Marwa Rakha


within you if you care
beneath you if you dare
around you but so rare

of being a kite soaring high
of being a raft floating by
of being an eagle in the sky

You are
a windmill where I blow
in my energy you shall glow
breathe me; die or grow

Feel me
pushing underneath your wings
giving you speed and strength
flying you in fantasies and beyond

sweeping you off your feet
gliding on water to a rhyming beat
dancing where two hearts used to meet

I vow to wrap you up in dust
to sweep you off the crust
in a hurricane of rage and rust

I shall become the cloud raining on your parade
the storm rocking your lonesome boat
the wind blowing through a hole in your chest

crashing your waves on the seashore
burying your bones under the ground
pushing your down where you belong

a soft breeze through your hair
a tender whisper in your ear
a whimper of desire and fear

your lungs collapse in the absence of air
your face turns blue with despair
call my name if you dare
Baby... pray for air

You cannot hurt me
Pass through me
See through me

I am invincible
I am invisible
I am indispensible

Air is my name
Fair is my game
Shame oh shame!
