"Zoya, forgive us both." - John Ashleigh - 07 November 2005



Zoya Zaidi.

Dear Zoya, 

 

Here the friction between us – oh so hard,

Scorched away sentiments toppled over.

Brigade this fire, this warmth that trails

Us into our red-epic conversation of age.

 

Sorry – A hinge to slide our friendship.

 

Here the friction between us – slender,

The snow stopped; I hadn’t fallen deep.

Spark up the golden embers again to

Dry our messages full of empty flints.

Zoya Zaidi
It's OK John,
We are friends again
We understand each other
And have similar pains
For those who stand
On the fringe of society
Who have little to gain
From there wretched lives
And burn in ember flames
Of poverty and infame,
The empathy you have for them
Is in my heart the same
That is what connects us
And that is the flame
That we have to keep burning
For their sake!
Brother,
I will always look out for you!
Take care!

Zoya
