Before You - Poem by Sara Militello
Always do I embrace all efforts
to pierce the boundaries of my knowing:
With you, a part of me unknown
reached for surrender.
Tasted a truth.
After you I became a bastion of solitude
in a sea of mediocrity.
Seemed that's all I saw around me.
Yet in the whisper of a sigh
night also lent meaning to reason,
disdained not the naive fool
who sought to know what night means
