Origami

2007

take the time to notice
how
every moment is concentric
how the past unfolds into the present
like origami
how
when the sky is overwhelmed by the beauty of the earth
it rains
how a kiss
when your lips
leave my skin
lasts a week
makes me weak
makes me dream
of cities ablaze with light

every night
you whisper in your sleep
in a language I will never understand
you tell me
that heaven is a heartbeat
and hell a state of mind
that the blind can see what's meant to be
and everything is fine
