Before You - Poem by Sara Militello

Before You

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
by signing.

November 1990
