The sun cast shadows over my deep sighs
My spirit vibrated a shade of blue.
The moon contrasted your dark spicy eyes,
my mind filled with beautiful images of you.
Love’s intense fire burned within your deep eyes;
And your alluring gaze enslaved my heart.
Your warm, fragile tears revealed I am loved;
And love’s fiery blaze consumed my lost soul.
With you I have no cause to feel worried –
Pain of my history may be released.
With you I can be honest and naive –
Fear of abusive men is soon decreased.
Freedom to love is all I had desired –
Your captivating eyes released my chains.
I burned with white fires of passion for you
While lost deep within your enchanting smile.
Born into a world ruled by heteros;
With the right to murder those viewed perverse.
It’s fine to harm we who lay with the same
Because oppression is what we deserve.
Hounds of terror invaded filled with hate –
We natives were weak and keen to be smashed.
Images of pain made us take the bate –
Miles of wasteland that once housed life now trashed.
