On some impulse
I put all my hidden words
in his pockets, bestowing
my presence on him.

I couldn't live
an inaudible life
of unobservable heartbeats
any more.
(I couldn't)

His face was full of silence
and for some minutes
my hands dangled
between my knees.

All of a sudden
water began to come out
of his face in big drops
and he talked in monosyllables:
"yes" - he said.

Those heavy memories
showed and wrapped in love,
he enveloped my universe
murmuring his words of passion
once more.
