The pangs of anxiety dwell upon
The thorns of the beating heart
That utters the serendipity of the illogical mind.
Anxious in a Middle East region
With nothing to do
Numb about the future life
That lies motionless like a serpent,
Ready to carry the prey
As if it’s the fate known
To the married woman
Lying lifeless in the clutches of her present life.
