Your face before mine
The concept that was administered in my mind
was soon-of-a-sudden lost,
yet, for a good cause and at no cost.
Your face before mine,
the beauty and style I cannot defy;
I wallow in a shallow pit, in its true state hollow -
A pit of amazement - before your feet....
If only I can catch your feet
So be it! ...
If only I could peel off your ankles
'till my love for you does you miracles...
If I can't touch your legs
then let my lungs be brought to rags...
Before your knees my heart kneels,
my spirit bogged down, be it
'till all my insecurities may drown...
I long to sleep that long night again
And to dream about you, inspite of invisible pain...
If only I could fly like a ladybird
Then I'd admire to land on your head,
Or - at its best - on your chest,
Where my soul eternally will find rest!
