You Come to Me

Author: Shazia Ahmad
Meetup – Theme/Number/Host: Poetry/#079/Rebecca


You come to me

Like I wish I could to the world

Strong and unapologetic

Strutting around in a two piece, made of wave and waves of disdain

Bouyant, and fluid

Still soft around your egde

Still willing to mould yourself

To me, to my whims, to my words, to my fury.

I, I, I stand here, wishing to be you,

Wishing to be more

To stand in my own vastness and scream

HOW DARE YOU?

HOW DARE YOU REDUCE ME TO THIS? JUST THIS?

HOW DARE YOU REDUCE ME TO THE SIZE OF MY WORDS,

TO THE LENGTH OF “teri aankhoN meiN samandar samayeiN haiN”

OR TO THE BREADTH OF “teri sansoN meiN doob jaane ko jee chahta hai”?

I want to stop.

Instead, I let you flow through me,

Ink to page, staining, blotting

A taint that envelops

Drowning the noise around me, until we are one,

You and I, in a two piece swimsuit,

Standing here, asking,

“How dare you?”
