Waiting - Poem by Sara Sabeti

I'm tired of all these pretendings
Sick of all these boundries
I'm waiting for you right here
As I lay on the ground
Below the open window
With wind going in my hair
touching my skin,
penetrating into my mind
and making me even colder.
I'm so cold and drowsy
I can no longer feel...see...hear
See the stars in the sky
Hear the scream of the joy of the people in the street,
Or feel life...
Something has died in me.
My heart aches-my chest is heavy.
If it's not the barrier of life
If it's not the call of death,
Then what is this burning pain in my body
That don't let me go? Makes me scream..
Come my one, come and save me
I'm drowning...drowning in the sea of my tears
Suffocating slowly in the damp swamp of my thoughts.
I feel nothing..I don't fear
I just wait for you to come,
To come and take me from this ocean of pain into the safe boat of your arms
sail to the places where there will be just me
and with your lips on mine
I close my eyes
And rest in peace...
