You-Again

You-Again

written by: Maryambu

 

Your perfume is yet the strongest
That lingers on my longing soul
No running water nor detergent
Can rub you off of me

My veins they do a double take
When you pop in to my mind
My blood stream boils a hundred
And I always run out of ice

My ears they always hear
Your husky secretive chants
And yearn for more music
From your ever charming voice

Stories of you are so endless
I need to take a break
And rush to get some restful ness
Before you dominate again
And again- and yet again

I originate from the Maldives islands and have a passion for languages. At school, I discovered my interest in English. After graduating from high school I studied Applied Linguistics and have been doing so till today. At present, I work at the University of Waikato as a Learning Development tutor. I also collaborate with a number of overseas universities to research Applied Linguistics. In my spare time, I enjoy writing prose and poetry and I am instantly transported back to different times in my life - I can sense it, feel it and visualise the exact moments. I also have an interest in art and gardening. These activities have taught me to be more patient, but more importantly, taught me to be more patient with myself.
