Without knowing

Woman dancing in the dark  reflected in a high windowRunning toward the dark, without knowing
Anything about light
Letting yourself go in a vacuum, without knowing
What is the fall
Floating on the surface of the water, in the finite of the sea, without knowing
How much it can be deep
Sleeping all night long in a bed wide as a life, without knowing
That we’re alone
Breathing, minute by minute, with shivers on the skin, without knowing
That nothing is forever
Dreaming suspended between one world and another, in REM, without knowing
If reality is dream or nightmare
Loving, loving, with every beat of the heart, against all odds, without knowing
That is the only way.
Di corsa verso il buio, senza sapere
Nulla della luce
Lasciarsi andare nel vuoto, senza sapere
Cos’è la caduta
Galleggiare sulla superfice dell’acqua, nel finito del mare, senza conoscere
Quanto può essere profondo
Dormire tutta una notte in un letto largo come una vita, senza sapere
Di essere soli
Respirare, minuto dopo minuto, con i brividi sulla pelle, senza sapere
Che niente è per sempre
Sognare, sospesi tra un mondo e un altro, gli occhi si muovono rapidamente (REM), senza sapere
Se la realtà è sogno o incubo
Amare, amare, ad ogni battito del cuore, contro tutto e tutti, senza sapere
Che è l’unica via.

It takes two to tango

Feet of couple dancing tango…My time is at hand, my dove
They’re gunna pass me to that house above
Is Heaven just for victims, dear?
Where only those in pain go?
Well it takes two to tango
We will meet again, my love
I know…

To remember what it was

An old tree in winter All creation
holds its breath
and join the lament
in this ambered moment
no bird sings
the bees are unbusy
at no flower
and no sighing breeze
nor trembling leaf
allow the dancing shade
though boughs bend low and the flowers lean in
as if they too seek to console
time is tied
and they are frozen
in yearning
for the past
because, at the death
a little of the future dies too
and it is right
that the world should sometimes
hold its breath
for a moment
to remember what it was
_ Will Carruthers (The clocks are stopped) _
