Take me

For so many days so many months
we walked together
on the rain drenched streets
of our ancient city,
for so many days
we lived with so many
men women and children
only finally to bury them.

Please do not look now
somewhere else,
do not look at me and laugh,

Take me inside your cave
when the evening star sparkles,
and in the midnight bed
let your feet
touch my heart
almost bleeding
like the pavement stones.
