IN THE EMPTINESS



I remember finding You,
Completely unexpected,
In the emptiness,
In the eternal emptiness,
The emptiness of my heart,
Beyond the shadows,
The shadows of dreams and disappointments,
Beyond the horizon of expectations,
Far from the mirrors of what I thought
Love looked like.


Oh how I remember
Finding You there,
Completely unexpected,
Finding You there in the emptiness
In the eternal emptiness
Where there was simply,
Simply and only You.

You possessed no height nor weight.
No hair, no boobs,
No waste line to measure.
You harbored nothing good nor ill.
Yes, there was simply,
Simply and only You.



And of all places,
In the emptiness
In the eternal emptiness.
Of course,
I found you there.
Where else could I find You?


There was no pumpkin
No carriage
No horses nor mice.
I was not a Prince
Nor You a Princess.
There was no slipper
That fit or not.
No clock to strike twelve.
Yes, there was simply
Simply and only You.

And when I dream at night,
Your legs capturing my body
Like an octopus,
I remember.
Yes, I remember,
And I go searching once again,
And I find you once again 
In the emptiness
In the eternal emptiness
Where there is simply,
Simply and only You.
Simply and only Me.
Simply and only Us.
