The Two of Us

Day in day out
staring at your empty face.
Are we married?
Why don’t you leave me?

How reasonable these questions
would have seemed
if we my quiet darling had been
reasonable like those reasonable beings.

Is it love
or is it the time that we have spent together
that makes us resemble each other so much?

I don’t know.
As far as I can remember
you have always been there.
There was never a time
when I couldn’t imagine
how you would look like.

It is just that now,
now that we are together
we aren’t supposed to pretend
that we are different anymore.
