“Pompeii” by the way / Poem by Marian Eikelhof

Poem by Marian Eikelhof
 
“Pompeii” by the way
 
All of a sudden
I am an ancient soul
a woman
more than four thousand years old
carrying nothing on my back
but water
soon I will be home
where my sweetheart
is waiting for me
coming from the bath house
fresh, shining and loving me
carrying nothing on my back
but water
I don’t know lava will overflow me
don’t know I will be found back in one piece
have no clue about wars to come
dividing all of us
and I am still unaware
the earth will be no longer mine
within a period of time
carrying nothing on my back
but water.
