THE BEAUTY WITHIN YOU, not the one you create,

Laps against eternity in my eyes.

Under the trees, where Nature provides our shade,

I feel your fingers lightly resting on my neck.

Your fleeting lips – your skin –

Make my voice diffuse: moments of an afternoon.

Lying over my chest you cast your shadow, your hair,

The beauty within you: is ephemeral, is all I need.
