Photo: "Midnight Sunset"

Can I kiss your lips
and watch you light up the sky
with fireworks of infinite colors
like a sunset parading across the night
a dance in slow motion
syncopated in your eyes
the only way to run from the world
escaping the madness in life
and if only for a moment
nothing else matters
you erase the sense of time
I become swallowed by the beauty
in your eyes.
