I open my veins #poem #poetry

I open my veins in warm waters
each time when you like what I write
the sound of the sands in the darkness
the eyes of the desert are dried
the midnight windows are opened
I jump like a lynx from a cage
dressed in cold winds and in black
barefoot
I land on the yolk of young times

I paid all the bills do not worry
I buried my bracelets by the green wall
white shirts are lined in the closet
this sand tastes like canvas and paint
I sharpen my eyes
my fingers are stretched
from the cosmic tomorrow
I enter tonight

I’ll return do not worry
disheveled, loves cry between us
remember the words of Persian Sibyl
who sold you my soul for three coins?
the time is fluid like rivers
waterlilies can bloom in the sand

    1. Thank you so much, sweetheart. And thank you for being you. Is my world more magical than yours? That’s debatable, is’t it?
      You are such a wonderful friend.

  1. Sometimes we are so dumb that we miss the opportunity to have true love by our side. Your verses relentlessly convey your feelings and make an excellent poem. I enjoyed it a lot .. Greetings.

  2. Yes blooms in the sand – such a powerful metaphor… Altogether a treat to read and I will be back for more, for sure…

  3. Wonderful imagery and phrases in this poem! I love the lines:
    β€˜I jump like a lynx from a cage
    dressed in cold winds and in black
    barefoot
    I land on the yolk of young times’.

  4. My goodness, I take my place in the serpentine line of adoration and accolade. My favorite line /I buried my bracelets by the green wall/–leaving me pining for back story.

    1. Aw.. Glenn. I am so humbled and honored by your comment. A thousand thanks.
      May you have a magical day.

  5. To be read is to be devoured is to be loved is to drown: One offers one’s poem up as if mounting a cross here, and the weave is darkly exotic, almost poisonously erotic, scented with Mallarme but closer. Well done.

    1. Brendan, I am humbled and honored by your comment. “scented with Mallarme but closer.” I am doubly honored. MallarmΓ©’s and his fin de siΓ¨cle style. The symbolists are one of my favorites, so you really touch my heart. Thank you so much.

      I want you to know that I am an admirer of your work. I’d love – if you would agree – to have you as a guest poet on my blog. It’s totally up to you but featuring your work on my blog it will be a great pleasure.

      Please let me know

      Regards,
      Gabriela

    1. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your beautiful comment, Paul.
