(my want) and this it seems

Lines on e.e. cummings’ “[i carry your heart with me(i carry it in]”.

Nr 1 from The Atom Series, Hilma af Klint


and this it seems (can’t you tell),
that I in all things, need and weary,
reach, as lips seek air, and then there
rises you (my want)


to be as if (to see and sound)
the sound of your dreams, arms
and face, reaching to sing no secret,
you (my want)


now and next (into ever then),
we beginning (as seed to flower),
our becoming (as bud to branch),
to find, always, you,

(my want) and this it seems
