Eternity By Infinity


                                For Lisa
                               

In hopes that we would go

The depth over the distance, growing
Deeper than the roots of a tree

I took for granted that we would be
As one
For eternity times infinity; yet,

Love is a feeling

Memorized, destined to
Immortality—

Never forgotten
Even if & when it dies
As it does sometimes.

& though yesterday is a memory, your soul
Still gleams with the same brightness as the sun.

You were the total conjugation

Of my entire language
& the music playing

In tune to moments
We’ve unhappily 
Lost in translation.

& our embrace,

A universe within itself
To call home, alive

Archived in my mind
–that always refuses to go
Quietly, already too late for a grateful exit.
