How beautiful and sincere 💙

A blue heart 💙 is a symbol for deep and stable love; it represents trust, truth, harmony, peace and loyalty 💙

A free soul 🕊 is the ultimately giving soul, the soul that gives without expecting an in return, if your soul is not free with the one you’re involved with then something is not good here!

IN LOVE YOU SHOULD BE FREE!

Adesso
.
Again, you watch the white trees
bending in me, again the trembling
of the dissembling future, still
with some assembly required.
Again, the symmetrical arrival:
adesso, adesso, yes.
.
Then the sun wakes, hammering
the anvil clouds as its own holy bells.
The sun, panting the violet air
off the stones in its afternoon work;
hanging the city, itself washed clean as linen,
to dry over the firm, friendless earth.
.
Of course I asked for the pale-skied heat,
for the heavy calm, for sleep,
for neap tides, an even-keeled
existence; for, finally, a station to keep.
But the world turns under its water,
and in the morning you are gone.

“I found you there looking at the stars...”
.
There is a sharp-stoned road
that runs unevenly between
longing and belonging
.
through shade on shadow
a road through hungry trees
and the eyes of the crumbling dark
.
I found you there looking at the stars
when morning overtook us
to dance with the rhythmic sea
.
tell me the meaning behind my mind:
in the air I see the heart of a drowning man
in my dream I give all my things away
.
I like to let my eyes lie down on you
in the theme of the world being the world
I like to be quiet with you
awake under the woken sky

.
I want you and your star-filled mouth
I want you torn out of your paper dress
Like a private page of wordless requests
.
I want you to arrive on me
Like a castaway, I pray for storms
I light pyres on my beach at night
.
My eyes become bright shrines to you
Believers leave orange flowers in them
Candles burn out without them closing
.
I want your lamplit shoulders
The pale dunes of our secret places
The white-fleshed apples of this oasis
.
I want you and your sea-glass skin
Your tidal laughter swirling in
The shingle of my shore
.
I want you more
The more the sky is bitten
The more of our story is written
.
I want you in the liquid dream
I want you in the painted city
I want you to remain in the glittering seam
Of my strip-mined memory

Tap to hear it spoken...
.
I love you as the sea loves
With a blue heart and a freed soul
.
With the salt and impetus of life
And its abyssal mystery
.
Or as green bottle glass
loves the uprushing wave
.
I love you as the storm loves
The first line of dunes
.
And as the beachgrass
Loves the shifting wind
.
I love you as the mariner
Loves the milky sea
.
The ocean fire lit from horizon
To horizon for days
.
I love you as the sky loves
The whole bright earth
.
I love you as the sea loves
With a blue heart and a freed soul
.

“Try to tell me”
.
try to tell me
what is real
the sea is warm
.
the sky is very dark
the heads of palms
pray with each other
.
the wind
sings psalms
in its pile of stones
.
we try to breathe
and exquisite waves
catch our open mouths
.
we are made of this
and this saves us
in the current of days
.
this is real
the sea is warm
the shore is delectably dark
.
tonight you tell me
to forget the curled
root that binds the world
.
when I cannot get
my sails unfurled
to cup the roaring air
.
I try to tell you
what is real
the dark is very shy
.
I want to drink
the closing sky
and so I try
I try and try
.

She said: do not write this down.
It is lighter than paper. It breaks.
It is not for knowing.
.
She said writing is wasted.
It bursts, being full of air. It breaks
On me like a wave on stone.
.
She said: what is the sea for
When it is far away? It breaks
And you cannot hear it.
.
She said: tell me about the sun
And how the day is coloured. It breaks.
It is not for nothing.

Tap to hear it spoken... “I want to love you in the thousand ways”
.
II
.
I want to love you in the thousand ways
Declaring all my eternities
Yours, and though time may raise
Up and then raze down eternal cities
And the rest fill in with earthy mediocrities
.
Still, these manic forms will hold you:
A love outlasting a life professed
To gnaw and gnash and to be true
As need, all jealousy confessed
Love of the possessor, and the possessed
.
Love expressed in cold sweat
Without words, budding loves that teethe
And mewl in darkness, beset
By love that lets its envies seethe
Love that cannot speak and cannot breathe
.
Love that takes and then is taken
Love that cages and uncages
Loves that lock and then break in
Love that knocks the walls and rages
Love condemned by saints and sages
.
I want to love you in the thousand ways
My madness loves your madness
In the haze of every moonish phase
Late at night, in suspicion and in sadness
And in lunatic, gleaming gladness
.
