My Yearning

Wear my yearning
As if it were your favourite perfume
Wear it
As if it were your watch
Or even your favourite crystal
Wear it
As if it were your favourite underwear
Or your lucky charm
Or even your favourite shoes
Just wear it
And let it widen your smile
And soften your eyes
And make your heart dance
Let it create ripples in your sleepy ocean
And bid mermaids to cajole us
While we only care to sit and contemplate
Let it paint your seas
And lift up waves, raging and wild
Able to drown out the whole cosmos!

Let it fire up your sparks
And bid you to consume of it
As would starving wolves
Having met with their prey
After having spent months in drylands!

Wear my yearning, Muse,
Wear it
And let us both rejoice of it
As its energy flows between the instruments
That have now become our bodies!
