You held me.
I looked at ourselves in the mirror,
and fell in love with
the reflection of our naked bodies.
“Tranquila,” you whispered in my ear
and your warm whisper blew down
the curvy line of my back.
Safe, wrapped in your arms,
my body stopped shaking
and I caught my breath,
feeling my breasts now calm
pressed against your chest.
You kissed me in my cheek, my forehead, my lips.
My eyes dried,
you smiled your sweet smile
and I lost myself in the ocean of your eyes.
Immense and calm,
where we moved along the gentle waves,
deeper and deeper,
into a night of thousands of stars
that too soon faded in the polluted daylight.
