Peer Of  Love.

I was in love with you since the time I was slave
And had to carry water from the banks of the Nile
Pouring it into your clay pot;
I was in love with you since the time when I was  queen,
And you would knock the terrible bull down at the circus
Then bow your head down before me;
I was in love with you since the time
When you were a pagan god
And wine and blood would mix into our pagan love,
I was in love with you since the time
When you were a crusader
Our love of Jesus would bless our love
And make us follow it;
I bring love to you from the depth of centuries
For I simply was born with love
And you must mix with the eternity of love
Then rise from the centuries being forever new.

In place of the love which I donated you
I received  pain.
I can’t deny: generous you are:
the pain you gave me was much more
than my love was.


If I manage to escape
from  the race of the time
that follows me,
I’ll go to gather poems,
where the trees blossom
and wait for me:
(so many poems are there!)
