According to Ontology, the work of art is an existing one. However, it is an objectified spiritual being. In this respect, every work of art shows a heterogeneous structure. The heterogeneous structure consists of real and irreal layers. It is Nicolai Hartmann and Roman Ingarden subject the work of art to such a model analysis. In Art Ontology book by İsmail Tunalı, he made a synthesis of methods of Hartmann and Ingarden. The real layer consists of a single layer of sound. The irreal layer consists of four elements such as the meaning layer, the object layer, the character layer and the fate layer. In this article, Asaf Hâlet Çelebi's poem “İbrâhîm” was analyzed according to ontological critique theory. It is based on Tunalı's methodology for that. The repetition of sound layer of the poem shows harmony occurred by means of word assonance and alliteration. The words used in poetry in the meaning layer and the references made by these words reveal a cultural poem. The object layer points to holy books and Sufism. In the character layer there are the prophet Ibrahim, Buhtunnasar and the poetic self. The characters reveal the theme in the fate layer. According to this, human being is struggling with desire icon.
