“I wear love”, she said
“Love?”, I ask.
“Love”, she nods
“Show me”, I say.
“Tear lovingly out of the warmest evening sky”
“Six yards of its expanse, six more if you like” She says, sounding like mist, if mist ever sang
“And then?”, I ask, stupefied.
“And then, let it engulf you, waist down, let it fall to your feet. What do you see now?” , She asks.
“I see my arms and breasts, so bare, so stark” I say, timidly,trembling.
“Do you know how the sea splashes against a rock, pleadingly?”
“Let it just as stealthily, reach your shoulder, shrouding your breasts in a temporary death.”
“What do you see now?” she asks
” I see, my navel bared to the whims of winds, slight and rogue alike”, I say.
“Brilliant. What else do you see?” she asks, she sounded like thunder, if thunder ever sang a lullaby.
“I see a stream of light, stretching forever behind, trailing, cascading behind me”, I say.
Just then she holds a mirror to my face, a mirror clearer than the clearest day.
A quiver runs through my veins, strengthening the spark in my eyes
A dull resolve took shape in my heart
And I saw love, when I saw eyes
Which knew how to love
The deadliest lies.
