What do you do?!

What do you do?!
by Nasrin Sasanpour

What do you do when the tally of sunshine

is burning your skin with the heat of the moment;

piercing through your most inner parts?!

What do you do when the shadow of death

has befallen your best & closest of friends;

taking you along on a ride to neverland?!

What do you do when memories & the taste of that wine,

is haunting you day & night, sleep or awake;

lasting longer, lingering further?!

What do you do when the mesmerizing scents of autumn, the purity of

rain, the free whirling wind, the glory of colors, and the essence of life are begetting you,

once again, to gather the pieces of your heart in true splendor of being?!

Walk with me

Perhaps together we can learn how to feel

Perhaps we can learn to be
