For anyone who does not know the true meaning of love, my poems will help you experience all the nuances of a deep love that exceeds the sweetness of a mango.
Love is Sweeter than a Mango
Love is very sweet, precious, and tender like a piece
of mango. We satisfy our desires for mango in touching
its skin with our lips and hands.
Lovely and sweet mango, we grind it piece-by-piece
with our teeth, enjoying its seductive taste, sniffing
its magnificent fragrance.
A mixture of perfumes, delicious fruits, and flowers’
essence combined together in a vial, called Mango.
Mango’s smooth and soft skin tastes like the softness
of lovers’ skin.
We yearn for our lovers as we desire mangos.
Swimming in love’s depths, thirst increases
and drowns us. Like eating mango, the more
we consume love, the more we desire it.
Mango’s intoxication fills us with its passionate, delicious,
Inflamed with love, humiliation falls on our shoulders,
fulfilling our lovers’ instructions---like eating mango
dripping from our fingers requires the juices
be licked up with our tongues.
Love is our fate’s gift, our creator’s grant. Love created from our hearts’ wombs and existed between the corridors of our relationships. Love is heaven on our hearts’ lands and captivates feeling in all of its forms and stages.
