Alphabetarion # Sleep | Marina Tsvetaeva, 1926

Pierre Boncompain


“I want to sleep with you, fall asleep and sleep. That magnificent folk word, how deep,
how true, how unequivocal, how exactly what it says. Just – sleep. And nothing more.
No, another thing: and know right into the deepest sleep that it is you. And more:
how your heart sounds. And – kiss your heart.”

 Marina Tsvetaeva, Letter to Rainer Maria Rilke, Summer 1926
