Poem: "The Immersion" - #mystic #love #yearning #lovesick

Poem: "The Maiden Lips" #poetry #praise #shy #fragrance #ThePinkCastle

Level by level it’s arranged like a palace. Like some outer skirts, try to sheath inner stakes, from touch of those who’re not worthy of its fragrance… Yet news of its beauty travels around in moments, captivating minds of cunning thieves and those who…

  I wish, like the cycles of day and night, our eyes too knew, when to stay open and when to remain close for the rest. How easy it would become should they too follow the order, for both the counts of emerging dawns and the times of darkness. We would…
