her eyes beams fireflies
fluttering in empty belly
illuminating

Endy, unaware
I admired her vain mystery
hid behind pink clouds

with red earth in his boy palm
molding it into dreams

silvery, like the moon
floating by the orange sun
keeping warm, my dark.

with fervor, she moans
tears that singe her forlorn face
leaving trails of hurt

daily I sing you're rouhi
Ya ‘Aburnee forever.

to all inviting, calls
for warmth and safety, victuals

drinking in adulation
but clouds hid it all

I was in the flame,
heaven was cold and frozen
I died peacefully

A misty morning -
lust in the air, Eve unaware
one bite and man fell

water runs underneath 
dolphins swimming with the current
life snail moving along

Parched throat and sprained soles,
Scorching sun rays, baked words
