Wear your crooked tenderness,
A teen age hurried by dancing,
In sunlights playful summer dress!
Wear your laughter – flaunt your smile,
Let loins and love exhaust and crumble,
Neath the midnight sun a while.
Mire in temptation, kneel down in the mirth,
Know that love tried and tarnished,
Is better than the one unhurt.
Each night I dream in colours, the paints on your facade
The blues and greens, your brightly reds,
Dripping through the wood work,
Dripping through my depths.
Dilute the pond – I keep oceans.
