rather lovely thing

IMG_6531

since you, my dear
like and idea
lie next to me
in stardust sea
in 20.000 days on earth
hence everything’s collapsing here

since you, my heart
in time and space
and grey and blue
are being spread
all stars get lost
all day and night
painting my sleep
with colors bright
(scarlet for you and pink for me)
and then they die mysteriously

since your hands
are a compass free
light filled with rite and mystery
this gypsy blood
is craving more
in seas of sage
and seeds of storm
your gentleness
an obscure wight

my kiss will jumble you
tonight
