Love in Arizona


You are from California
I am from the Midwest
But we met in Arizona
And went to the desert
To measure thorns
Of the lonely, dispersed cactuses
Measure the light rays,
Measure the distance,
Between us and the world
Measure the love and kisses and screams
In the solemn silence of the desert.
We kissed the dusty ground
And asked the dry land for a reason
But the ground was silent
And we got silent
There was no measure no reason
Only life, only life,
In the dead desert
And we kissed more
And did not ask or look for a reason
Anymore

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
