“Red String of Fate” – Mui-Ling Teh, date unknown

clouds on the horizon;

your song

in my ears.


i remember

long-ago days:

a small office,

girls in white,

storm threatening


winds cold.

i remember

you singing,


scribbling lines,

speaking verse,

sketching thorns

onto a

single rose.


i lost

my heart

that day;

you wouldn’t

take it.


a score

of years



who was i –

who am i –

to know:

our paths

would cross,

that i –

unwittingly –

would concoct

a plan

to find you?


where to



another squall

lies in wait


and i’m tired

of squalls,

tired of



how soon

for me,

for you

is now?
