well folks, this is a guest post for the one and only Mehreen (aka. Warm Sunshine). it's been a while in happening, and i thank my lazy habits for that. but here it is nevertheless. and oh! yeah, the guest post is up on my blog as well, once again thanks to my laziness that prevents me from coming up with something separate for this space...
walking over the grass, turning it into a path,
miles traveled by the exhausted feet.
for a promise was made to the spirits of a journey
at the end of which await the Gods in stone.
time-traveled over generations,
the journey in me still remains
and one day it makes me walk the same path
to come pray to the Gods in stone
a vague poesy is my prayer
discarded just like that.
some words i said to the stone
never said back.
along the same old path,
the lament in me now poured out.
my eyes see things a bit clearer.
i traveled all the miles,
only to ask things of a stone.
so chide me for being so blind my lord
for i wanted you to mend my broken desires.
foolish that i was, but no more shall be
laying along the path, by the Gods in stone
i've been taught to see.
