Even if I owned all the stars in the world so that I could conceal them into my fist and put them neatly safe into my pocket, I would still choose as the center of my universe only one star. The star with the colour most blue.

Even if I was given in this life only one day to live , I would still choose everything that I originally pondered. I would choose the kiss of your sweet lips, it’s miracle, I would choose your wet eyes, your light breathing, the touch of your skin. I would choose the rain of shooting stars, but yet still only one star. The star with the colour most blue.  

Even if the world had to offer me all the time in the world and all the trains of the world , all the aeroplanes, busses, metros and trams, so that if I wished I could  travel round the world myriads of times and see all the nations and countries of the world , know all their languages and religions, see all their mosques, synagogues, temples and churches, and know all their finest thoughts, I would still choose only this short moment with you, I would choose the temple of your arms.

And even if I was given all the loveliest words and songs that linger and shiver in the night, all the most beautiful blue shining verses, so that I could hold in my arms all of this world and play it like an instrument and it would be like a lyre in my arms, I still would choose only to hear those three words that you whispered to me in the shining moments of the dark night.

And even if the world had to offer me the most brilliant pearl or the most miraculous and glimmering diamond , or even a treasure cabin of all the most finest diamonds and pearls and even after that all the most finest rubies, saphires and smaragds in the world, I would not change your eyes to them, I would not change the look in your eyes in the first moment I touched you to them.

And even if the eternity itself would be handed over to me so that if I wished I could forever and forever write more poems, fairy tales, short stories, songs, so that each one of these would be more beautiful than the other, more miraculous and deep in wisdom than the other, and even if I was given all the beauty in the world and the most beautiful words in the world, I would not change the moment that your loins met my loins and your mouth touched my mouth for the first time in a kiss even to the eternity.

Because so deep as the deepest ocean , so deep is my desire for you.

So wet and light as a drop of damp on an rose’s petal in the dawn, so sweet is your kiss.

So dark and black as the darkest night, so deep and melancholic are my feelings for you.

So tender and fateful as the wings of a mnemosynebutterfly, so tender and fateful are the aches that you cause in my heart.  

Nostalgia for the Unknown
