Where are you?

I’ve been waiting

My soul supplicating the universe

Generations have come and passed

Remember the little market we had on the street corner?

The hustle and bustle of our neighbors?

Scurrying to and fro on the cobble stone streets

The love we shared in our tiny apartment above the shop

The love filled the walls to the brim

Dripping out of the windows and door frames like honey

That was a few incarnations ago

Since then I’ve been in the dark


Where are you?

 I’ve been waiting

Waiting for the stars in my constellation to reappear

The landscape to come to life with your presence

 Our passion was like Yanar Dag, Our love the Land of fire

The warmth we found in each other’s arms, fierce enough to last from one life to the next

You promised me you’d come back

It has been many lives since

How many incarnations do I have to go through till we meet again?



On Memories


I sit cross-legged in the dirt

A little girl and grown all at once

There is a fire before me

The flames tell me nothing

No truth in them

Just the heat warming the tears on my face


Smoke drifts upwards from the flames

My dreams of us, my love for you up in smoke

Little embers of anger pop now and then

Only to burn out and turn black

Dust to dust ashes to ashes
