meaning Hi, would you please tell me what does سکر mean in this poem: حَبَستُ بِجَفْنَىَّ المَدامِعَ لا تَجرِي فَلَمّا طَغَى الماءُ استَطالَ عَلَى‏ السِّكْرِ From the poem,it seems it means something like dam, right ? Thanks

السكر هو ما يسد به السد او الجدار الذي يحبس ماء السد. والشاعر هنا يقصد ان دموعة تجاوزت باب سد و طالت فوقه جراء حزنه.. As you mentioned it means the gate of the dam. His tears sunk that gate.
