To M.

Trying to reach your shine
losing myself in the deep green sea
swimming in your eyes
getting to see my face in its shimmer
closer I lean towards nonexistence
closer the olive branches
shroud me…

I fall for them…
sleep.. sleep in me
embrace the mountains
streaked with the green
the smell of earth
entwined with smell of breeze
I reach again to your eyes…
I wake to me facing you once more
and once more I bite a piece of sweetness
leave it melt in my mouth
to the end of throat
choking in the bitterness that is left

let me touch it
for the last blink
before I drown in the green…
