an instant of differing perception
to cast a shadow on a flowery gaze –
a heart yearning for completion –
a mind tricking, the joker plays –
i found a moment of exaction,
tainted by a moment of cause –
i fed the animal of attraction
and draped my wounds in a cotton gauze.
i twisted in the covers of redemption
and rolled in the sheets of praise –
i kissed the cheek of my beloved
and fell in an entirely new way.
