(you know)
it IS…
(even if it’s hard to believe)
a series of adjectives,
incompatible , somehow, additives,
to spice up an all-enduring dream –
and so it goes,
between ‘yes’ and ‘noes’,
significant qualifiers
colouring insignificant signifiers!
and so it happens
that there ARE:
thoughtful stars
brightening thoughtless skies,
moonful wishes
lightening moonless nights,
meaningful sighs
reddening meaningless words,
painful roads
generating painless falls,
desireful silence
burning desireless thoughts,
shameless instincts
firing shameful herds!
oh, yes!
so many
restless dreams
within one restful arrow
even if it’s for an hour
but
love IS…
oh, no!
so many
soulless eyes
inside the soulful nights
even if it’s just for a while
but
it IS…
a series of incompatible adjectives
known only by the needless compatibility
between the needful you and me!
