Seek Me

Seek Me

written by: Aurora Kastanias


Let go of me do not hold
me in, exhale, let me ebb,
slowly leave your shore
I will return, in an instant

all your life rest assure
I’ll evanesce, disappear
without much ado, reappear
for your delight, until then

do not shudder at your breath,
let me sidle off your lips
I’ll cleanse you from the toxins
you so fervidly cling onto, hide

masterly within you, I’ll protect you,
always have, from your addictions
pour me out in c o two breathe me in
again in o two, I’ll tickle your bronchioles

pervade your three hundred
million alveoli once more,
drift into capillaries reverse
into red rivers flowing your veins,

from head to toe let me assist
your heart beat, give it rhythm appeasing,
I’ll come with new perfumes,
rejuvenate your essence make sure

you’ll seek for more.

Aurora Kastanias

Born from a Greek, British, Ghanaian father and a Persian mother, I grew up in Rome, where my parents fled to during the Iranian Revolution. The passion for the art of writing led me to earn a Baccalaureate in Literature, being ever since influenced by French 17th and 18th century authors.
While studying for my BA in Business Administration, at an American University in Rome, I further got enchanted by 19th century existential authors as well as European ‘absurdism’ and the Theatre of the Absurd.
It was only after my MBA that I started writing more seriously, giving space to my true passions. In recent years I have written two existential novels in Italian. In recent months I have started studing astrophysics and writing poems in english, which finally brings me here.
