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



Dear Eve

I love you with all

My genome

Spiritual and physical
