Like a Fisherman

By Tahaab Rais

I linger between thoughts of you.
Reality is mingled with the chords
from our last conversation.
And I wonder what it is
that lifts life to that melodious duet.

These pages of unspoken words, I write,
all filled with an unknown passion.
Finding you, there’s more to life that begins to beckon me.

The song that I have long wished for and long feared,
has reached me.
And I await your call with a facade of patience,
like a fisherman,
waiting patiently…
