My cheeks retain the sepia-toned blush, in my eyes remain the sweet image of you walking down the street,
you had smiled graciously looking up at me,
I doubt you remember, but, standing at the same place on my balcony,
every morning I recreate that minute.
I talk with this ecstatic moment quite often,
have so much to say that you won’t get to know, anyway,
it’s more easy; not directly saying it to you
I evolve as new, in each sentence of sentience.
Living a few trivial moments can bring the same joy
the little girl in me felt while catching the sunbeams on the wall
that entered through a small hole in the curtain
every afternoon before the after-school siesta.
Some feelings are like cinnamon honey
the after taste is left on the tongue long after swallowing.
