child bride
unknown

Bright moon
 1
spinning jewel
 2
you are the only lover
 3
fragment of my life
 4
that is faithful, has not died
 5
returns my gaze
 6
without scorn, a command or
 7
laughter.
 8
 
 
My distant twin
 9
witness since birth
 10
to whom i confess every sin, all my dreams,
 11
only you know this silent fire
 12
within my flesh
 13
how fingers of my silhouette
 14
unclench to caress you
 15
submit to desire.
 16
 
 
Alas,
 17
If i weren’t already sold
 18
to another wrinkled man
 19
i would steal you
 20
my ancient love
 21
hide you from the world
 22
just to watch you rise above
 23
the cosmic layers
 24
of my burqa.
