Modern Love Xviii (Sad Snail Words) - Poem by Liberatore Suffoletta

My heart smiles when you are silent,
an absence, not touched by distance,
hawk breath soaring above sparrows
Into the mouth of morning sun
Seeking one kiss to close plum lips

As my soul finds anchor in all things
you emerge from all, carrying my soul
as a dancing firefly of dreams
caught from behind by mauve twilight
of my soul and these sad snail words

My heart smiles when you are silent
It is as if you are traveling far away
a dream firefly cooing a lullaby of light
not awakened by the voice from afar
my silence wishes to make love with yours

My heart smiles when you speak, silently
clear as daylight, simple as water,
Lunar, eternally quiet, adorned with stars
Meditating like the moon, distant and simple
my awe wishes to make love with yours

My heart smiles when you are silent,
Poignantly distant, dead to the world
A word then, any word, a smile will do
to create joy again in the uncertainty
my death wishes to make love with yours
