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
