Silence of the Dark

Sifu, I miss you.

You belonged to me, the way Shams Tabriz belonged to Jalal Rumi.

Since you left, I have been shrouded by a thin mist covering my eyes.

In this world, which suffers without you, water exists as vapour only and as I move to it, it rises away from me.

Since you went away, my place has been the placeless.

I have retreated into the silence of the darkness, sifu.

One day, let us be restored.
