Between paradise and despair

by Andrada Costoiu

The presence of you
Always irrevocably wins,
My want of life,
Is in your arms….

I try to understand,
The inner effervescence, the mad, the dangerous, the purity of what we all call …..love.
But I do not understand….
I don’t.

You take me high and then you bring me low,
Is this how it’s supposed to be?

Abandon means becoming and absorbing….
But how could I…..
When I’m just a human afraid of being hurt?

My heart rises up in defense of my spirit,
Beat….beat…..
Between paradise and despair….
