Love actually

By Andrada Costoiu

I didn’t have time to think,
My heart said yes before reason.

I remember when we meet,
For a second none of us moved.
In a room with noisy people
We felt as surrounded by a thousand silent faces,
And then you said : “meet me outside?”
I went straight to the door
To stumble in the plaza lit by the moonlight, with you.

Unstoppable attraction drew us together,
And then,
We molted into the story of two lovers separated by oceans.

We are near and far,
In the midst of uncertain,
One things seems to hold:
The emails we write.
We construct paradise in the wilderness of our dreams,
We fight for freedom from blind tyranny of distance,
We race each other into the light of love,
We play roles that no preacher can find.

Today I plucked hopes from the three of dreams,
My hands seemed to comprehended the needs of my heart.
With the hopes I made myself this pair of wings,
To fly to you.

In an infinite universe,
The twang of gravity is so powerful when it comes to lovers.
Love will always stay in orbit,
The orbit of two dreaming souls.
