A visit by Cuda

Written by: Edward Dzonze

She 
sang 
a 
song 
unheard 
of,
patted 
my 
lips
and 
whispered 
something 
i 
could 
not 
understand,
neither 
could 
i 
feel 
the 
bruises 
on 
my 
lips
when 
she 
and 
her 
shadow 
were 
gone,
leaving 
behind 
a 
skeleton 
too 
real 
to 
be 
skeletal

The 
skeleton 
which 
gives 
me 
company
but 
never 
said 
a 
word 
ever 
since 
we 
met,
The 
skeleton 
which 
convinces 
me
that 
Cuda 
is 
not 
at 
all 
a 
mystery
but 
a 
thesis 
which 
only 
i 
can 
claim 
full 
mastery

Miles 
away 
she 
stands 
resolute
on 
a 
balcony 
overlooking 
my 
pity 
tattered 
world.
The 
letters 
that 
i 
write,
she 
can 
jump 
and 
drop 
a 
response 
by
but 
i 
cannot 
fly,
the 
balcony 
is 
way 
too 
high.


She 
is 
only 
that 
which 
i 
saw 
in 
a 
mail
and 
through 
these 
visions
towards 
her 
i 
sail,
whistling 
the 
song 
she 
only 
sang 
for 
me 
first,
Upraised 
by 
this 
not 
so 
skeletal 
skeleton,
i 
recited 
the 
lyrics
even 
without 
much 
knowledge 
of 
the 
meaning
Do 
not 
doubt 
my 
singing 
(Cuda)
If 
you 
listen 
to 
my 
whistle
Forever 
more 
we 
shall 
be 
kissing
