I’m taking part in Word-High’s 30 Beautiful Filipino Words. Today’s word is Paraluman which means a muse that inspires artistically.  Want to join? Checkout the link at the bottom.:)

Her body was his canvas.

He hasted to paint.

The plains of her face,

His playground.

He spent hours on her eyes,

Hidden secrets he failed to explore.

He coveted her hair.

Stroked fingers through her mane.

Strands of love he failed to bind.

Unbearably soft skin,

He couldn’t resist.

Long limbs tangled with his,

This he longed to capture.

So anxious in his efforts he missed the point,

Her heart.
