Echo

Now I won’t live
any more
only once
Everything echoes

My footsteps echo
the ring of the telephone
every word
of yours
and of mine
our kisses
and our touch
echoes

Thinking back
how I first saw you
echoes

The impact
of our love
and our longing
echoes

And everything
I say
about this echoing
echoes
echoes

But I won’t
live again
only once
