Night Love

© by  Nephtalí


come humid night be my latin lover

or be Polynesian or marble hued

but come to my senses as your true self

and sparkle and illumine like an opal


cling to my body like dew on the grass

posess me like rivers that hug their beds

be one with my spirit gigantic and strange

and love me tonight when you are so perfect


unveil your softness and cushion my fall

permit me to stroke your chilled velvet body

tell me of your sorrows and your delights

and speak of your secrets in muffled silence
