He

His voice said

“come”

His eyes said

“stay”

His mouth whispered of

peaks and castle tops

His hands implored

“honor my touch.”

I ask

“who are you?”

I ask

“how did you know of my hunger?”

I sang of love

dying and lost

I beat the death march

on my drum.

He said

“I am the wind.”

He pleaded

“Give me your hand.”

He confessed

“Your hunger is who you are.”

He comforted

“I understand.”
