On the brink of love by Omer Tarin



On the brink of love
by Omer Tarin


I saw her catch love
in a mirror,
the almond of her eyes
blossoming into truth;

I saw him freeze
in that moment,
pitching the tent of his wandering
upon her doorstep; 

When the kohl of night 
stained the ivory of their cheeks
I stole quietly by,
holding my breath
within the hollow of my hands;

Not even the soul dare suspire
on the brink of love's embrace.
