dance with me to the beat of love
where a memory hangs over a cloud
and whispers secrets to the night
calling to the moon to look at us
naked bodies on the sand
romancing a lurid waltz
turning all silence into passionate cry
tongues sealing our salt
twirls of flesh tied in one
ancient desires blushing anew
on the warm carpet of tiny crystal roses
bathed by tropical waves
lucid dreams romancing the mind
where only you can conceive
the power of your gravity
taking over all my fire
until finally subdued
into pulsing

Your Eyes

morning roses
the warmness of their passion
metaphors spelled within my lips
the sweetest delirium
ten thousand birds
singing in my heart

only roses!

your eyes…!

Lapsus Calami

Strange pleasure
to challenge emotions
throw them to the wind
erratic - ardent
unsheltering the narrowness
glass exorcisms
to smile
- inaudibly -
the benevolent certainty
digging the chest
nurturing new roots
migrants - throbbing
to conceive an oblivion
snatching from
the rapt time
its dead
to open the door
praise other fires
grow in them.
