The Necessary Endurance of the Infinite’s Possibilities, or, the Saying Within the Said

So much to be said
Afraid that the “*saying*” will surpass the possibility of what can be “*said*”
The sadness, already filling my heart with anticipation
Alternatively, the joyous expectancy of the infinite enveloping my soul: what has always been and what will ever be
A little death, I will suffer: a death within life
Nonetheless, life remains, possibilities sustain
Knowing what will be is what will provide my Being with nourishment
The hole to be left in my heart will be temporally insignificant, when compared to the fullness of time, which we will have, when…

We have waited before, though perhaps not so painfully
A waiting to have love realized, to embrace and lose ourselves in the joy of our always has been: the unconscious brought forth to consciousness, the concept made concrete reality
We will wait once again, this time in the fullness of patience
Patience: from L. patientem, “bearing or enduring without complaint”
To bear and endure the unbearable and unendurable; it will be done
Impossible, however, to promise that it will be possible to do so without complaint
For the complaint from my heart already bears what is yet to be, though soon

Yet, hope abounds, manifesting its joy in polymorphous imaginings
From four to one, to seven: from four to three to six
This is my hope, our hope
Let us make it be
Certainly we will
We have always been together
We will all be together
Just know it
Finally, what I am “*saying*” has, perhaps, been said

Artist's Description

A poem anticipating a parting, which painful as it will be, will only exist in material temporality. It may be sustained in the knowledge that we can never be separated in the mystical, metaphysical infinite. A paradoxical mix of temporary sadness and eternal joy.
