Museum of Memories

"it is so long since my heart has been with yours

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

that i have perhaps forgotten
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 skillfully stuffed memories"

- E. E. Cummings (Love and its Mysteries)
