I’m Good Because Love Transcends Space & Time

Aurelia Lorca - Im Good III

You said it was impossible,

but now I can say that

I have given you the impossible.

I love you now when all physical desire

is gone and truly impossible.

I love you in the furthest reaches of my mind,

where you are a daily meditation.

I love you on my drive to work.

I love you on the way home again.

I love you in the way my heart stops just for a minute

when I see a man wearing your hat but he is not you,

he will never be you.

I love you as I cultivate my loneliness,

and the anticipation of my own death.

I love you as I wonder about how my flesh

can yearn so much for your spirit.

I love you in the jewels of memory.

I love you even though

I am angry with you

for not being able to choose this world,

and all that I must hold sacred.

I love you and forgive you,

as I am learning how to forgive myself

for choosing this world,

and all that I must hold sacred.

I love you in the way I gag on emotions

that leave me stupefied.

I love you in the way speech nonetheless

manages to find me

I love you in the way

I choke on letters when words come so fast.

I love you in the way I am so starving

for language that I have to reinvent it.

I love you in the way I must force myself

to become empress and magician.

I love you in the way I must force myself to be alive,

though you are not, but I must nonetheless force myself to see,

and hear, and feel, and smell each moment,

each texture, each shape, and taste everywhere.
