The Continent of My Heart

Kawah Ijen, Indonesia, 2012.

Kawah Ijen, Indonesia, 2012.

Waltzing words,
dancing decibels.
Veiled tectonic plates shift
amid tremors of affection.

Your effusions have sent
seismic waves throughout
the continent of my heart,
no longer to be found.

Do thoughts of love
reside in volcanos dormant
before one day erupting,
releasing its passion?

With fears retreating
into the hinterland,
do you feel it melting:
my heart in your hands?

– Agnes Chew
