Between a Word and a Star

 

How everything started

I do not know.

I only know an immense desire

to be near you, to be you.

 

Like a torrential rainfall in a summer day,

you are.

Like a burning sun warming my back after a long winter,

you are.

 

For you and with you I feel infinite want.

All that I want is everything you want.

 

And it is in this wanting that I lose myself

since it is there that

I find you

almost behind the heart.

Between a thought and a stone,

between gravity and suspension,

between a word and a star.

 

Hidden silent

present.

I just know who you are

in that second of perception

that the thought flew.
