Innocence




on every stone
at the bottom of the sea


your face

a velvet landscape
with roots of saffron
and fired earth


your mouth

thirsty for nothing but
dreams


your eyes

dark bridges of promises
a jungle of bridges



a jungle of recreated stars
behind
the golden mask of solstice


silent echoes from
electric eels as
fingertips floating



like words
from unwritten books
in darkness unfolded

pictures of leaves in movement
through a hole in time
unwrapped


your unspoken words


pearls in buried shells
unachievable
never touched by hands
or hungry lips


i cry for strings

You have a great gift when it comes to description. Metaphores are used widely.

Keep it up,
