covers of me, of time

you complete me as you rise

to fill every gap

with each perfect



you truly

to be full

of cells


in your deep

as the covers of me

of time



purely invisible

your wish

what is your wish?
why don’t you tell it to me

so i can keep it safe in the place
where the trees know
your name

and why not tell me too
if you are for real
in a place where i am you
and you are me

did i tell you yet that you are my wish?

can i face you, ghost
and know everything
that what isn’t said
could be
but is masked instead in a mist…

its chosen way
lose yourself
in me
when you feel you see me
but don’t

a side of me, you follow
gone like mist, maybe sleeping

eyes lost
proudly to you
and for you

reason realized

you are my soul…

i see you as i am inside
looking out
to feel
with your magical sight
positioning yourself
to give me eyes

but still i ask
who are you anyway?
i know what i know what i don’t have
do you?

you have spaces
that my spaces fit in always
leaving me speechless
you are precious and tough
i’m reaching for you

you are a smile that lasts from the first light
to the last dream of you
and for you…

to see you is to hear you
knowing this about me
ever-changing as you read
my mind
to bring me my finest moments

and so i speak to you
we are reason realized
my world inside
as my tiny roots blend with you
