2 Poems – Soodabeh Saeidnia

Art of Being Together

I was the rain
You were the flood
The blood of wine
poured in a glass
The eruption of passion
crossed our line
We are a deluge
Beware of our influx

I was the wind
You were the lightning
The angry thunder
growled in between
We are a hurricane
Beware of the devastation

I was a particle
You were the dust
The magic of gravity
pulled us toward
the earth for many years
We are the full moon
Beware of the tide

I was a letter
You were a word
The black art of his pen
wrote us on a board
We are a poem
Beware of our influence

Clean Up

Sometimes I get
a massive headache
Doctor advised me
to delete the shards
of some memories
