Long flight eventually over,

sometime after time stopped,

after I stopped feeling…

I navigate the busy airport,

nodding appropriately at officials,

and I arrive at the “Arrivals Lounge”,

full of people waiting

for friends and loved ones…

So many people,

but none of them for me.

There’s a freedom in that.

The myriad voices dull into a numbing blur,

I walk in effective silence.

O, Katyusha,

what was (so beautiful!)

and what could have been

(more and beyond!)

gone,

like the rocket’s red glare,

high

in the night sky.

(O, how I wanna go back!

And forward, somehow…)

But alas,

I’m so sad,

the ship has apparently sailed.

And I am alone,

and feeling

incomplete,

without you.

All I can do is stare into space,

imagining that you are too.

In the darkness I scribble,

literally in the darkness,

I write.

And in the darkness

it makes perfect sense,

profundity,

heartfelt compulsion.

The words are my legacy.

Read.

Pray.

Appreciate.

From Krasnodar,

she perceived the cold,

while others scoffed,

she dressed wisely.

Passage of time,

flowers wilt and die,

passage of time.

She would go to their funeral,

but she has something else (more interesting) on.

Increasingly desperate,

I flail my arms,

I push buttons.

My intentions genuine,

ardent, needy.

The results,

inconsistent,

out of my hands.

Alas, despair…

People, systems,

no one cares!

Hey Yuliya,

refrain…

yet another,

quatrain…

 

 

I renounce nothing,

but regret all.

Broken heart sings,

after the fall.

Then, nothing.

After the recent,

relatively pleasant

and stimulating,

interactions.

They left me alone.

Totally,

alone.

No contact.

Days passed.

And nothing.

Alone in my cell,

it used to be a refuge,

now it felt like hell.

I have a dream,

expansive,

enlightening,

beyond the parameters of usual communication.

It’s something like…

The Niña, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria…

Imagine,

such a voyage of discovery,

futurity

and immensity…

(Open your mind,

let yourself go,

sail beyond the horizon…)

Such implications for humanity!
