Pretty Knocked On My Door - Poem by Mohammed AlBalushi

Pretty knocked on my door
A light knock barely heard
I rushed to the door
My breath between exhale and inhale
I opened the door gently without wincing
Flashlight
Lost sight for the moment
Bright face
Red apple cheeks
Strawberry lips
Brightened eyes
hair Silk curtain
White marble wrapped in black
I Frozen
She shied and turned red
I trembled
Overflowed river of the sweat
I am all wet
Scream shook the earth
I opened my eyes
Under flood water
The bitter reality
Another beautiful dream
But
The end was wet
