MARIA CORAZON

 

By Ilving Tabios-Zamora

 

Because I cannot touch your heart

I look at your face: Your brows arc like rainbows

The socket of your eyes tender like your mouth

 

Because I cannot cuddle your hair

I savor its sight: Drizzling tendrils of black silk

Highlighted with gold and bronze

 

Because I cannot kiss your lips

I hug your smiles: They lilt like a candle flame's glow

Touch like a summer breeze

 

Because I cannot put you in my arms

I catch your shadow: In make-believe I find relief

In the dark of night I wank with lustful delight

 

Alas, I can never own you . . .

 

Caress then, Beloved, my sweet sorrow

Weave the verses of my poems

Hum the melody of songs

 

Again, tonight, I shall dream of you! # # #

Line 11: I catch instead of "I'll catch..."

Line 12: I wank rather than "I wink.."

Thanks!

Quote of the Day

"My mom said she learned how to swim. Someone took her out in the lake and threw her off the boat. That's how she learned how to swim. I said, 'Mom, they weren't trying to teach you how to swim.'"--Paula Poundstone
