Who Are You

Ehsan Sehgal

Who are you
I do not know
But why do I feel
In my heartbeat
Your name sounding
In my eyes
Your images
Appear and twist
Occupy my heart and mind
Control my soul
To make me
Your prisoner
Is that love?
Your love or my love
Once come out
Only once
To visible to me
I want to touch you
I want to taste you
I want to see you
I want to talk you
I want to embrace you
To merge
To become one heartbeat
With blowing breathings
Until our breathings stop.
