All the shades of the world and I find myself burning up in this upheaval
From the heat of your sweat-glazed amber skin, I stop breathing reality
and give into the evolution of something I don’t know,
this unknown that is tempered by the strength of you,
the poignancy of your convictions which I believe can sustain me for a lifetime.
I marry this moment because this is what is promised and well this is when it counts the most,
but I’ll continue to love you after the blood dries
and the inevitable dawn of change rises over us and we are made into something new overnight.
My love will transform and greet you in your new form
and will never lose its consistency
even under the pending brightness of a new Libyan sun.
