Beguiled by Night- poem by Issa Dioume

(First voice)

Tonight I take the leap
I speak the words that creep
I touch the withered hand
And say: “have me again, old friend”

(Second voice)

If you go away as I know you must
There’ll be nothing left in the world but dust
and the hallowed wind to play silence’s tune
On leaves of branches, beneath a dead moon

Should you choose to stay,
I’ll make you a time where no time exists
And where lovers sit on the laps of bliss,
And in eternity’s palm find life’s kiss


please don’t go away…
