Bitter and sweet

Loneliness is a taste

sweet and a taste bitter

in this delicate meal

that we call life.

 

And throughout this meal

the taste bitter

and the taste sweet

remain as a union of

contradictions that stay

together but want to be apart.

 

I feel that taste bitter

and the taste sweet always

on my eager lips,

always lingering through

night and day and

the longing years of my life.
