flutter

 

the longing came suddenly

alighting like a bird

wings spread as far

as the heart could see

and in the silence

that followed

the great revelation

it spoke –

your name

SO MUCH DISTANCE BETWEEN US

SO MANY TIME ZONES AND THOUGHTS UNSHARED

WORDS UNSPOKEN, TOUCHES LOST

HANDS REACHING AND NOT FINDING

MINDS FILLING IN THE GAPS…

WE LINGER IN A SPACE UNKNOWN

EXCEPT FOR WISHES UNFULFILLED

THAT RISE LIKE MOURNFUL LANTERNS

INTO THE SKY OF YET TO COME

His eyes.

She was in a grand hall, teeming with people. So many people, it was hard to see past them. Heads formed a cobbled tapestry, resembling a heavy, angry ocean under a dark sky. The steady murmur of voices was like the hum of an invisible swarm, hovering somewhere outside, seeping in like magma. Stifling, relentless, encroaching. Slowly she made her way through the crowd, jostled left and right, losing her sense of direction with every step. She could not turn back. She could hardly move, finally giving herself up to the pressing current of so many bodies against hers. Then she saw his eyes. Dark, unblinking, looking straight at her. She could not see his face, body, only the dark eyes riveting her to the spot. Fear pushed her on and she struggled against the throng, desperately trying to escape… She knew she couldn’t.
