	The red apple of your love,
	Of your lips, is ripe,
	Emblazoned with the fire
	Of my wants and wishes...

	Softly touched
	The doves on your chest
	Together with my heartbeat...

	I am breathless of passion...

	In front of my embrace
	Open yourself up
	To the edges of your love,
	So that I may reach you...

	The waves are carrying me,
	Carrying me to the depths,
	Swaying me down and up...
	The coast is fluctuating,
	Fluctuating up and down...

	Stretch out your hand
	So that I may hold it,
	Lest I get gulped by the sea,
	So that I may at least reach your coast
	To embrace your hips,
	To bend your slim waist
	And to bite with hunger
	The red apple of love...

	I am floating in the sweetness,
	The distance is coming close to me,
	The stars are crumbling
	In my eyes... in your eyes...
	Suddenly the ray fractures
	And the mist covers.

	I recover my consciousness,
	I wake up from slumber,
	Longing for tranquility
	Which breathes with your scent,
	And gives me your flavor...

	On my tongue I feel the flavor of
	The red apple of love.
