As-You-return

Things return like autumn,
 with leaves, shades and colours
 as your mountain essence
 stick to my collar-bone,
 in the moments
 of nights, haze, dawn.

One by one,
 I circle around
 you, infinite-ball-of-love
 and soaked in your fingers
 and memories of the return,
 this mahogany burns,
 it burns as a bay leaf
 in segments and silvery parts
 I fall into parts,
 your demure pasture of lightnings,
 your mushy belly button
 your mouth of Jasmine

We made love
 to grow old together
 to be a single fallen star,
 we made love for your return
 where I am picked and loved,
 like a frozen pea,
 in your hand.
 And, I wait here
 for your return
 all like a wool,
 Fixation to occur.

  1. I love your use of simile and metaphor as well as the style you employ here, separating the stages of cycled return. Autumn is such a great season to describe the change because it does offer the most vibrant colours, especially the scarlets that run like blood. Passionate, detailed, vivid and beautiful

    Frozen pea used as a metaphor is the icing on the cake.
