When the desire for love
can no longer wait
and imagination is not enough
and can only push you even more
against the wall of that empty room,
with no doors and no windows
that is the time to convince yourself
that you won't live any more lives
and that when you close your eyes forever
few will have to be sorrows,
many the joys.
That is why love
is hollering at you within,
because it knows is the only thing
that in the end
it can make you close your eyes
with a smile
instead of a grimace.
