Silken Threads


Silken Threads

We are two souls

Like silken threads

Woven together

By fate

Your heart echoes

In the gentle murmurs

Of the ocean of time

Without you

I am like a lost leaf

Chasing the wind

In vain

A flickering candle

Whose flame

Casts shifting shadows

As it burns itself

Away

Or an empty boat

Drifting aimless

With no company

But the cold moon

And the vast

Cornerless sky
