Poem by Konni Kim
When I say ‘light’
I mean the lightness of your words
I don’t mean the lightness of your flesh
I mean the fluorescent lights he turns on to welcome me home
I don’t mean the city lights that beckon
from across the Han River
for my attention
When I say ‘being’
I mean the presence of your mind
I don’t mean to talk about every fiber of your physique
I mean the words you whisper to remind
me who I am
I don’t mean your iPhone.
I haven’t written for so long because I was caught up in university applications and a huge exam (post about it all coming soon-don’t miss it I’m going to be super honest). Sorry. But I’m back! Yay!
