Come closer, my love,
so I can kiss you.
Your lips hold the light of the sunset.
Your eyes wear the same shade as mine:
a woody brownish green—
caught between the lonely skies,
where birds fly; they cruise & cope in the blue,
That’s where I hope I can reach & choose you,
from all of the millions of hatched stars
that fall to Earth; I am the one who’ll catch you,
so fall into my arms, my love,
all the world will be ours!
