We are not, by R.

Όταν ξεκινούσα αυτό το blog δεν είχα στο μυαλό μου το ενδεχόμενο να φιλοξενήσω κείμενα άλλων. Να που μου ζητήθηκε όμως, κι από άνθρωπο που εκτιμώ, οπότε δε μπορώ να το αρνηθώ. Μιας κι εγώ δεν γράφω τίποτα εδώ και τόσο καιρό, ας ανανεωθεί το blog μου με κείμενο κάποιου άλλου.

We are not


Even if we stayed for a lifetime, it still would not be enough.

Never will we say that now we are ready to depart.

And yet we do.

We pack, we leave.

Separated by space we walk united in time.

In an earth that seeks to become, we somehow manage to be.

And we are together.

Under a sky that never ceases to destroy we somehow survive-

for now.

And we continue.

Do not ask me where we are-

Do not ask me where we are going.

All I know is that we go-

And that we go together.

No hand can I hold but yours that is not here.

No face can I see but yours that my sight never reaches.

No laughter do I ever hear but yours that never ceases.

And we go.

Don’t ask me where-

All I know is we are going together.

You are here and then you are not-

And yet here you are again.

As if you never leave.

And yet I may not touch you.

And then you come back and I come back

And we are indeed together.

Like a splinter in life’s wooden surface we become.

And then we are

together.

We enjoy a day in the sun;

Together

We hold no fear, no remorse.

Together

We can.

Together

We are.

And then we go again;

somewhere new, somewhere far

away.

And it seems as though the road is always stretching

And I stand on one end

And you stand on the other.

Together,

The two edges of the earth.

And we move

Separately but together.

I take a step

You take a step.

We walk.

As if we are holding hands.

Until some day we meet again.

And,

Suddenly,

it seems like never when

together

we were not.
