YOU

by July 12, 2008 0 comments

You ask me what I want from life and I say:
“You.”

A few tears cascade down your cheeks.
Some wet your parched lips.
I taste your tears.

“But there is so much more than I possess.”

“If I can truly love you, I will be free to
love others.”

“Well, they say you’ve got to love yourself
before you can love someone else.”

And so I gaze into my multicolored mirror
&
speak to the others, bathed in colored lights
or pitch-black darkness.

“Today, I love you-all of you-for a few
minutes, within the sea of contaminated
time, flooded with rage,
but calmed by soothing
waves of colors

& a vision that we are one.”
