YESTERDAY’S  WAY

 

 

I left Yesterday

I do not inhabit the past anymore

 

Just a trace

A habit

Terrible

As night empties itself and

Disappoints the dawn

 

 

I left Yesterday

Like one breaks a heart

And whines for a space

Where nothing lasts

 

 

Just a resistance

An illusion

A fear

 

Have we already….?

Are we still…?

 

You console my forlorn delights

You give a face to my straying wanderings

 

In your embrace

I interrogate Time

As one drinks

From the lips of Blood

 

As deep as the Earth

When She surpasses us

And that She fiercely grows

Within our simmering touch of intimacy

 

I listen to your tenderness

Up straight

Melting differences

 

I taste behind my eyelids

Like a fever of sleep

 

My dreams expand in angst

Exquisite and mute

 

And I sink myself

Fugitive, strangled prisoner

 

I sink

Into the oblivion of conjugality

 

A handful of wishes

 

And I leave myself…

 

As I left Yesterday…

 

I am traversed

By minuscule immensities…

 

I slow my skin…
