really know the exact reason …
Reasons are too many, I can’t pick just one!

But here is one: Listen up you bull;
I hate seeing your face hanging on my wall!
You abused her, you enjoyed the assault;
you acted superman treating her like shit!
Listen to me, hey, Mr. Coward;
what goes around, it does come around!
You will one day, you will regret it
when life forces you to clean someone’s dirt!
I don’t want to hate, but I despise you;
I heard her cries, cries because of you!

Life is crazy, crazy like a fool …
and am nothing, but its willing tool.
This is for her, I have written it …
my heart cries, cries day and night.
I feel pain, a pain in my heart …
Too much cruelty, I just don’t get it.
There is so much, so much suffering …
Life is ugly, and depressing.
But I do see a colored flower …
I want to open my closed door.


For some reason this song was stuck in my head, and I just started scribbling after its beat … been a while since I scribbled something that looks like a poem.

  1. Wonderfully intense poem, Elyas…and for a good reason. I cannot imagine anyone who could watch that video and NOT be moved or enraged by it.

    Your poem speaks for many of us. These words could ignite a campaign to rid the world of these “cowards”:

    “Fire in my heart, fire in my soul…”

  2. that’s a beautiful poem Elyas.
    and very strong emotions about that loathful person. he deserves to be hated by everyone and he deserves to be punished for what he did.

    I am glad your poetic self is back.
    and that’s one great song :D

    1. awww mon ami,
      that’s such a beautiful sentiment. to not hate him but his actions.
      to forgive and forget, to let fate play its hand on his bad deeds.
      you are just too nice … but that’s a lovely spirit you have going.
      hold on to it :)

      Nonetheless I hate him, I hate every single human being like him.
      sorry to say this. but that’s how I feel.
      maybe I am wrong.
      But God gave me a heart of stone, when it comes to things like that ;)

    2. Thank you Amira! Hate is such a strong word, you know, the kind of word I don’t want to use. But when you see people doing horrible things to other helpless people just because they can, they force you to loath them with passion! I dont want to hate this guy, but I hate his action; however, his actions reflect who he is as a person, so it’s inevitable that I feel hatred when I see him abusing her. I believe that it’s better to forgive and not forget, hence, why I was compelled to write down my feelings. There is no point in hating a hater; it would not make me any different. Let his deeds follow him!

  3. Your concern for those who suffer has always amazed me. We come across many who fight and get agitated for their own rights, but here I see someone upset for the sake of someone else. Great expressions, Elyas!
