Solvitur Ambulando

And if it solved by walking forward

or away,

from the Gordian knot,

emotions and inclinations will lead you to an ocean,

and from there on, from the dead of night,

you will jump into a quintessence that’s unrecognizable,

against that shattered mirror,

and your broken bits clutch

onto that blazing luminescence

and fleeting heartbeat that

was purposive to be listened to.

 

And if it solved by walking forward

or away,

from humans,

and they will affirm that it won’t mutilate,

and they will aver that it won’t maim,

it’s inevitably only a sharp sting,

the blood doesn’t boil in the nucleus

of these veins,

I am cold,

I am frosty,

poems without a beginning,

nights without an ending.

 

And if it solved by walking forward

or away,

I will ask you head on,

no frilled curtains,

using my voice as a kiss

and my words as a chance to hold you,

a chiliad writings

but you can’t fix this,

a chiliad jitters

but you can’t meet that feeling again,

a chiliad crying nights,

but it still muddles the pain.

 

And if it solved by walking forward

or away,

when your breaths are mumbling,

when your arms are reaching for theirs,

it’s a hopeless dance

that still keeps me believing

in faith,

that still keeps me believing

in you.

 

And if it solved by walking forward

or away,

it promises pain,

but it also promised forever,

it promises so many things.

I am always adrift of the

life force without you,

but then the stars suddenly

make some sense,

the poetry has some meaning,

the katzenjammer is faded,

the hours grow short with every minute,

and the years fly by.

 

You were anew, but this is life,

this flower that demands watering

needs a reminder that everything

wilts in the end,

even us,

I love you is a garden

where I’ve been

aflame alive alone

but it’s the way that we happened,

and we know that we existed

at some point,

and

it is solved by walking.
