You, Again

by nourayasmine   Jun 17, 2020

I want to know all of the stars,
denote them with wishes only you
would recognize. You could trace
your way back to me.

I want to go
where you went last.
Maybe breathe in
the sunrise on another planet.
Or be a sunrise,
where you stand,
a high mountain.

You could be a family of birds.
Then, I want to be the sky above you,
watching your freedom
chirp louder than the city turmoil.

You could've become moss
or debris,
or heavy rain,
or yellow leaves,
and I would choose to
be the atoms of air
surrounding you.

I want to be with you again,
when I'm given another chance
to be.

    There's something so comfortingly simple and confessional about this. I imagined it as a song, or a prayer of sorts as it feels unplanned and open. Despite the longingness and poignancy, I found the imagery warming, perhaps random, or perhaps specific/a reference to the person you're writing to. Beautiful poem, Noura,

    Some very lovely imagery here! The first stanza and in particular this line really speak to me, "You could trace your way back to me."
