Tsunami
by Francis Masat Bookmark and Share
 
  Teardrops had fallen
and wrung my heart
dry. too weak to cry
sweat had trickled
down the feet and palms
hiding in the bulging
under the eye.
I had been dead three days
trembling at a doorknob
locking the masked one
only to face
the bandaged one
doorknob to doorknob
the night of a mind
searching the labyrinth
of a deadened heart
for life.
I had waited on the waves
to return my cry
combing the sand
sniffing your scent
among the putrefied
begging the fish
to vomit up a lock
of your hair, an eye
I had waited on the waves
to return my cry
I listened
my heart smiled:
"I know you!"
The bandages fell
my eyes saw you
I ran ahead of my arms
to embrace you
you are alive
Because you live I live
I wasn't ready
to see you die.
