Dreamspeak (poem)

Here’s a poem based on a conversation between the two main characters in my fourth planned series.

CHARACTERS

AKARI – sister searching for her twin

LEARTH – visits his twin in her dreams

LEARTH

Waiting around for it to appear

I bide my time by caring for you

Circles unending, a time out of mind

Wanting that something that’s mine

Holding you close is one way to say

I’m leaving you soon, be safe

Take care of my memory, forget of our pain

In the distance, I’ll wait to see you again

The wind that blows and stops my heart

Will dry all your bright tears yet again

The suns of tomorrow we never could number

When you look at the moon, recall

Before we met there was nothing and yet,

You laughed and said you were free

My chains bind us closer although I try.

Remembering you, do you forget me?

There’s more to life than just us two

There’s more to existence than twain

But two halves to a whole that live apart

I think it’s fate if they meet again

AKARI

Living my life, caring for the absent you

We never met to the face but still know

Two sides of a moon, only one alight.

The sun and the stars are about to align

When we meet, one will fade into dark

We can never stand as those on a coin

But our minds will never clip nor shatter

When it counts we will stand as one

So let me take your death to me

And turn it into unending light

A memory can serve as strength

And help empty others go on.

Let the wind play in the tousled tree

And strike the bright leaves down

Sharp waves will crash, harsh mountains fall

Truth’s light will still pass forever on

There’s more to life than just us two

There’s more to existence than twain

But two halves of a whole that live apart

I think it’s fate when they live again.
