The nature of things


Siavash Emamzadeh
June 4, 2005

The wind
She blows in my face today
She opposes my gait today

The sky
She blankets me with rain today
She cautions me with thunder today

The sun
She burns me with her rays today
She induces my sweat today

The earth
She rumbles under my feet today
She embraces my house today

You slap me in the face today
You turn your back on me tomorrow
You yell at me in one week
You despise me in one month
You leave me in one year
Please, just break my heart today
