Infinity is darkness continuous
With no end or hope in sight,
Infinity is timeless, delirious
Passion that burns in flight.

Infinity is expectation
Of exhaltation and fall
Infinity is explanation
Of all the things you cannot recall

Infinity is grass on a meadow
That does not have an end,
Infinity is the shadow
That you try to catch in hand

Infinity is a golden wire
Stretched to completion and in it spent,
Infinity is desire
Reaching out despite your intent,

Infinity is two mirrors
Reflecting each other and through them you,
Infinity is unclear
Infinity is sky blue

To vanish into infinity
Is to become indistinct,
To lose all affinity
For all that you feel and think,

To lose barriers and resolution
And to become not your own,
To welcome destitution
And wealth in one,

To merge with incandescent divinity
And be enough apart
To love it; yes, to achieve continuity
Of mind and heart;

To shine continuously and eternally
And never begin to end
To love intentionally and infernally
To make home of both sea and land

To know infinity is to extinguish
To reduce man to single gasp
To love infinity is to distinguish
True eternity from death's grasp

To live infinity is to know
That there is nothing else true -
Infinity is the flow
Between I and You -

Infinity is not seeing
But being the thing that is will,
Infinity is the streaming
Of time over the hill,

Infinity is truth that is shimmering
Somewhere between night and day;
Infinity is fire that is simmering
Infinity is molding clay

Infinity is intensity
And so, say I,
Infinity is immensity
Within your eye.
