Narrative Symmetry

Unknown Photographer

Night falls
with orchestral precision.

We sit in the shadows, listening
to the rain outside our window
crash for a distant audience.

And you say, like you have,
so many times before,
Waiting is beautiful.
Is that not so?

But that is your story.
I have my own:

Awake at night,
my fingers tangled
inside my hair,

I wait for you.

Time slices
my longing into
a thousand fragments.

I save them all.


  1. Un très beau texte comme toujours!
    Et que tes fragments de temps doivent être beaux mon amie!

    GROS GROS BISOUS et très belle fin de semaine, ma belle Nevine****

    ps: je suis une grosse vilaine et je n'ai toujours pas répondu à ton mail!!! J'ai trouvé un remplacement à faire dans un collège à 35km de chez moi et je n'ai pas vu la semaine passer;o)

    1. Ne t'inquiète pas! On a tous beaucoup à faire!!! Merci pour le plaisir de ton visite, ma belle amie! Bonne semaine!!! :-)

  2. dear nevine,

    you simply captivated me.
    i've always loved your sharp, brilliant and unique style of writing; i am always amazed at your poetry...such a talent you have.

    wising a wonderful day,

    be well!
    big hugs to you~

    1. My dear Betty, it's so lovely to see you here! Thank you for the very kind words; they are deeply appreciated. I hope you're enjoying a delightful week. I'll swing by soon. Big hugs back! :-)

  3. ...hello Nevine, an extraordinary poem dictated by a smart look and thy desire who want to live every moment of time that inexorably leads them away with him, left them in the room of memories. Acute reflection. A sincere hug .. :-)

    1. Thank you, Sergio. Your thoughts about my poetry are always meaningful and profound. I really appreciate that. You are a gem. A hug back to you! :-)

  4. So lovely, Nevine. Waiting is agony.

    I wish I could post comments on your other blog, the naked light. I loved the last post there! Silence is eloquence.


    1. Thank you, Jai. Yes, waiting is most certainly agony. And thank you, also, for your comments on my post on the naked light. I closed comments there shortly after I started that blog... and then never really thought to turn back. It just felt more right. Maybe one day I'll take that back and reopen comments. We'll see... Again, thanks!

  5. Un petit coucou pour te souhaiter un superbe weekend, mon amie!
