By Olivia Onyekwena
an old soul in celestial transit
do you watch me from the sky?
I stare long at these photo frames
of me and you from times before
your aura lingers on in the passenger seat
with no one singing along
to our favourite song
on this three-hour ride to the place
where bodies meet sand and stone
when this earth's journey comes to an end
if I see you again
do you promise to say goodbye
before you leave?
Olivia Onyekwena is a writer and poet who writes about memories, lost love, and what-ifs. She is inspired by starry and moonlit nights together with the tons of tv shows she consumes. Her dream is to write and create a series of young adult TV shows alongside recording multiple podcast episodes and a football show. When Olivia is not writing, she's reading fanfiction.
