Before A Lifetime Sia Morweng, Poem What would a forgotten you be like, not left to your devices or scratched off my embroidered moments; simply my thoughts placing a curtain before my adamant desire to chase fantasy? Would I live up there with a forgetful wall, mirroring an empty space or would there be a shadow I cannot trace? What would my filled words sound like uninspired by teenage dreams? Could I still call a blue sky serene or pretend I know how to call the sun hope? Walking possessed by the mood of an untroubled day becomes My own mood, so the moon’s infinitude could accompany me into fruitful sleep, could my words still identify with those emotions? Are you significant to my painting of life I call my own in breaths? I wonder how I’ll call my star a jewel if it’s not a reflection of a look I captured in my galaxy “his eyes on me” as rare glimpse when I caught you catching my dreams? What would an unnamed you tell my dreams, as a stranger, could your voice reach synchronicity with the leap of my heart? how my heartbeat would duet with your voice when my thoughts were occupied christening my mind with changing season? This mystery… What would a you I’ve never met say to my swan like face, I dreamt a figure I drew and I’d like my eyes to convey to my thoughts and those To request my soul a mating dance?
