I Would to Love You

Milena Pavlović-Barili, 1940

I would to love you
More than I’m able
Turned away from the world –
with no time, no space –
to be carved in your reflection.
In an anxiety of existence,
I would,
to immerse my consciousness
into your serenity
setting every tear free
which I must still cry
at the terrible margin
of an imaginary relation

I Would to Love You is a Love written by Milena Pavlović-Barili in 1940. Source
