You can stay together…for another day, a poem by Soulla Christodoulou


The breeze it blows

My hair around my face

Curls tangled and knotted

Like our feelings confused and

Mixed up like morning’s half-awake mess

My face wet from the cold rain

Summer evading time and space

We walk, you limp, I slow my pace

But wonder whether your love will wait

As my heart threatens to run away


Tall buildings and beautiful architecture

You recall tales of times gone by

Stories I listen to intently

Yet know they will later pass me by

Your voice, a twangy soft tone

Gentleness true, like cotton wool balls

Clouds drifting aimlessly

Nothing threatened yet all anew

My mind is muddled, befuddled

My heartbeat a sonnet, a song


Coming from it the most beautiful sound

As I watch in wonder at your realness aground

The rain keeps coming

You reach out and take my hand

Our fingers touch, electricity bolts

Through my body a thousand volts

I pull away knowing it’s too much

How can I bear the lovingness of such?

When you’re so close now, closer than ever


A force from you comes shining through

A bright lightning strike

A thunderclap of rolling thunder

A message delivered by the universe

Like gravity it pulls and tugs

As if from God in the heavens above

Looking down and the message is clear

The words saying don’t give up

Don’t move from each other away

You can stay together…for another day.
