‘I Saw Her Face’ by Ahmed Nader Gretly

6:00 p.m

Friday, 2nd


and behold I saw fear

rolling down the street underneath

my open window in ear-piercing silence

like a thick dark cloud of poisonous gas

hovering without a definite shape

expanding and darkly defusing

I felt like a perishable object

floating throughout despair

shivering uncontrollably in terror

and amidst this horrific madness

I saw her beautifully angelic face

and it brought me peace

and comfortable
