My Mystic Maiden


My Mystic Maiden

You have worn a magical robe

And a deep luminous tone on your skin.

When I am tempted to kiss your heart shaped lips

I fail to touch

Blood radiates like blinding radium,

I see locks of hair down your neck that tend to bathe cool your stretching chest

I too long for a shower, alas, I 'm swayed

I cry for a straw,

I watch your naval

A pool of love, safe as naval base

When I point my finger

It deepens to a fathomless sea.

I wonder

I shut my eyes

You are incredibly dark and deep sixteen

You are not a body

A spirit

I live and die for it

And you smile back calmly.

Am I hurt or healed?
