CLEAR CONSCIENCE

 

Today I remain silent
so I don’t mistake
silence
with the void.

Absorbed I admire your eyes,
clear awareness
that melts my balance.
Crossing over
the barrier of silence,
playing the forbidden game.

Constellations
can not speak,
the universe,
can fall apart today.
It’s require to turn
my world upside down.

But at this very moment
your gaze
is all I have.
