Poetry and Art by MUBEEN KHISHANY

The day that I will die in

What is the day on the calendar?
it is the day of my death
and the day that repeats every day
and I die in
What did the world trade me for to bear all this pain?
Sadness is my second name and my portion from the treasure of feeling,
I have been meant to make the books of history fattest with pain,
And I bury myself so that the vita reproduced. My rising from bed is a resurrection,
I walk to my end and my shadow precedes me,
Is there any sun could be ashamed of this clarity?
remember me if the wind moved a branch and an innocent bird shrieked.
I will need you to remember me.
He's been asked about me the empty of gardens, but he does not answer!
I was the luminous flower of the gardens
But a left hand extinguished me.
Though I realize that every dawn carries its betrayal
But I am anxious to wake up.
It's something that prevents me from being silent
With every inhale, I feel a dagger piercing my chest.
These daggers I k now...It's
my questions...and my regrets
And my doubts...
But why is my blood strange!
The image of my fear has changed
and the astonishment of the unknown is over,
so that I've been afraid from my knowledge,
walking to my death like someone who fills right emptiness
and the same news are carried by all directions:
carry the same news:
wherever you turn your face away, your death will be Iraqi.
And so I sow my dream in the wasteland And I know that my name is synonymous with getting lost in the crows party,
And that my life that was taken form me was not life,
It was a deferred death
And a date with another nil,
I do not hear the call of my heart
When he suffocated by a mound of the corpses of my brothers.
It's all about losing my pulse
and I've lost it
I achieved the perfection and joy of death.
I have been betrayed...
And my killer's name grows on the street signs. Above art in slideshow by Mubeen Khishany Flight of the creature It is not the lightness of a being that makes it fly
But his dreams...
when they traverse the plot of predation
jauntily like a prey.
getting the nature Impressed
When she opens her amazement eyes;
What makes the glimpse time longer?
And a third party drowns in sigh
On the emptiness of his vases and the atrophy of his imagination,
He is busy translating synonyms of disappointment.
Whenever the creature acknowledges the effort of the idea
tears of joy shed
like a Prodigal son of grief. Disappointment

I did not find my paradise among your promises
After I crossed your traps planted for my path.
Your name was heavy on my neck
For his sake, my joys have changed with an uncontrollable fear
And my moments became boilerplates with the evaporation of happiness
and compressed in her tails the pain.
Oh, the disappointment of a knife in dead meat!
I could not find in your eyes the color of my bones,
Lightly faded with lost lineage
And my biography disappeared like secret waters
so my seed dried up from your fire kindled I mixtures
And I kept saying the names of Ash.
Your absence wounds my senses,
The hope of getting you is broken
Like a moon in the river's flow,
so my joy is petrified
and the illusion remains drinking distances from my blood. Mubeen Khishany is an Iraqi poet and artist, born in 1998, graduated at the Faculty of Engineering.
