I immersed myself in the springs of your Love and emerged as [the] One. I then wrapped my temple in a cocoon made of rose petals and orchids – closed my eyes and surrendered – to the Universe.
Dreamt of butterflies kissing my hands and collarbones, in a vast garden surrounded by birch trees.
Laid down, hesitant, in the dewy grass and let your cool breeze irreversibly blow through my curls, down my back and gently curve down my spine.
The birds singing high and enchanting melodies in the soft Purple skies reminded me of chimerical times I spent in your arms and the tender kisses we never shared.
In the morning when the sun entered my room, vibrant as a prism, I finally understood that your voice will – forever – live in my memories.
