Frozen Land has Warmest Roots


I was watching her

She was sitting in a frozen place for several hours

Sitting on the rooftop of that frozen place…

unique and surrounded by things

different things

kinds at the same level in and below,

not looking

I don’t think that she was able to look at her surrounding.

So I sat down to watch her in deep silence.

Hours and hours have passed and I was hypnotized.

Sudden lightening hit the dendrites of my body’s neurons.

My mind was the part who felt the big effect.

I walked to her ….. I touched her, decided to put my mouth on her to taste that mystery, and I did. My senses began to organize rational thoughts about her.

I tasted a million taste

her suffering, her frozen wounds and

I decided to pull her out from that frozen place.

As I wanted her to belong to me

I realized that the place she was in was not frozen to her, but only to myself

It was her environment.. her way of adopting to the frozen land

and I kept watching her and became attached to her .. to love her more While sitting and realized that to love her, I must keep her in where she is.. in the frozen land she is rooted in.
