the timepiece


The anatomy of longing is that
you are compelled to liken it to many things
that do not come close to what it really is
to how it really feels
because that is precisely what it is
indescribable

You would liken it to the desire for a drop of water
by a dry and thirsty tongue
You would liken it to the restlessness
after smelling a wisp of his fragrance
only to lose it to the swift breeze
You would liken it to things you cannot touch
things you cannot grasp
things you cannot catch
things you cannot put into words

The anatomy of longing is that
it will always be embracing
but never consummating
You will never run out of things to liken it to
because the more you long
the more you tremble, at distance,
even if it is as close as cheek to cheek
and more so, if parted by time and boundaries unknown
