LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT
want to amass, darling, all clouds in the sky
imprint in it a First Love forever to reify!
a time I contemplate the horizon blue
ask myself if it is truth or dreamy dew?
love has happened without expectation;
it a dead certainty or a quick evaporation?
feel like a dry desert luckily receiving rain
turn a torrid terrain into a fertile domain.
I respond in full swing to my heart
consider it a lightning flashing like a dart
bursts out, glorious but brief as a spark,
dies out and sink into the infinite dark
my heart to writhe, in its prison to lout
invisible railings impossible to get out.
up the whole immense heavens real
that I can worship my love, the ideal!...
