Reach - Poem by Femi Folami

Reach into memory,
remember unions,
unspoiled, unbroken...
dry those cleansing crystals,
Let Love Flow Again...

Say it three times softly,
in a whisper, in a whisper
Shout it once...just for luck,
then move on.

Cross yourself my dear,
it will get better and you
know it.
It will never be the same,
when all that pain is gone.

Reach into memory, touch the circle...
feel it pulsing, light a candle,
watch it flicker
dancing shadows know your name.

Reach into memory,
touch the center,
hold it gently,
let the oil warm a little,
You are annointed,
Let it pour!
