Cosmic Love

By Sabina

Love


you always ran too fast for me to catch up


You know I'm no athlete


But I've got a heart of steel.


Love,


You kept jerking away from me like


Autumn leaves swept out of my grasp


By a cruel spring wind.


Love


You were always out of reach


Like words whispered beneath the hum of midday traffic. You never made haste,


Yet you reminded me, all the same,


of the time I was wasting.


 


Till one day,


We played chess.


 


One day,


You sat,


Still as a church mouse


Your eyes half-hidden by


Half moons of alert light


One day


As the rain formed a warm cocoon around us


We shared a cup of coffee


And you stopped running


 


Love, love, love,


My heart has beat those words


For days, weeks, months in my ears,


Love, love, love,


Like tribal drums


 


I just wanted to say those words,


That even now,


Stop the earth in its tracks,


The sun in its orbit


Shocking the planets into meek submission.


Love


I want to shout it,


Yell it,


Scream it,


So that it reverberates in the cosmos


And the stars may hear my cry and give me a moment of their brilliance


Even snatching the dust from a comet's trail to crystallize this moment


As we linger here in this beautiful limbo,


I want you to know.


 


Words are God's gift to the reticent tongue.


And my words,


This stammering, painful poem,


Is my gift to you.
