Save Me! (A Tanka)

Let me breathe your breath,

as you hold me in your arms,

masked and fragmented.

Save my putrefying soul,

from the person I was, once!

Lebana’s Tanka

Tanka #01

Hold my hand tightly,

as my heart pounds jauntily.

We’ll reach for the stars

and we’ll climb the highest hill.

Oh! It’s just a reverie!

 

Tanka # 02

 

Look into my eyes,

ponder on what is inside.

Have you seen that glimpse?

We are living the best life.

Oh! It’s just a reverie!

 

Tanka #03

Listen as I speak,

uttering the foremost words,

with qualms and delight.

Then, you replied certainly.

Oh! It’s just a reverie!

 

Tanka #04

 

You lighted my path,

when I was lost in the dark.

You comforted me,

when I was crumbling in pain.

Oh! It’s just a reverie!
