you are everything i want
you are a poem i cannot write
a word i cannot translate
you are an exit wound
a name i cannot bring myself
to say aloud
What are you thinking about?
You always hated it when I asked that question.
It’s a tricky question you used to say.
That it’s an illusion to pretend that we can bridge the gap between your thoughts and mine.
For you, every person is like a planet and two different planets can never become one.
Two people together will always be: one plus one.
I preferred to think of us as bubbles, because when they touch,
they merge into one another like when two people make love.
But now I know what you meant.
Two people together will always be one plus one.
I know a certain tune that my life plays;
Over and over I have heard it start
With all the wavering loveliness of viols,
And gain in swiftness like a runner’s heart.
It climbs and climbs; I watch it sway in climbing
High over time, high even over doubt.
It has all heaven to itself—it pauses,
And faltering blindly down the air, goes out.
