Bones to Rest

She is fire, burning my lust. He is water, calming my love.

— Shing Araya

The sheets tangle from inch to inch,

While she flinches,

Tries to catch her breath,

From the rapid movement on her bed.

The dusk suffocates,

Her anxieties and insecurities.

Strongly she grips,

As he holds her hips.

He trembles from the excitement,

As his body releases sweat.

He continues to drive her into another place,

Where their bones rest.

Fire & Water

In my dreams, I see the light she carries in her heart and in reality, I see her eyes sparkling hope like paradise. I love her so much, I carry her name in my heart.

In her dreams, I interfere bringing the courage in my heart and in reality, I give her all the strength I have to secure her from all the roughness the world could give. 'I love you so much, I keep you inside my heart,' she said.
