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!
