“When I have said “

When I have said ” I love you ” I have said

Nothing at all to tell you; I cannot find

Any speech in any country of the mind

Which might inform you whither I have fled.

In saying ” I love you ” I have gone so far

Away from you, into so strange a land;

You may not find me, may not understand

How I am exiled, driven to a star

Till now deserted. Here I stand about,

Eat, sleep, bewail, feel lonely and explore,

Remember how I loved the world, before,

Tremble in case that memory lets me out.

Islanded here, I wait for you to come

Waiting the day that exiles you to home.

Valentine Ackland (Love speaks its name)
