A Question of Love by Carrie Schneider Why are you here? To cultivate my mind and make my insides blossom to create a ring in my ears piercing my silence. To make me moan with pleasure by your hidden smile. Do you think you know me? Do you? How did this come about? That I was the one you choose, along the ocean waves of bridled haze, majestic in the pearl moon. My eyes aglow from the beauty of a shiny rose, and dancing lilies in a pond. Puddles of murky gray cast their dismal rays upon my soul. Yet, the revealing glow of your smile, dissolves the sadness for awhile. Overflowing exuberance illuminates my soul! You are my wick, Light my candle- Make me burn!
