NWG Inc Anthology 2012


MY SONG
Isil Cosar

our togetherness at a moment’s notice

is what I miss

almost as much as our music

what happened I will never know

you will sit on the fence

and it doesn’t really matter

(because i long for a new song)

dew drops tear drops rain drops

rain drops love drops dew drops

Let’s sing through minarets

about being driven to the edge

but waiting

writing in air, the stillness

the moment

circling the kaaba

and movement

let ‘s sing about lonely marital beds

of distant closeness of  hate in the lovemaking

about insight to being outside

and phases that become permanent

let’s sing of guilt and unsent letters

a father reads his wife

the stories engraved on her face

and what she leaves behind

doors left ajar

let’s sing about birds that have lost their way

to find a new land

let’s sing about summer days cooling suddenly

only to warm again

dew drops tear drops rain drops

rain drops love drops dew drops

let’s sing with Solomon

let me be your oud

touch me with love

lets sing until there are no more words

no more sounds

no more chants

no more tunes
