Saloua Ben Amor

The Wind Blows 



The wind blows

blood flows, runs to my heart in a flash

memories hit my mind

your scorching kiss, your trembling touch

The wind blows

and my heart groans
remembering you in me, memorizing the agony

The wind blows
your sea-scent, your fervent tongue insanity

The wind blows and kisses me fervently.
