Egovin

In the midst 
of the waters
I heard a 
voice
I mean a still 
small voice

In the cloud 
of the sky 
I saw a star
whose 
brightness 
reminds
me about the 
transfiguration

In the middle 
of the night 
I saw a ghost
whose 
feeling was 
so memorable

At the center 
of the 
universe
I saw an 
eclipse
calling out a 
name

Among the 
cast a 
character
stood agape 
another 
speaks but
in stream of 
consciousness

At the 
parliament
I saw chairs 
being thrown
suits being 
torn
faces being 
squished

At the 
market 
the lads left 
their
shops...and 
allowed their
eyes to 
remain fixed

All these 
elements
recognize 
you dearie

I tried to hide 
my love
for you but 
silence 
refused

I went to the 
dark to keep
it but light 
came forth
I entered into 
the water to
bury it but it 
dried up

I have no 
money but 
you
I have you 
but no money

You are me
I live for you
You live for 
me
You are me 
and we live  
for love
