I Said She Loved You - by Prabha

I said she loved you

She was never satisfied,
you said
She left home as soon as she could,
you said
She hardly ever keeps in contact,
you said

She’s made the odd return,
you said
Never for long,
she takes off again,
you said

I said,
she loves you
She knows you are her rock,
I said
I know how she feels I am her too
She hopes you will see who you are

She loves you
She comes back,
every now and then
She has to come back
to her roots once in a while
She knows you won’t listen,
but she needs to connect

She knew she could no longer
survive there
She only ever wanted to know
she was loved

Poetics describes a whole range of engagements with life that are storied, reflective and filled with imagination and inspiration, as opposed to analysis in the strict sense. When science rules, the magic fades. When thinking ascends the throne, the soul may atrophy. Yet poetics is not irrational – it is a take which reaches into a different aspect of our humanity – one where we can celebrate that which moves us, not dwell on what limits us. Expect surprises. One or many may lead. None or a few may follow and then decide to take the lead. This is a fluidity to break the mould of rigidity. Join us on this journey. Let us hold hands boldly and join voices transformatively. Prabha will be leading us. Feel free to join us.
