Mehndi - Poem by Eila Mahima Jaipaul

slowly tracing lines
along life and heart
delicate lotuses and vines
highlighting sex
making it darker
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
