I’ve heard…

a poem by Teesha Guliana

I’ve seen
I’ve read
I’ve heard
People saying

That when you
Fall in love
With a writer
You become immortal.

Every touch
Every word
Every emotion
Is inked.

It’s inked
It’s told
Over the years
Above the seas.

It spreads across lands
And floats over oceans.
It touches hearts alike
And some tears take flight.

Some stories take you
Into a garden full of tulips.
Some stories
Are like thorns on roses.

They’re strings attached
Making beautiful notes.
They’re strings attached
Leaving unhealed woes.

A bottle of whiskey
Is near to celebrate.
A shot of tequila
Is gulped down straight.

I’ve seen
I’ve read
I’ve heard
People saying

That when you
Fall in love
With a writer
You become immortal
And brave…
