"Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.."- Antoine de Saint Exupéry

We kissed, we embraced, we laughed and we cried / Ne-am sărutat, ne-am strâns, am râs şi-am plâns

We kissed, we embraced, we laughed and we cried/Ne-am sărutat, ne-am strâns, am râs şi-am plâns,

by Mihai Beniuc
“We kissed, we embraced, we laughed and we cried,
We broke up, we reconciled and
We kissed passionately like barbarians,
Knowing that we will cry after we embraced.
I do not even think it has any point from now on
To make all forms and kinds of vows
For we may avoid to bump on the way
And we will look at each other simpler, more quietly.
We are like the poles of a voltaic arc
That make a bridge, of fire,when they are close;
Or maybe it’s just me, poor poet,
Telluric Anteus of the archaic myth,
I ignite myself at your bosom. – If they will bury us
In two, the tomb will be our volcano.”

——————————————————-

Ne-am sărutat, ne-am strâns, am râs şi-am plâns,
Ne-am despărţit, ne-am împăcat iar

Cu patimă ne-am sărutat barbar,
Ştiind că-om plânge, după ce ne-am strâns.

Nici nu mai cred că are rost de-acum
Să facem fel şi chip de jurăminte,
Că ne-om feri să ne ciocnim în drum
Şi ne-om privi mai simplu, mai cuminte.

Suntem ca polii unui arc voltaic
Ce punte fac, de foc, când stau aproape;
Ori poate numai eu, poet sărman,
Teluricul Anteu din mit arhaic,
La sânul tău m-aprind. – De-or să ne-ngroape
În doi, mormântul ne va fi vulcan.”
