I kissed her so many times under the infinite sky. <br/> <br/> She loved me, sometimes I loved her.<br/> How could I not have loved her large, still eyes? <br/> <br/> I can write the saddest poem of all tonight.<br/> To think I don't have her.

She will be someone else's. As she once<br/> belonged to my kisses.<br/> Her voice, her light body. Her infinite eyes. <br/> <br/> I no longer love her, true, but perhaps I love her.<br/> Love is so short and oblivion so long. <br/> <br/> Because on nights like this I held her in my arms,<br/> my soul is lost without her. <br/> <br/> Although this may be the last pain she causes me,<br/> and this may be the last poem I write for her.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/43064/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/43064/ <![CDATA[<b>Clenched Soul</b><br/> <br/> We have lost even this twilight.<br/> No one saw us this evening hand in hand<br/> while the blue night dropped on the world.<br/> <br/> I have seen from my window<br/> the fiesta of sunset in the distant mountain tops.<br/> Sometimes a piece of sun<br/> burned like a coin in my hand.<br/> <br/> I remembered you with my soul clenched<br/> in that sadness of mine that you know.<br/> <br/> Where were you then?<br/> Who else was there?<br/> Saying what?<br/> Why will the whole of love come on me suddenly<br/> when I am sad and feel you are far away?<br/> <br/> The book fell that always closed at twilight<br/> and my blue sweater rolled like a hurt dog at my feet.<br/> <br/> Always, always you recede through the evenings<br/> toward the twilight erasing statues.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/43065/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/43065/ <![CDATA[The heart may think it knows better: the senses know that absence blots people out.
