On War


All is fair in love and war?

Fairness flies away when love

Turns to war

~On War



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?
