Gustav Klimt – Hygieia

Tell me you love me and I won’t object

I won’t think it funny when I awake at dawn to find you gone

I’ll just get on with my day

Until the next

When you’re back

And I know what you want

And you know I can give it to you as you like

And you know not to ask for more

So that when it is over and our days have ended

I can move on to him

And believe his empty promises

And when he says, ‘I love you’

I know what he wants

Gustav Klimt – Adele Bloch-Bauer

…That sad past that I blindly walked

Through the dark beaches of the world

Inhumanely agitates itself

Threatening to disturb the fertile dawn of the moment…

– Julia DeBurgos
