Temptation – Devika Mathur

I know the formations
when I had your face
close to my lips.
voids went flickering
with aerospace dissolved
in the hymns of my carrot eyes

I tore up the blatant sky
that rummage your body
and your smell,
for I sleep with my eyes
dipped in your presence.
Soft balls of cotton inside
thundering my long legs
all about your hair-locks
all about your language of love.
I became warm inside
your dewy arms and moles.
Your words, temple bells.

The whiteness of a damp canvas
augments as my pupil cries
for a slick kiss to form knots.
Knots of bond. Memoirs.
a reality or is this what illusion feels like?
