Eye of the storm

I hold on to you
the only one
who does not disappear
from my ever changing mind

in this storm of impermanence
you are the eye
of the cyclone
calm and never changing

Divided mind

Sometimes I write poems in Burmese/Myanmar, because some things can only be expressed in that language. One of those poems that only made sense to write in Myanmar is “Divided mind”…



Your voice makes me
and you entangle me
with your words

never straight
always hidden

you catch my thoughts
and make my mind
revolve around you

you make me linger
and you wrap me
around your finger

Linger - Burmese
