when we say hello

The night is young &
         we are riders in the  s t o r m  

racing against the sea &
         wind that divides us  a p a r t   

black & white pieces of the puzzle
         that doesn't fit/fall into one  c a n v a s 

maybe our l o v e is like this- 
         f r a g m e n t s  of stories, flickering flames 

never c o n t a i n e d  in a lamp,
         nor inked in the same pages of the b o o k-

we're always searching for b e g i n/
         nings & when the music is over, s a y 

h e l l o-
         love me (2x) m o r e -

s t a y!  my wild love!*



Everything human
is leaving
her face

Soon she will disappear
into the calm
vegetable
morass

Stay!
My Wild Love!

  19. We're always searching for beginnings... Love that! It is so exciting, the beginning of a relationship... And the secret is... one can never go back. It's all about moving forward and trying to retain some of the magic (not all, as we should be making new magic, too :)

  26. Isn't it wonderful - love being greater than the sum of the two persons in love. :-)
