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.
