When Worlds Collide - Poem by Maja Dezulovic

When worlds collide
And seasons change
All that’s left is you and me
And our very own sweet (in) sanity

You look at me as if to say:
‘You’re all that I need’
And I want to scream
‘You’re mad.’
And when you’re gone, you’re out
Making new friends,
I want to call:
‘Please come back’

And in the mornings
When you’re lying there
Baby faced and in your own peaceful sleep
I fall into pieces
Because I want to hold you, kiss you
Shake you awake so that you can rise to the pain
The pain of living,
The pain of loving
The pain of you and me,
Which is actually not pain at all
But mutual joy, understanding
Never-bending, never-ending
Just you and me.
