Yana Djin: Love

what i have asked, Lord, you have granted
thank you for the days 
and nights 
for the rays 
that fall slanted
across the face, 
for the blue lights
on the little boats floating nowhere
in silence of the approaching dawn
in the quiet of the lame separation
the separation… always the separation
in time and space
thank you for the beloved face
under my closed eyelids
time tugs at me and space, 
the space laughs
like a clown, evil,
they are helpless, Lord, there 
where there is love – 
helpless and caught 
until they simply disappear,
turn into naught,
and love remains –
bare like a holy lamb –
without pain –
as if to say: see me. I Am
