I know love comes unexpectedly
and with long, sharp nails rips apart eternity,
with kisses, like the power of the sun
that bakes and cracks dry river beds.
I’ve seen love move sensuously or like an earthquake
that can make tall mountains crumble,
and huge skyscrapers tumble to the ground,
for love is sound and irresistible.
I’ve never heard of love obeying laws of gravity
and mouth to mouth, infinity rolls upside down
and I don’t care,
because I am of air.
I’m not the wind.
I stand beneath the sky,
And impatiently under the sun I spread my arms,
So I can then caress you with its warmth.
Are you are the sharp edge of the breeze that rips my flesh
to let the fragrance of your smile inside
and there wonder for miles?
Or, can you be the cloud that embraces the sky
to take us to a place so high,
that we can’t even see the earth?
In such a place we’ll find no earth, no moon, no sun, no sky,
far from the stars, eternal night,
where angels can’t provide heavenly light.
And since there’s no one in the universe tonight,
I’ve lit a candle,
and I’ve poured some wine.
I think you know when we’re alone we are delicious,
I think you know when we’re alone
we are the line,
that crosses through the oceans
And all that we can see are shades of time.
