She said "I'm falling in love."
I said "I'm falling apart."
What's the difference?
Isn’t it funny,
The happiness we pretend to have
Is the very thing
Holding us back from living.
i'm practically on my hands and knees, Lord
begging for a sign
of whether i should stay or go
dazzling in the sun
Does time change us
Or do we change time?
I am still what I was yesterday
Will never be the same
I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz,
or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.
I love you as the plant that never blooms
but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;
thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,
risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.
I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way
than this: where I does not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.
Love is not blind,
but he who did not see your worth.

In the beginning
I didn't know of his existence
In the end,
He was the end of my existence.
