You control my life like a puppet;
commit arson on my fragile nerves,
shatter the lanterns of my soul,
rob the dreams of my mind.
You swim through my bluish veins;
play with the waves of my blood,
pluck the flowers of my soul,
hunt in the forests of my dreams.
You dance inside my throbbing heart;
rivers gurgle out of my fingers,
sun drops ooze out of my eyes,
fragrant trees run barefoot towards me.
You caress the shadows of my soul;
clouds glitter in my radiant light,
flowers blossom in my barren life,
my poems become fields of poppy and mimosa.
You unleash your magical weapons on me;
create violent earthquakes in my life,
lock me in the prison of your eyes,
and take the keys away with you.
