Momentary Warmth

I'm wrapped in

momentary warmth

I don't know

whether it is a holy wave,

or a guilty light

I don't know

whether it is a picturesque fire,

or muddy wings

Ink of my heart exposes everything

My hand that holds a pen

confesses everything,

and loves everything

Then,

I'm wrapped in

momentary warmth

Even if

it is guilt ,

even if

it is beauty,

even if

it is the paradise,

even if

it is the Hell,

I'm willing to be wrapped in it.
