She whipped him playfully
with a thin rattan stick.
He said 'I feel no pain' bravely
She asked him if he could not be hurt?
and began to whip herself.
'Stop it... you're hurting me' he said.
He stood at the edge of their
meeting place one day
and when she got there
she circled him
round and round like ten times.
'Have you gone mad? ' he asked
'No I have not' she says
"I am like the world circling my sun' she said.
'What would I be without my sun?'
'I'd be so cold, my life would be gone'
'My soul is yours' she says
'Just as my spirit forever yours...' he said
'They can't tear us apart if they tried'.
To his lover he bid.
In a remote district
two villages were at loggers head.
Around them were fires and slaughter
human blood drunk by the ground.
For the young couple, they were
oblivious of all but love.
She awaited the yellow string
that was to be tied by him
around her neck.
Saffron colored string
that they were wed.
But then his mother dies
and he is delayed.
She waited and she cried
as they took her away to be another's wife.
She still called her
lover's name on the new bed.
Though her body had lost it's feelings
when the other man tied
the yellow string around her neck.
Her spirit was dying in her mind,
'would he still come some day?'
The flesh would die
but the soul so lives
searching for the
last spoken words
that were said.
