#058

yes, la Lune
does resemble you
maybe that is why
they named you so, but

the annihilation is in me,
is in the way i find you in
every tremor of leaflets,
in every fallen breath

it’s in the way eclipses leave me
scrambling, seeking
that amber fire
of your eyes-

don’t you know i love you too?

  1. Yeah, I love these:
    “the annihilation is in me, is in the way i find you”
    “it’s in the way eclipses leave me”
    “that amber fire”

  2. Oh wow. You got me at “la Lune”… my best friend, and in my language! I love the end – your poem makes sense to me in my life just now. And right from the start, “yes, la Lune / does resemble you”, like the person were all in the universe, more important than the moon itself…
