Melancholy Sting

Caught the glimpse
of the living volcano
in the retina of your eyes;

Felt the shimmering heat
of lava steaming
on your eyelashes;

Refracted the flames
Flickering
In your eyebrows

Clued-up your face
glowing
like the burning fires;

Reflected
in the mirror of
my still and tranquil mind;


Offended me
like the sore of stinging nettles
even by your shadow.
