I tasted a glimpse of paradise
when I first kissed him on this planet
my monochromatic world.
He became the foundation of strength
I the support
where his words wove the wonder of two worlds
together we built a bridge that earthed our once lost souls.
He revoked the weary from my smile
breathed hope into me
& made it a home.
my everyday paradise
where listening to his heartbeat
is my lush lullaby of nature serenading my moon.
It might be a tiny part of paradise but to me, I’m so glad he invaded my planet.
in that moment
when your presence pirated my mind
you threw an invisible lasso that tightened around me
in a time when I’d been an emotional shipwreck
you chose to be my anchor
among those sweet exotic scents of summer that surrounded you
sinking us deeper into wetter sands
watching a fragrant frangipani flower
follow a floating fallen leaf.
I dream of the taste of salty skin
that washes away my fortress of sand
hoping to stop me sinking into this sorrow
to stop trembling from the aftermath of a tornadic storm
the waves whispered to the mermaids of that one summer love
where you were my sizzling summer season
symbolic of our sensual life-long story
it was just a closed door in the rain
there’s magic within a mere moment
if you listen to the wordless silence
that echoes for the moon
I pray in this rain
carrying my jar of wishes
where among those ashes’ crystals are formed
to be tossed beyond
the time-told traditions
high into this magical storm
beyond the whispers melting into the mosaic wall cracks
that threatened to shadow our eternal dance on their beliefs
because I knew,
amid this slow centred storm,
he was the lightning
bringing his thunder
chose to cross that corner
was ready to dance eternally within the rain.
