I Love You Through Yourself

Through the Half-Opened Window, Leon-Gontran Damas


on my disdain of the world
a breeze was rising
perfumed with stephanotis{jasmine}
while you drew towards YOURSELF
the whole curtain

Such
do I see you
shall I always see you
drawing towards yourself
the whole curtain of the poem
where
God you are lovely
but so long getting naked

  4. hi
    that is a tremendous line, for me it captures
    the mysterious quality of women.

    thank you.
