Stories by Alisha Kanabar
Tell me a story
of a passer-by;
of a set of eyes, brighter than the sun;
of the glimmer of happiness and hope
of your hands resting upon hers;
of your gaze dancing in her reflection.
Tell me a verse
of a joyful song, lyrics twirling, twining towards timelessness;
of feeling lost, embedded and entranced;
of you dancing in her skin.
Tell me a poem,
of that passer-by who became more than an obligatory tie;
of a test of care, a soul to love;
of a body along which you yearned to lie
Tell me a play, even just one act,
of the person who became your peace;
of an exhibition of your fondest memories, exchanged in the glance of eyes;
of a rainbow where the colour of love refuses to leave.
Tell me your story
of the stranger
