The Yellow Moon and I


as the connoisseur
of love molecules under the yellow moon,
i collect happiness like trophies
one memory at a time;
bathing in the fragrance of your beauty

i waltz through
the guiding light of hope
into the inner chamber of your being
invading the hidden universe of fun
where love and passion cohere

i adapt
i survive and flourish
like the shooting star
like the lost boy in the thrill of victory
in the sea of rainbow colours

i extract the oxygen
of desire from a flurry
of love particles
in the forgotten places
of the heart; savouring your essence

you nourish
my soul with glee
giving me the reason to smile
a wonderful smile
even in the darkest of days
