” You know what happens when we touch!”
You know what happens when we touch!
You laugh like the sun coming up laughs
at a star that disappears into it.
Love opens my chest and thought
returns to its confines.
Patience and rational considerations leave.
Only passion stays. Whimpering and feverish…
When you feel your lips becoming infinite
and sweet, like moon in sky….
let me show you one tiny spot of beauty
that can’t be spoken….
