Once Again

Entering, a beast emerging
from hibernation
You push your way – carelessly, thoughtlessly –
into the chambers of my heart
Again

in your time zone
Tracing steps once taken
surroundings at once
strange and familiar
As the weathered hand
of an old lover
I see you
Only you
Gher enta

That my heart is not
again
left in ruins.
