I sketch you on the skin of a water that hoofs to the throb of a wind, painting smile in my face like a maquillage for a beautiful bride.

Winter is here, I do not feel cold; I do not feel hurt like a skin wetted with heartbreak.

I do not feel something running out of my body into the throat of a ground.

I mastered the art of enunciating Love without stuttering like the valedictorian of a prestigious university whose speeches fall off like a brittle egg.

Tonight, I plan to make rainbows out of my eyes sans magic,

& create another sun for you out of my pristine palms.

So I imagine myself an astronaut; girdle around the neck of a moon & stare into the face of a fancy water that mirrors the face of a fancy firmament.

When I request smiles, I get blisses as spares;

when I look into your eyes, I see a paradise of birds dampening my body with cloudburst of bliss.

Love is a ray of sunlight & its light is dragged from the plate of your mouth.

I’m in a garden of fresh flowers, & the fragrance of lilies reminds me of many things: 

Of how you twirled me in your heart like the seed of a cherry fruit,

Of how you planted a souvenir that outgrew grace in the climate of my skin.

Queen, I want to arrange every atom of your body into this poem before sun swallows its eyes,

I want to carve you in my heart like a citadel that loathes a heavy hurricane.
