Fire: A Love Poem

We don't look at each other's eyes
To see the rays of the sunshine:
We do look at each other's eyes
To see how far we have gone
Through our romantic adventures!

O LOVE, I tell you, one thing is sure:
I'm addicted to your innate beauty —
From now till infinity. Yours is the milk
I sip day and night. Sweetie, cry not in

Solitude when I am no more to kiss

Your perfumed-like scintillating face!

O LOVE, quench my thirst amorously.
When walking tenderly together in the

Paradisiac garden of Eden, be my own Hawwa — Eve; I'll, baby, be your Adam —

Your one-and-only adamant Adamu!

O LOVE, let me swallow all your worries wholeheartedly. Let me, from your innermost thoughts, cleanse the footprints of your fears. Let me marry you and, to you, give all my skeleton. Pocess me!

O LOVE, colonize my subconscious mind. I am all yours; be proud of our soon-to-be union. May it resist the test of time and blossom like a rare rose in the garden of Romanticism!

O, LOVE, you haven't just driven me crazily: you have also fed my belly with the touches of your kindness!

O LOVE, let our heartfelts build their mutual abode in the cloud or let them fly even higher than the dove of peace and bird of seduction in the sky!

O LOVE, let’s disappear lovingly!
