I remain

I remain

how brave you stand
illusions over illusions
no dragon can win
the starry dust
in your eyes
i dare you
keep me asleep
if you can

butterflies of time
let them dry the tears
ashes of ancient myths
let them whisper secrets
i dream to know you
hopeful i remain

how weak the sun
rises next to me
no mortal charm
can erase the flame
the pearls of a kiss
you chase me
through the wind
i hate to be awake

colors of the sea
let them wash the salt
thorns of beauty
let them crumble the pain
i save your scent
calm i remain

until there is the rain …

Storm

Storm

I wanted a storm tonight, a wild one,
with thunders and lightnings,
with heavy rain and brutal wind.

I needed the sound of the hurricane
to blunt the sound of my running heart
when I heard you knocking on my door,
when the bell woke up my abandoned confidence.

I needed the electric sparks lighting the sky,
to hide the glow of triumph in my eyes,
when I saw you coming to me with hope,
with million questions about tomorrow.

I wanted the noise of the raindrops to mix with
the noise of my melting, fragile self-defense,
when the perfection of your face met the look of my eyes.

And the shiver down my spine, the tremble through my skin,
I needed you to think it’s because of the cold  air,
not because of your lips touching my lips with finest kiss.

I wanted to hide my weakness about you for a while,
to stand independent and confident for another moment,
before your charm conquered me, before your hands took my hands
and your voice asked me to follow you in the maze of love.
