"Every heart sings a song, incomplete, until another heart whispers back. Those who wish to sing always find a song. At the touch of a lover, everyone becomes a poet." Plato "...I have long rested my eyes upon you in moments when, unnoticed, from far, a secret wave, without knowing from where it comes or to where and to what it goes swiped your face in a tide of light leaving behind pieces of you, shells and mother-of-pearls, mollusks, shining on the shore of my wandering mind like diamonds fallen from unknown long dead stars... I have long rested my eyes upon you with doubts and answers silencing the ever talking mind for a fragmented second a moment full of a deafening silence cut in two from a gesture, a frown, a breath... your eyes are deep and bottomless your smile, my broken arrow lost into the garden that is you I cannot deny my heart the right to breathe you in with every breath like a drowning man trying to postpone the inevitable instinct ties me with black bonds of longing makes me go orbiting around you lost inside a radiating nebula of thoughts where the mind has little to say where the heart rules balancing dangerously between light and blood affecting the meaning of what i am because of you I have long rested my eyes upon you looking for the signs of return back to where i came from and back to where i was before scared to hear again your song echoing inside my shell your song - after all this eternity... scared to make you turn your gaze to face my abyss that has your name written on its depth yet, in front of your gazing eyes I let you undress the yearning Me with your heart on fire as i silently pray to be consumed in the flames... Then comes this wind And you watch the falling leaves dance outside the window I flow quietly in every vain of your hand that rests on my knee counting the precious moments by your side heartbeat after heartbeat after heartbeat..."
