back to you


love me today exactly
as if I’d be a suave melody,
be poetic, be like a painter
full of gentleness in
his enormous attention
for any detail… —

love me today exactly
as if you are hypnotized
by some drops of rain
in a tropical summer night
to cool you to cool me
by this fever full of longing

love me today exactly
as if you search the reason
that brings me back to you
not in the morning, not even
at midnight but at the hour
when you’re reading this…
