Magic Carpet

Magic carpet
carry me
to a land I don’t know
to one I can’t see
where nights are sweet
with spice-filled air
intricate tapestry
my only windows
billowing at sunset
over sandy dunes

rolling
over horizon’s mirage
of mysterious love
waiting
for my camel to arrive
ride me torchlit to you

I will wear your words
as my jewels

your kisses
as my lipstick

your promise
as my destiny

your love
as my robe

you
as my
treasure

  1. A Sweet and Romantic piece Emily. Very much has that Arabian Nights or Aladdin quality in it. Love how you used things in relation to those stories to describe your relationship with this person ( or the speakers relationship).
