the calling

Posted on Updated on

You are
with me
within me
every second
of every moment

Yet, I live the truth
of ‘You’ away from ‘I’

Yet I feel
this intense separation
from home
Like an unborn child
pulled away
from womb

Like the thirsty desert
that longs for rain,
an affliction
with no remedy for pain.

Sleepless at night
restless for days
Beloved, your memory
stirs me awake.

My trembling lips
heaped with sighs,
endless tears, in your name
are now running dry.

Without you, my essence,
how am I
to stay alive?

Calling out
my entire being
leaps,
gasping
for a breath ..

I miss you.
Take me home.

In you,
my essence dissolves
like sugar in water.

Beyond you,
I see no other.

Who was I
when I was without you?

Who am I
now that you are here?

Forgive me,
when I shamelessly ask
for your love.

Without it, darling Beloved
I wouldn’t be alive.

‘Show me a way to you’, I ask.
For if my steps don’t lead to you
they aren’t worth taking.

Only if you knew,
how much you are missed –
you’d never be apart.

First, to seek love
Then, to be love.
This is our becoming.

Untold Stories

Posted on Updated on

Now and then I wash upon

The shores of untold stories,

Begging to be told.

And as I crashed

Upon this sandy shore

Of a broken pair of lovers

I tried my best to cling onto

And grab as many grains as I could.

Before the waves pulled me back again

And the story faded away.
