I recognize you…

I want to see you.

Know your voice.

Recognize you when you
first come ’round the corner.

Sense your scent when I come
into a room you’ve just left…”




I Live You

Our spirits speak.

From where you are
to where I am,
I can hear your heart,
Sometimes over the loudness of my own
I lay down,
When I can,
I give in, to the sound of your resounding  love.

Like a gong, like a drum,
the pulse penetrates
my skin,
closest to kin,
I touch the surfaces of your existence,
decoding the braille,
the bumps,
I exhale,
Life is so mystical.
Breathing, I inhale,
the essence.

Languages, unknown
I hear, in my dreams.
ancient mysteries.
In my mind,
I contrive,
I find,
myself succumbing to
the caress of fingers,
of stories,
of memories.
of things,
so true.
Vivid answers,
vivid truths.   – shila iris
