light and shadow

if there opens up a room for you beside another
and for him beside you full of light and space in which you can truly and wholly be yourself light and shadow in which you fall in love with yourself, even
with yourself, imagine! this you, you see in the mirror, the other’s eyes become for you 

so sudden the vision of yourself
as you were meant to be -
in which he falls in love
with himself,
even himself, imagine!
the self, he sees in the mirror of your eyes -
so sudden the vision of himself
as he was meant
to be from all beginning - if you see yourself and him full of light and shadow you are free all of a sudden to give yourself to the universe

love is a place

love is a place and through this place of love move (with brightened peace) all places   e.e. cummings

love is a place I have not found yet I moved around for 18065 days
did I ever look for it?
when I wanted to be loved I thought I loved another truly – but what I saw was always me, longing for innocence, what I saw was this question, deeply connected: is it important is it possible to be loved by others for who you are?
I could have asked: is it possible to love another for who he is? it is important instead I tried to find me and was not very good at it I wanted to be alone, to open the door – visit me not because love is a place
