Laila

we were hit by our Laila too
engulfed in her whirling winds
drenched by her torrential rains.
too much. at once.
as only a typhoon can be.
her vicious winds
unleashed
tore through us
all fragile links
laid waste, barren.
…and as the last whiff of her breeze
floated away into eternity
we stood, once more
separate.
unknown.
strangers.

  1. Laila to me would always remind me of the star-crossed lovers story of Layla and The Madman or Laila Majnun of Arabic and Persian origin between the 9th to 13th century.engulfed in her whirling windsdrenched by her torrential rains.too much. at once.as only a typhoon can be.So bewitching was Laila, men went mad with desire. Your words, though not intended, remind me of this Laila strongly.
