I Fear the Moment When Everything is Said

Heidelberg, Germany, 2011.

A short story:

Of all the improbabilities in the world, you, one day, meet someone, a complete stranger, with whom you develop a deep, intense connection, almost instantaneously, marking the beginning of an effusive exchange of words, thoughts, and ideas, so riveting insofar as it wholly possesses your being, and then, on the fourth day, this kindred, poetic soul expresses: “I fear the moment when everything is said”.

A poem:

I fear the moment when everything is said
for it would render all of imagination dead
and between the lines would lay nothing to be read;
shall we let unspoken magic wash over us instead?

I fear the moment when everything is said
for we of that time would then begin to fade
and no longer for us would there be paths ahead;
could you see the ghosts that gradually take shape?

I fear the moment when everything is said
for the beauty lies in a future so vague,
each word, a song, a lightness unlike lead;
might this all have existed only in my head?
