I Became Scherazade

The stories I told

Unfolded before you

I became Scherazade.

telling these tales through

every means possible

I came to retell the story

your smile familiar

peculiar

as if a silent witness to

these stories

your spirit present

you are not you

this presence overwhelming

yet subtle and grounded

those watchful eyes

witnessing souls

witnessing me

evolve and unfold

a master is timeless

ageless

selfless

when you completed my words

and turned my pages

as though this telling

was only a retelling

you simply wanted to hear

what you already knew

sound healing

awakening.

narrator silenced

I became the listener

words no more

what to teach the ones

who know

What to tell the ones

who are

silence became the word

the word no more
