You

I won't call you the love of my life
I have been in love
More than once
Too many blurred faces
Pinned on like dead butterflies
In my belly
I have a big heart you see
It dances to the beats 
Of pain and pleasure
Purple death of heaven 
To the orange resurrection of underworld


And yet I remember you
Better than others
As if you were here last night
My pillow smells of you
Your fingerprints haven't left
The depth of my womanhood
I close my eyes
Your warmth burns my tongue
Poison, baby
Why love tastes so delicious
When I utter your name
Undiluted mix of honey and death
There's an undying fire in my blood
Restless
My eyes are embers
I will look for you in the next one.

-- Many happy returns of the day, You.
