M. Daedalus - POETRY / POESIA

2000 miles

Soldiers, chaos, explosions and sleaze in England
Scandal, disarray and yet more bombs in Latvia
We have an appointment with ourselves and our roots
Turmoil, revolt, corruption and bitterness in Israel
Over two thousand miles to meet the one I love

I recall a white square where we last said farewell
All mundane concerns and distresses escaped us
As I walked away your shadow embraced the snow
Ever since we were left imprisoned in memories

But our love is like the sun, the wind and the birds
Immune to time and distance, clear of any anxiety
Bearing and enjoying the absolute liberty of comets
It knows no danger, no darkness, no frontiers
Just the violence of a kiss, the aggression of a caress
