Light Being

Light Being

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

 

And

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.

Guys,

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!
