Jonah’s Cries

Tears of blood

I’ve never heard

such cries

As you have cried

could it be

you are Jonah

I am whale

We are trapped within

each other

This prayer of none but


Verily I am the lover

Who transgressed

The norms

And here we are

In this ocean


In the belly of the whale

Your voice

Is my silence

My silence

Is your pain

I wish the ocean

Would relieve us

Yet desires us


How about we sail

Upon the waves

I find you safe



I am safe with you

Any separation

Would mean

No Jonah

No whale

No cries

No echoes

No us

Leave me not

On this journey homeward

my beloved
