We Shall Meet again

We shall meet again
By Azly Rahman



We once met when Time was immaterial,
grasped by the hands of the Beloved
When you and I was Space
          formless and void
whispers and screams of that tedious argument of creation we could hear
in the corridors where spirits roam
          in a purgatory of yet
                 another karma
                 within a karma
         to become yet another form and nothingness
you and I care not


Unforgettable Fire
I shall meet you again
With Time and that Void we have brought together
          as we unite and soar higher
as we become no longer flesh, blood, body, soul, intuition, Indra –


We have gone far my Love
This perfect union
Long has it been an imperfection
Dharma disposes

We have seen Kurusektra
Where fire rages within the hearts of men
Brothers against brothers
warrior against his guru
Krishna the charioteer
Guiding  that Kshatriya of all Ksatriyas
           Arjuna
the reluctant slayer

Ahh ... we have seen
     how Fire consumes the soul
             of mice and men


Have we not also seen the wanderings of Adam
imbued with names
banished in shame
to suffer the pain
Of a well-designed game?

O’ love ... did you and I not
bear witness to that?

You and I O'love
Could not endure even the sight of pain
of siddhartha the prince of light
he was becoming
          a living meditating corpse
          fasting
          suffering
          transforming

O' Love
you are a devotee to the wishes of men
            have you not bathed them in you?
                     so that they may become flesh and blood?

but you and i will meet again O'Love
Unforgettable Fire
     we shall meet again
