Within Hailing Distance

Written by: Mpho Leteng

i heard your piercing scream;
you stroke the center of my heart with bellows cold as a welldigger's ass,
you breezed my innefable core,
you put me through the mangle
intergrated the intersection of our different state of existence.

breathless in an unreal moment,
i crumpled to the ground,
i crawled towards echoes of your vociferation
through the dead night i ran naked
only to find you there no more!

i know you've long died Marry
and i've put your memories as a seal upon my heart
now that you came back for me 
my soul is cleaved to your faded existence
the logical platform of our unending love God knows;
