Is it ok to want to capture every raindrop
And feel it again and again and again
Falling against my skin, through my skin, into my soul
Quenching a thirst I never felt till gone?
Is it ok to memorise every smell
And draw every picture
And savour every taste
And every little thing
That moves mountains in my heart—
Intoxicating roses, lovely lavenders and fresh mint,
Blaring reds, calming blues, happy yellows and drowsy greys,
Sweet vanilla, bitter chocolate and oh, strawberries!—
Just to feel it again,
And understand every sensation,
The buzz, the beating of this heart
And the skips caused?
Is it possible to dwell so much on those memories
And yet not live in the past?
To know the consequences of yesterday
And yet act today?
To live in my head
And yet fall in love with the world around?
Is it possible (say yes) to love poetry (also: chaos)
And yet long for silence?
