Eve The Luminary

By: pakla

Page 1, For my best friend Precious Phiri,the Secular Saint Inc.,for dearly beloved Eve

The day I struck the Jackpot was

When I met you

 

Like a bar of chocolate

In a glass of milk

Or an overflow of cream

 

Like a casket of gold and diamonds

In my hands

 

Like sweet wine

Of the latest brand and finest brew

 

Like the perfume perfuse

Of celestial incense

 

Like an exotic spice

Of a flavor and aroma

 

Like a castle in the woods

Fully furnished and furbished

 

Like a princess and queen

In a wedding dress and bouquet

 

It’s what you’re to me

And even more

For you’re my everything

 

What water is to vibrant green

Air to living being

Land to intelligent life

And heaven to saint

 

What colostrum is to neonate

Oxygen to asphyxiant

Erythrocytes to anaemic

And life to the soul

 

You’re the wellspring

Of my life

My reason for breathing

The cohesive element

That binds to together

All the broken pieces

In the jigsaw puzzle of my life

 

It’s something sweet

Like a leaf

That falls by gravity to earth

And returns no more

So did I fall for you

Forever

 

Dear Eve

I love you with all

My genome

Spiritual and physical
