Mehndi - Poem by Eila Mahima Jaipaul

slowly tracing lines
along life and heart
delicate lotuses and vines
swirling
highlighting sex
making it darker
fuller
with lush leaves
more beautiful than reality
dots leading a path to fate
circling, spiraling the head
ringed in memories
stained lines to tell stories
each a mark of where
skin has touched skin
