strike a match

with that gentle touch of your

hand which holds my

heart agile and waiting

afloat long waking

Believing in the magic of

that unmatched and




fire of your breath

applied to my cold cheeks

That irrational thrill in my

dreaming memory of a

“Safety Matches” box

I still cling to

at night

    Just beautiful, Mariya. I’m especially touched by these lines:
    “that gentle touch of your

    heart agile and waiting”
