your arm rises from the middle of a colony of orange fish
a Portuguese man o’war stings my arteries
purple venom changes the color of my skin
the ocean holds you back
a red coral hurts my right thigh
my blood attracts sharks
i want to reach you
i dive deeper
phantoms of your love words spread on the surface of my brain
green ivy on a wall of bricks
seahorses show me the way
i see you
you swim with a yellow-edged lyretail
you turn around
your eyes pierce into mine
if you speak we’ll die!
your “i love you” cuts the ocean in two
avalanches of water fall from the sky
stars shed tears on the forgotten tomb of maritime lovers
why couldn’t you wait?
your kisses caress my lips
yellow angel fish surround us
humid silent touches
I am honored and delighted that my poem “i am your soul” was acknowledged by Go Dog Go Café. For more beautiful poetry please visit Go Dog Go Café.
look for me my love
my body shines like lightening
striking down from Mount Olympus
i’m in the tremble of each tear
that poor hungry children shed
i’m the prayer of the lonely
the garden where the virgins blush
the mystic bite of occult ecstasies
i’m hidden in the Sistine Chapel
in haunted graveyards at midnight
i’m bursting from the keys of the piano
which plays alone Beethoven’s 5th
now call for god and breathe me in
for i am your soul.
