Ego Libera

a poem by Rahmat Alkarim

Once, I shut my eyes,

The world, the time,

collapsed.

Then, I open my eyes again,

And everything is born.

The moon stares at me in blue,

While the emptiness lurks in,

As my vision went dark,

And the world withers.

I dreamt of you grasping my hand,

And holds me tight through time,

Kissed me like an angel,

Then spoke words of beauty through my ears.

I think of you as happiness grows,

But time slowly sow you from my memory.

I created a part of you within me,

From parts of you that didn’t exist.
