Over a silent Mississippi


(Read in caption)

' I find myself collecting all the little pieces of belonging, that you and I left across different time zones. At times in your songs floating over a silent Mississippi, at times in your smile wounding me lovingly. Though there remain a lot of uncertainties to ambulate, and a lot of distance to mitigate. In the quiet gestures of your eyes I've seen cravings alight. In the tender space of your lips, a fierce turbulence placidly swims. Whether yours or mine, or a desperate ours, or simply a poet's fictitious perfume for your favourite flower. It's yours to decide It's yours to take. Star far away in your wake, I let this thought lay: The dusk that strides into the night, has for long been a lover of mine. In the dawn of your skin, I rest my plight and begin to love the light.
