i found love (&)

i found love &
she looked the other way

nobody told me
nothing equipped me
what could i say?

words of love
futile poems
a holybook
made eternal and banal

uttered to extinction:

timeless words of prophets
make no demand
no command

believed by lovers or dreamers

   invented in the hearts of youth

    patented in their posession

it's not the knows-better-than-you elder
it's not the to-tell-you-the-truth elder
not the moral of the story

it's the wise grandma that one-day-says
i felt that, too

if you want to win her
don't tell her words
take her someplace she's never been

but nothing could convince her
no distraction could get her attention
when her eyes gaze on the horizon

so catch up.
