Night's Bliss - Poem by Onyi Ogwumike

Stars kissing the Parisian blue of the pond.
Stars gently pecking the dear beauty Amphitrite on her river smooth cheek.
Balls of light dancing over the rippling surface with nimble toes of white hot night.
Smooth princes,
Wind-whipped curves of marble and ebony.
Trails of his kisses intertwining on my body,
Slowly ranging over my whole in the midnight of April showers,
Which wash me of my reserve.
His lips tip-toeing over my unpaved roads of desire.
I laugh at night’s sorrow,
Throwing a few punches of my own.
