the mountain

every step i take
i’m closer to you

the way i feel you
see me
as if looking through

piercing…

did you know
you are the mountain
i intend to climb
and reach?

…after all
you are the one who
taught me
how to whisper

to say to you

it will all be ok…
your heart
exposed to the perilous space
which took your breath
led by that which
lures you into the current
you need
love directs your course
you know..

and it is no mistake
that you felt him looking at you
as if looking through
knowing all in an instant
that day
more than once
as if to say to you silently
yet directly
some day you will be mine
