Living dead
In response to photos by Reza Mazaheri, "Eyes of Shohada"

I looked into the eyes of these martyrs and I paused for a moment ...
A moment that lasted as long as history itself ...
In that moment everything stopped for me ...
I forget who I am ...
What I want ...
Where on this vast universe I live
I forget all my needs ...
All my complaints ...
Everything that is making me cry ...
Everything that is making me laugh ...
I forget anyone that exists in my life ...
And that moment lasted forever ...
It penetrates into my soul ...
I felt an ache in my heart ...
An old wound opened up ...
And I remembered
How so sadly I remembered
The day that the sky cried

I saw these pictures and I paused for a moment
I know I am dead
And they are the ones who are alive ...
