Inclined in the evening

I throw my sad nets towards your oceanic eyes

your eyes, for me, the lightof a distant lighthouse

with effort and resolve, I try to reach

No matter the hours, days, months, years

I need to navigate to reach

your warm and gentle coral lips.

Eyes like oceanic pearls,you are the light God placed

for this sad and solitary boat

Only your light guides an ocean of tenderness and loveā€¦.
