Parpadeos del Marrón
by Ali Tipton

Maroon flickers beneath bitter winds,
The margins between such wicked sins.
Crystalline chiming through tales of charms
Revealing beauty wrapped in his arms.
Sunlight embraces an enchanting birth,
Trembling terrors throughout the earth.
To stop testing her loneliness within
The empty serenity would once begin.
Peculiar whispers continue their sigh
A pessimistic sky bird gives a final fly.
The boat afar is damned to the sea.
She does not want the ring nor him on his knee
Azul bliss, as light as the bubble
Troubling fantasies, fantasizing trouble.
