Asymptotic Wishlist

Water, so hot
Trickling down
Waves of words
Flowing across
Glued to the seat
Peeling off feet
Asymptotic coincidence
Random decadence
Something in my blood
Will not let me die
Will not let me die

I wish I was a sunset
Coming to life on the other side
I wish I was a railway track
Déjà vu each day
I wish I was a ball that could not bounce
I wish I was born an eight of an ounce
I wish I was a drain
Spit all the rest away
I wish I was a rainbow
Show up once in a while
I wish I was a poem
No reason, no rhyme
I wish I was a wish
Just the name, no grant
I wish I was a drug that will not heal
I wish I could’nt feel

everytime I read your poetry, I think to myself.. Sahar, make a comment, let the writer know of his brilliance.. but an immediate retraction follows.

chances are that you must be well-aware of your ability as it is, and secondly, sometimes, words are just not enough.

take care
