we were not two souls in one body...

this is the ninth

of a series of poems by nooshin azadi

derived from drawings by rhoda penmarq









.

we were not two souls in one body
or perhaps we were
but that body was the trunk of a tree
and trees have got branches
and their branches grow in different directions

we grew apart

we were not two souls in one body
or perhaps we were
but that body was the course of a river
and rivers have got branches
and their branches flow in different directions

we grew apart

we were not two souls in on body
or perhaps we were
but that body was the path to a journey
and journeys have got branches
and their branches follow in different directions

we grew apart

.

Or maybe one Soul in two bodies. I am going to carry your words away with me and they will nestle in my heart. Know that.
