E.E. Cummings - I Carry Your Heart (I Carry It In My Heart)

Gustav Klimt - The Kiss (1907-1908)
i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)
i fear
no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want
no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)

Reality doesn't need me...

"Reality doesn't need me./ I feel such an enormous joy/ (...) So if i die now, I'll die happy,/ Because everything is real and everything is right." ― Fernando Pessoa (1915)

I remember/ how seeing the shape of your mouth/ that first time,
I kept staring/ until my blood turned to rain.

It would be a privilege...
