Because love does not beg

Because love does not beg
he does not ask for her body
although all his stars desire it
He simply hides his screams in his eyes

Because love does not beg
he writes silently on the water
that he is jealous
of the air
she breathes

Because love does not beg
he throws stones at the sea
and counts how many times they bounce
and then he throws his heart

Because love does not beg
he ties a string of words around his neck
and hangs himself
so he could dance with her ghost
that is always floating
on his canvass

Because love does not beg.
