Airport Thoughts

*****

it's funny how i was thinking these thoughts today about my life now and how i am growing to view the whole love, sex and romance stuff... while at the airport waiting for my flight home, and then i get home to find a friend's email sharing with me these words from one of his favorite movies, The English Patient:

We die, we die
rich with lovers and tribes,
tastes we have swallowed...
...bodies we have entered and swum up like rivers,

fears we have hidden in like this wretched cave...

...I want all this marked on my body.
We are the real countries,
not the boundaries drawn on maps with the names of powerful men...


...I know you will come and carry me out
into the palace of winds, the rumors of water...
That's all I've wanted -
to walk in such a place with you,
with friends, on earth without maps.

i could never have written it as beautifully, as courageously and as truthfully!
