it is so long since my heart has been with yours by e.e. cummings

Somebody asked me about the contours of my life. It was a weird, difficult and lovely question. All the same, I don’t quite have an answer.

it is so long since my heart has been with yours
e.e. cummings

it is so long since my heart has been with yours

shut by our mingling arms through
a darkness where new lights begin and
increase,
since your mind has walked into
my kiss as a stranger
into the streets and colours of a town–

that i have perhaps forgotten
how,always(from
these hurrying crudities
of blood and flesh)Love
coins His most gradual gesture,

and whittles life to eternity

–after which our separating selves become museums
filled with skilfully stuffed memories
