love is a place

love is a place
and through this place of love
(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
