hello again

as if marshmallow is sticky;
and a hedgehog is angry;


Face to Face

If ever was I so blessed;
It is today.
I saw you in a crowd.
But you stood different—
Your smell was preternatural
I was lost in your eyes
Seeing the little worlds they carried so far.
Your gaze I cannot miss;
It is a shining sun in the dark night.

I may call you mine.

There is a feeling of knowing you from eons.
I’ve spent my entire life waiting for you.
And now you’re here face to face—

_____Muhammad Shahab
