Mask

An ocean of faceless people
and there you were
unmasked: your nude mouth
quite suddenly
a forbidden territory.
I crossed its vast landscape
like a pilgrim
longing for the sweet sound
of your voice, of words
quenching my ear,
and this lost knowledge
of true love
from a single kiss.
It all came back to me,
the flame of many old dreams
when you were mine —
body, heart, and soul entwined.

Rain

Nothing else
mesmerized him
like rain.
Until it came relentlessly
day and night
I watched
every trickle and patter
and felt
that all this time
in each and every raindrop
he was never absent.

Rebel

In a world
that so
stubbornly chooses
apathy, love
is the single
most dangerous act
of rebellion.

Fragile

Kiss me gently
under this fragile moon.
Whisper in my ear
the sound of the ocean.

Rose

Your heart, my darling,
is like a rose,
and there in the center
a hundred seeds,
enough to fill
a thousand rose gardens.
And when you flower, oh,
how love blooms
a million times over.
