Revelation - Poem by VIRGINIA PECHO GELY

You were my blissful ecstasy,
Your presence decomposed strange madness…
…However divinely subtle.
My miserable me subsisted in this conjured nostalgia.

I have always idolized your simplicity.
Often in the silent night,
Your eyes thrilled through me with their tender lights…
I lived each moment in an incomparable surrender…
…to the past, to the present and to the future.

Each heart beat was just unforgettable…
I was a vagabond in an unknown errance…
I knew I’ve fallen to something irresistible…
Unknowingly…the pleasure consumed my very existence.


From that brief moment, I learned what love is.
I defined it as irrational, renowned, forgivingly complicated, endless.

I became a being always willing.

I let live.
…Now let me confess…

When I met you…

I learned to love…
I learned to live…
And knew despair.
