RED APPLE The red apple of your love, Of your lips, is ripe, Emblazoned with the fire Of my wants and wishes... Softly touched The doves on your chest Wallow Together with my heartbeat... I am breathless of passion... In front of my embrace Open yourself up To the edges of your love, So that I may reach you... The waves are carrying me, Carrying me to the depths, Swaying me down and up... The coast is fluctuating, Fluctuating up and down... Stretch out your hand So that I may hold it, Lest I get gulped by the sea, So that I may at least reach your coast To embrace your hips, To bend your slim waist And to bite with hunger The red apple of love... I am floating in the sweetness, The distance is coming close to me, The stars are crumbling In my eyes... in your eyes... Suddenly the ray fractures And the mist covers. I recover my consciousness, I wake up from slumber, Longing for tranquility Which breathes with your scent, And gives me your flavor... On my tongue I feel the flavor of The red apple of love.
