In Love A Sound. A Poem by Maki Starfield

Editor’s Note: the image of the poem is drawn by the artist herself
 
 
Love
You desire me
Since before you were a pure soul,
Beaming-from-faraway stars
 
Today,
You are a thread, a thin beam of light,
Running around the galactic system
Like a chimpanzee
 
But
Now
Love, you are telling me
The mystery you hid yesterday
 
Your lips waver
Your heart appreciates
Your song overflows
 
I am the same woman — Am I not?
Who, in search for the unformulated perfect world,
Speaks about the courage of jumping
to the bottom of a formatted universe?
 
I just know the truth is there
Behind one door
My heart knocks on
Since yesterday, from a distance,
Since times, since my birth,
The eyes of the universe echo
The answers
I whisper
 
I am just conscious of
The world without sound,
The miracle of joy and pain,
Is full in the silence of the universe
 
In vain, you asked for my love,
In vain, you still expected,
Telling the love of a wanderer
 
the other door,
