Against an Aubergine Sky

“Oh girl among the roses, oh crush of doves, oh fortress of fishes and rosebushes, your soul is a bottle filled with thirsty salt, and your skin, a bell filled with grapes.”- Ode with a Lament, Pablo Neruda

My heart shines bright
Like a burnished peach rose
As each velvet petal unfolds
This life we have together
Sparkles in stark repose
Against an aubergine sky
Breath-stopping colors as I cry
Out your precious name
Setting my soul aflame
With your fiery eyes
