Her Square of Fear

A hypnotist
softly speaks.

Heavy eyes lids,
Butterflies behind her eyes,
Slow heart beats,
Soft breaths,
Memories…

She was in a Riot.
It seemed to be intense.
A Revolution has started,
And everything was a mess.
In The streets of Egypt,
The Smell of tear gas 
Was suffocating,
Tears were shed,
Eyes were blurred.
She found herself at last 
In Tahrir square,
Full of anger,
Full of fear,
And death was everywhere.
She now remembers why
She has been afraid to leave the house
For more than a whole month.
She has been afraid to watch the news,
Or even the political shows.
She remembered how many people lost their eyes,
And how loud she heard their cries.
She suddenly screamed,
and was wide awake.

A hypnotist 
A silent room
Reality…

    Nice to see a new free verse writer. I was in Egypt in Cairo 2 weeks before the revolution, foolish old woman me..I did enjoy the trip and the people I met when I was alone without the group. Do stay safe! Light & Love {I have a group of poems from the trip if you'd like to read them]

    I love the depths in your writing Omneya! You Pen the words and I'm transported to an alternate universe. I love how you've used the hypnotist to ensure the woman relates her tale and leaves it behind her when she's back from the brink - hence starting the healing process. Very well done!
